User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113

Given the URL and selecting one of any number of keyboard layouts, IE6 displays
the layout in a separate window (after a brief loading period).  The new window
is also interactive.  Accessing the same URL with Moz 1.6, and choosing any one
keyboard, a new window appears, but it never completes loading.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the URL referenced above.
2. Select a keyboard, say German.
3. A new windows appears labeled German Keyboard Layout.

Actual Results:  
One sees the message "Loading the keyboard layout, please wait..." within the
window, but the loading hangs and never completes.

Expected Results:  
The interactive keyboard layout should appear as it does in IE6.
For the record, JavaScripts is enabled and www.microsoft.com was added to the
Allowed Sites for Popup Windows under Edit > Preferences > Privacy & Security.
Error: document.all has no properties

So the problem is that the site is carefully coded to only work in browsers that
support the IE-proprietary document.all property.
