reporter, could you check the js scripts for 'document.layer'? Also could you
provide the js source? Or email it to me?

If not, this bug will be closed

Reporter, if this is your site you will need to update it to support the W3C
Standards and Gecko/Mozilla. Otherwise you will need to contact the vendor who
wrote the app. We can not do anything with this as it stands.
