I've reduced top to 1em.

One more info:

The Gna.css theme does not have the 'gap experience', because it has an additional

.topmenuitemmainitem{
border: thin solid #b3e2e3;
}

that the default savannah has not.

That makes the li item hitarea a little bit bigger than 1em height so more 1.1em and so IMHO no gap.

I vote against a default 'stone age menu'.

What is against 'top:1em;' as quick fix?

BTW: li.topmenuitemmainitem{} has

float:left;
display: inline;

in base.css which results in that the div class="topmenu" has calculated height 0.

Removing the float would give you back the defined background-color of the Savannah.css in .topmenu{}

i certainly have no objection to making "stone age menu" the default. as far as i'm concerned it's your decision, Ineiev :).

Then in other browsers the dropping item list would overlap the menu line and make it harder to select the neighboring items from topmenu. I wonder if reducing top to 0.8em or 0.9em could fix it for you.

> FWIW, personally, my recommendation is to use the "stone age menu" feature, selectable from the "My Account Conf" page, for more reliable UI operation.


Indeed, the submenu doesn't drop in browsers like NetSurf 3.2.  the "stone age" menu works, but it e.g. isn't selectable for anonymous users. should we make it default?

Thanks for the CSS fix. I trust Ineiev will consider/apply.

FWIW, personally, my recommendation is to use the "stone age menu" feature, selectable from the "My Account Conf" page, for more reliable UI operation.

There is a gap between the mouseover of a topmenu entry (like 'Tasks' and its submenu entries, which results that the submenu disappears before able to hit the submenu item. (or you are fast enough with mouse crossing the gap is not detected.)

Removing the CSS top:1.1em; in ul.topmenuitemsubmenu{} of base.css seems to mitigate that problem.

Experienced: Firefox 67 (macOS), otter-browser (webkit-backend 602.1)

No problem: Safari and Chrome (macOS)
