The DHTML of wsj.com is broken in any Gecko browser other than Netscape 6 because of a bad user agent check in this file: http://online.wsj.com/navigation.js They check navigator.userAgent for "Netscape6"... totally bogus way to check for Gecko... moreover, their IE branch should work just fine with Gecko... it uses offsetParent/Left/Top, but we support that.
Note that Netscape 7 doesn't work, so this is important.
I will contact them. Once you log in can you get to the major sections which you currently can't access? Like if you click Technology can you get to the Commerce section once you log in?
