Menu applet refresh problem - please help

I have a basic applet to provide a drop-down menu. The applet is in the top frame, and there are two bottom frames that contain the pages pointed to by the menu items. The bottom frames have meta-refresh tags to reload themselves.

It works fine in IE, but in Firefox the menu disappears whenever one of the bottom frames refreshes, which can make it frustrating to navigate the menu hierarchy.
Any ideas on how to stop the open menus from disappearing?

Can you post the pertinent code? Can't tell a whole lot from what you've said so far....

Hello.java



It won't let me post the HTML file code for some reason...just put the menu applet in the top frame, and have a bottom frame with a meta-refresh tag set to a few seconds.

I rewrote the menu applet using AWT instead of Swing and it fixed the problem. Not sure if it's an issue with Java or Firefox.
