Daniel, the first thing I would do is read .jeff's excellent article
"Links & JavaScript Living Together in Harmony":


Secondly, you should first fix the errors in your JS that are already
appearing. I am seeing at least an 'object expected' as well as
'return statement outside of function' in various places. (note: NS
is great for JS errors, type "javascript:" in the address bar after
you attempt something to see whats going on, it will give you great
error reporting).

I also find that if I strip out everything but the actual widget I am
working on in a separate page, it is much easier to work on. I would
put one menu on a single page with nothing else (no status message,
no nothing) and after reading that article, see what you come up with
and post back here.

Also, display should always have a value, either "block", "inline" or
"none", but not "".
