User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a1) Gecko/20040520
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a1) Gecko/20040520

On the above website select 'Price Check' then on the next page the button
'check price' fails to do anything.
The same browse using Konqueror DOES work.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to www.speedferries.com
2.Select 'Price Check'
3.On this next page select 'check price'

Actual Results:  
Nothing happens, the hyperlink does not work, I have been reporting to
speedferries.com but now have found that if I use Konqueror the 'check price
button' does work.

Expected Results:  
I think that there may be a problem with relative v. absolute addressing on this
website, but, it does work if I use Konqueror on my linux box.

Although I still think that speedferries have been careless with the definitions
of their hyperlinks, the fact that Konqueror works is disturbing.
Are we somehow losing the temporary hyperlinks in Mozilla?

As I am using and promoting Mozilla I am concerned that there may be a flaw
which causes people to use the IE which is full of security flaws instead so it
is important to fix this quickly.

Confirming with Mozilla 1.7, I get some javascript errors on clicking the 'check
price' button:

Error: document.getElementById(asThis) has no properties

I'm reassigning the bug to the evangelism component.

INCOMPLETE due to lack of activity since the end of 2009.

If someone is willing to investigate the issues raised in this bug to determine whether they still exist, *and* work with the site in question to fix any existing issues, please feel free to re-open and assign to yourself.

Sorry for the bugspam; filter on "NO MORE PRE-2010 TE BUGS" to remove.
