In the page at , the first links
under "Headline News" are not clickable.  I can however click on them when using
Internet Explorer 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158.  I have the latest
version of macromedia flash player installed on both browersers.  I have had
this problem with Firefox 1.0PR through the current build I'm running now.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the web page
2.Try to click on any of the first links under "Headline News"
3.None of the links are clickable till you scroll down furter and then the links
start to be clickable.

Actual Results:  
No little hand appeared, which indicates a link is clickable, on the first links
under "Headline News".

Expected Results:  
A little hand should have appeared, and the first links under "Headline News"
should have been clickable.

I'm using a typical installation of firefox, with default settings on a Windows
XP service pack 2 PC.

That's due to

<div style="position: absolute; z-index: 10; border: 0px solid black; width:
1003px; height: 690px; text-align: left;">

The behavior being observed is technically correct: the div is transparent, but
above the links.  (Bug 102695 is about this sort of thing.)

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
