Frontpage showing menu problem

Version:           unspecified
OS:                Linux

Initially, the menu looks ok. But when I hover with the mouse to expand the
menu, the whole support section drops down under the developer section.

This is most likely because of a lack of space horisontally.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Load kde.org frontpage in Firefox 3.6.3
Hover mouse over Support menu

Actual Results:  
The whole sections drops under the developer section

Expected Results:  
Just a normal dropdown with the support section on the same level as other

It should be fairly easy to fix this and there are probably several ways to do

I did a quick check with Firebug and you have a file


On line 63, there is a statement:

with: auto;

If you instead set

with: 851px;

the menu will display just fine instead of dropping down.

Another way might be reducing padding/margins on the individual elements in the
menu so they get closer to each other. But with the current setup, 851 pixels
is the minimum with needed to keep everything on the same level. If you try
with 850 pixels, the support section drops down.

Any way you fix this, it should be done as it looks very bad and can cause a
bit of confusion.
