CSS Issue in Win IE. Help please!

I run a website and am having a little difficulty getting the CSS to work properly in Internet Explorer. I am trying to implement the search field into a little 'pop-up' in the navigation. It works properly in FireFox and Safari, but in IE for Windows the pop-up shifts diagonally instead of directly below. Any ideas on how to fix this?

View CSS cascade on IE for Windows

Is there an application for Internet Explorers on Windows that will let you click on or select a page element and view the cascading css rules that are being applied to that element? (Something similar to the Web Developer toolbar for Firefox or Xyle scope for Safari).

Why does IE hate my website?

Why does IE hate my website? I've got it looking decent in Safari and Firefox, but it looks hideous in Explorer. Having done a fair amount of Googling, I've come to the conclusion that it's probably related to one of Explorer's notorious CSS rendering bugs, but my self-taught CSS and HTML is not enough to enable me to pinpoint and solve the problem.

How can I remove the status bar for IE6 WinXP SP2 users?

I am managing the production of a web application, which, for various reasons, must happen in a window with no status bar. Unfortunately, some security patch for ie6 with winxp sp2 renders the javascript that turns off the status bar ineffective. Any solutions?

Windows XP crashing

Win XP Problem: Windows Explorer (and My Computer) keep crashing. If I bring either up, it crashes immediately (the computer doesn't crash). Around the same time, I noticed I'd acquired some spyware. So I ran Ad-aware, and it seemed to get rid of the bad stuff. But Explorer still crashes. I ran Norton Anti-Virus, which claimed it found viruses but couldn't fix them because I needed to adjust the properties of some of the Norton files. But I can't adjust these properties, because I can't get to the files (because Explorer crashes). Help.

Help me with this CSS box model problem!

CSS question. Usually, I can figure these things out. This one has me stumped. I know its a box model problem, but none of the usual fixes seem to fix it. Everything looks right in Mozilla, Firefox, and Opera. Bigger, better explanation inside, along with some code. [more inside]

Bloggery Mystery

This is an embarassingly simple question, but after plowing through the Internet Explorer prefs, I can't find the answer.

When using blogger, a small window is left on your screen with a "close" button. When you click on it, a warning pops up: "this web page is trying to close your window and do strange things to your cat." and then you have to click a confirmation button.

Yeah, yeah, I know I can close the window three other ways, but for weak, idiosyncratic reasons would like to just click on that "close" button.

(why do I feel like"Monk" here...)

IE Favorites

Why do IE favicons stop appearing? I'll bookmark a site, and for a while it will have its nifty little favicon next to it in the Favorites menu of the browser, then POOF!, it's gone. (Please don't bother with answers like "Switch to Mozilla" or "Microsoft sucks!", I'm curious to know why this happens, I'm not soliciting opinions)
