I'm not sure who's the right owner for this sort of bug -- On the given CNET page, near the bottom of the page, there is a list of Linux distributions, each of which is a link to another story. In 4.61, I can click on those links and go to the story; in Mozilla, they aren't clickable and don't have mouseover feedback. Here is a sample of one of these links: <td valign=middle align=center><a href="/software/0-3721-7-1473264.html?st.cn.3721-7-1473249.subdir.3721-7-1473264"><font size="-1" face="Arial, Helvetica" color="#0000ff"><span style="color:#0000ff"><b>Caldera OpenLinux 2.3</b><br></span></font></a></td>
Adding joki -- maybe he knows who should own this.
I'll take this. Its probably a dupe of one I already have anyway but since I don't know how many frame targetting issues are hiding down there I'll keep it out for now.
Putting on the PDT+ radar.
Well I thought this was an issue with event handling in tables which I'd seen but apparently its not. The problem is that the span inside the link is forcing the anchor closed. This seems like its probably a parser problem. I'm adding a boiled down test case.
Given that this is just a residual style bug (which is fixed in my tree awaiting the tree to reopen post-dogfood), I suggest demoting this problem.

Why? It prevents anyone from using mozilla to read the interesting parts of this CNET story (and presumably other CNET articles as well) since the story is spread out among many pages and the links to successive parts of the story don't work at all. I was hoping to be able to use mozilla to read cnet, since its font sizes are much better than 4.61. :-)

may be related to 20557 and/or 20491
I don't think this is related to 20557 and/or 20491. Those are both some sort of table bug. This is just a span inside an "a" tag.
Fixed in my tree. I'm trying really hard to land this by this weekend.
