In chrome, when I put my mouse over any of the menu items below, the menu starts jumping up and down, and I cannot choose any item. Has anyone else seen this? It happens in Chrome, but not FireFox nor IE.

Are you using the latest public release version of Chrome? Also are you using any plugins that use JavaScript? IE FireBug. Try Disabling all plugins and making sure the Chrome version is the latest public release. – Hugh Wood Dec 5 '12 at 14:45
You modified may have done some css styling wrong, and the hovered menu is bigger than the css styles. Therefore causing a loop, on and off the menu. – Mike Dec 5 '12 at 14:52
@Mike - I did not modify any styling – Daniel Williams Dec 5 '12 at 14:55
@Hugh - yes, the latest chrome. I do have plugins, and the IE tab plugin makes this work properly without jitter. – Daniel Williams Dec 5 '12 at 14:56
Try just disabling the plugins, to see if it works, because on the exact same menu an out of the box install works perfectly. Being Chrome you can also just run the JavaScript profiler to debug the situation and find out what's going on. – Hugh Wood Dec 5 '12 at 14:59
