When I place my cursor on a spry menu bar the blue tab appears but the properties panel shows blank. 

The menu bar works OK but the changes I can add via html are limited.

I think there is probably an error in the markup.  Advice appreciated please.

I use Bootstrap responsive framework for my layout and that contains responsive navbars.  But it's  not worth switching to a framework unless you intend to use it for everything.   

Bootstrap 4 Navigation Bar

Bootstrap 4.2.1 Navbar with Centered Brand/Logo

Here is a non-Bootstrap approach with pure CSS.

And another one with jQuery

jQuery slimMenu - A lightweight responsive and multi-level navigation menu plugin.

Spry is dead.  It was removed from DW in 2012.   Adobe hasn't updated those scripts in a dog's age.   You should replace Spry with something better that works on all devices.

To answer your original question, use the online code validation service and fix reported errors.

OK.  Understood.  Thanks.

Are you able to suggest a source of menus that work on all devices please?
