Problem with Menu when on left side block

Hi, just recently installed the Menu plugin and noticed the following behavior:

When the menu is in a block on the left, submenus fly out but you can't click on them. They disappear before you can get to it. When the same exact menu is in a right hand block, it works perfectly. However, I of course prefer to have my menu on the left Smile

Is this a bug or is there something I can change in a file to make it behave properly?

Also, I noticed that you can't use a graphic for the menu when it's in a block. I don't know if that's by design or if it's a bug. The colors work fine, but the graphic won't show.

Also, when adding a menu element, and I wave my mouse over the position dropdown box (where you can select what element is appears after), a full page copy of my home page bursts onto the screen and I have to move around it to enter the rest of the information. That by far is the oddest behavior I've seen in a long time LOL! Using Firefox if that matters.

Hi,

Which version of the menu plugin do you use and which theme?

Did you try in the menu options: Menu Alignment to align the Menu to the left or right?

Geeklog 2.0, Menu 1.0, Modern Curve theme from the GL 2.0 pack.

I did try the right and left alignment but it didn't help. The flyout menu actually has some sort of space between the parent menu and submenu when on the left side whereas that doesn't occur when it's on the right--the flyout submenu is flush against the parent menu, just thought I'd mention that in case it helps.

The problem seems exclusive to the Modern Curve theme. I switched themes to professional to test and the menu worked fine on the left.

Is there perhaps something missing in the modern curve theme that would make this work?

This is a css issue with overflow propriety.

PHP Formatted Code
div#container div#wrapper div#leftblocks {
   float: left;
    margin-right: 780px;
    overflow: auto;
    padding: 0;
    width: 180px;
}


and

PHP Formatted Code
div#container div#wrapper div#rightblocks {
   float: left;
    margin-left: -180px;
    overflow: auto;
    width: 180px;
}


Remove it will solve then problem.
