There is stuff all over the web on this issue, and I have tried everything with no luck, and got so frustrated I gave up. Hopefully some kind person out there can help me.

You can see the issue at http://webrecipemanager.com/mywrm

Using internet explorer

Log in with

user mywrm
p/w mywrmpass

The recipe with the pdf should load, but if not - open the left menu and click on the mimosa salad recipe in the favorites section.

Then just scroll down the page and watch the joy :)

The problem is that in Internet explorer a pdf in an iframe sits above my banner and menu when you scroll down the page.

I guess it is cause by the top menu being absolutely positioned and the z-index for the frame being higher. If it is possible to fix, try setting the z-index of your menu higher than the iframe.

Changing the Z-index appears to have no effect.

It may be a "feature" of IE11 that iframes are treated differently. Have you searched to see if this is a known problem?

Have you tried this "add an extra iframe" solution?

Have you tried using actual, old school frames for that page -- instead of an iframe?

Looks like they aren't supported in html 5

They aren't part of the HTML5 spec but every browser supports them and will support them for a very, very long time. Plus, only your outer layout would be the HTML4 frames page. Each frame would be a HTML5 page, so everything would still be HTML5.

I tried it. IE no longer rendered the pdf at all.

Have discovered that I also have the same issue in Safari, hmmm that's not good as all is good in chrome.

...and just an aside, decided to go right to the source. Spent 2 1/2 hours with a microsoft technical support person yesterday. Was really surprised they took the time. In the end they said it appears to be a compatibility issue :) I asked if there was another level of support, and was told yes we have a second level of support, but it will cost you $149. Oh yay, waiting for an email from her supervisor :)

What did you try? Did you put your top bar in a different frame than the content area -- and then still put the PDF in an iframe?

In my experience, IE and Safari are buggiest browsers. IE is gotten better while Safari has gotten worse.

I tried putting the pdf in a frame.

Now I have given up the whole pdf idea, and I'm converting the pdf to an image and displaying that. Now the only issue is that the image is a differnt size in IE - does it never end - haha

I will deal with it.
