There are several menu buttons on left of that page which are not visible
unless you happen to move the cursor over them. That's because they are
white buttons and are supposed to be surrounded by a blue area (which I
discovered by viewin in IE)

I've confirmed this problem also using mozilla on Win2000 PC.

I've notified the web site owners, so maybe they will change it before
anyone from mozilla checks.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to
2. move mouse pointer up and down slowly on left side. menu buttons become visible when they change from white to yellow.

Actual Results:  
as above

Expected Results:  
On MSIE mozilla painted a blue rectangle making the menu buttons
continuously visible.

I think I have found other cases like this in the past.

I tend to delay reporting things to give others with more technical
knowledge a chance to submit more specific reports.

I don't know if this could be a site developer (mis)-using a
microsoft-specific feature that works only on IE.

I tried Opera. it also failed to display the blue rectangles, but
it displayed the links in blue and underlined them so that I could
see them anyway!

Just crappy CSS in

This is what they need to do:
1. remove all " characters
2. replace all = with :

Then the page will display correctly.

Thanks for comments.

I reported the comment to site owner who has agreed to make
changes, and also says:

|That's what comes from copying and modifying CSS files
|you find on the net!)
|And my thanx to mozilla team.
