    dropdown menus not working in chrome


    I am running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit and 2 days ago the dropdown menu on ESPN stopped working. It works fine on Firefox (see screenshot) I cleared my browser cache, deleted my browsing history, deleted my default profile, removed Chrome entirely from my PC, cleared reg settings, reinstalled Chrome(twice..once with reg one with new beta version), reinstalled flash, java, and nothing has worked. Anyone else ever have this happen and what on earth can I do to make it work? Thanks in advance.

    Excuse me, but can you provide more details on your issue? Windows 8 isn't in a beta anymore and this may be at fault of ESPN's site. I opened ESPN and the dropdown menu did work fine. Maybe try IE or Chrome on Desktop or metro, it may be the browser's compatibility too.

    Hope this helps!

    More details...how. It's working on IE and on Firefox...also on Chrome (on my other 2 PCs). I have now installed the Dev version on my desktop PC, but that also does not work.

    How to fix your problem


    I had this problem and a guy told me how to fix it on a different forum: Type in "about:flags" in the omnibar, and find the flag called 'Enable touch events'. Make sure it is set to 'Disabled'. Should take care of your problem.


    Worked great. ESPN dropdown works again.
