We have a weird problem with the asp:menu control in IE6 , this does not happen in IE7 or Firefox.
We have implemented an <asp:menu> control for site navigation, the menu has four main categories, and is at most 2 levels deep in some parts, there are in total around 40 menu items; we add/remove menu items dynamically depending
on user permissions. Now the problem with IE6 is that if a user spends some time hovering over the menu items, the browser eventually crashes. I have looked everywhere and have found no answers to this issue, I looked for bugs in the implementation of asp:menu,
on (and maybe a fix/workaround) or has actually seen this happen before!
Thanks for your help:

Style Sheet, and DOM manipulation will crash IE6.
As for a fix, I'd recommend upgrading your web browser to IE7.
Hope that helps, good luck!

Thanks, I will try to explore other alternatives.
Sadly the application is for a corporate environment where they do not envision a move to IE7, they are still running Windows 2000 (which comes with IE5 if I recall correctly), and making them move to IE 6 was a herculean effort!
