From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.1.2 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020104
BuildID:    0.9.7

If HTML widgets are absolutely positioned inside a relatively positioned inline
element, they cannot become active. basically, you get a nice little "picture of
a widget" that doesn't actually DO anything.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
<span style="position: relative"><button sylte="position:absolute">Hello
World</button></span>
