Try inspecting the code of the site (in Netsurf press F8) in a text 
editor.  Search for a unique-ish word that is used in one of the 
menus.

You might find a bunch of <li> stuff matching all the menu words to a 
specific URL within the site, including the menu words that would 
appear as a drop-down in the mainstream browsers.

I recently found this to be the case in one site I use a lot, so I 
concocted myself a little "menu-bypass.html" page that takes me direct 
to any page I want.


(PS:  If this works for you, howbout writing it up as a hint&tip for 
Archive?)
