Links toolbar should behave like menu toolbar

    When the links toolbar is visible and I click on a folder to drop down the
    links "menu" for that folder, I have to DOUBLE CLICK on another folder to
    drop down its menu.

    The links toolbar would be MUCH easier to use if it behaved like a classic
    menu toolbar, where if I click one folder and then move the cursor over other
    folders, their menus automatically spring back up or down.

    Works for me here - click on folder, hold cursor over sub folder and
    contents are displayed. IE has certainly done that since version 6.......

    I'm not referring to subfolders... I mean another folder in the same
    heirarchy. Example: you have 2 folders next to each other in the Links
    toolbar. Click the one on the left, and then move the cursor to the one on
    the right. The menu doesn't automatically drop down. You have to double click
    the new folder to open it.

    Why would you want to do that?

    Sorry, but your question makes no sense.

    What he is asking is this: click on "File" and the File menu opens. Now
    slide your pointer to "Edit" and it automatically opens the edit menu without
    requiring an additional click. This enables you to browse through folders
    without having to click on each one. Not a big issue, but it is a common
    feature in every Windows program I know of and has been for a long time.
    Seems like it would be available in IE7, as well, though I personally could
    care less about it.
