There is a text list on the front page about news snippets. When mouse is over
an item on the list, more detail should be written in a box above the list (as
in IE). But instead, I get a new window to display the detail text. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. goto www.kibrisgazetesi.com
2. hover on the news snippets (turkish)
3. you will get a new page displaying a line of text

Actual Results:  
new page displays the detail text.

Expected Results:  
detail text should be on the same page as the link hovered. On the main page.

Improper browser detection. The Javascript function MM_setTextOfLayer() just
checks navigator.appName, assumes Firefox is a non-compliant version of Netscape
and executes Javascript accordingly. If I change the User-Agent strings to IE6,
the text appears in the div as expected.

Looks like not a bug.
