I am experiencing this issue also in Google Chrome Version 31.0.1650.57. However, I have come across it while implementing the navigation menu widget within my own development project. I am using Bootstrap V2.2.2 and Wt V 3.3.0.

It seems as though the JavaScript associated with Wt, is adding absolute positioning to the unordered list associated with the class "dropdown-menu". When I change the positioning to static, as it is in the bootstrap-responsive.css v2.2.2, and also delete the following style

.nav-collapse .dropdown-menu {
    display: block !important;

which is found in wt.css, I see that the layout is corrected.

I have attached screenshots of the bug as seen here. In the developer tools console at the bottom of the attached images, I have shown what I changed.

After further testing, simply adding static positioning will not fix the problem. A media query will need to be used as the menu needs static positioning only when the browser window is less than 979px.

@media (max-width: 979px) {
    .nav-collapse .dropdown-menu {
        position: static !important;

Keep in mind that at this point my solution is very "hacky". Hopefully, someone can come up with a better solution that does not involve media queries and overwriting the JavaScript.
