Tried to book a room at
http://www.choicehotels.com/ires/en-US/html/HotelInfoServices?hotel=KY083&sid=BEA5.aUXVggpQ1g.6
Received available rooms at prices in the 80's but when I attempted to book, I
ended up with none available.  Ran the same data through MSIE, got higher rates
and booked.  Can provide screen snapshots.  Data - Oct 14 & 15, King bed,
Smoking, 50+ Mature Traveler.  I've duplicated the problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.URL
http://www.choicehotels.com/ires/en-US/html/HotelInfoServices?hotel=KY083&sid=BEA5.aUXVggpQ1g.6
and use Oct 14 & 15, King bed, Smoking, 50+ Mature Traveler.
2.http://www.choicehotels.com/ires/en-US/html/Availability?sid=fjGp.IxPVggZJ7g.5
and you get low rate rooms available.  Click one of those and you'll go to 
3.http://www.choicehotels.com/ires/en-US/html/Availability?sid=fjGp.IxPVggZJ7g.5
and sometimes it will ask you to fill out the form w/name & Card info, while
other times it will tell you none-avail

Actual Results:  
The results varied according to wheather I repeated the process without closing
FireFox, or closed firefox and then retried.  No matter, I could never book at
the quoted price.  I blew off once, and got a non available for the 50+ rate.

Expected Results:  
Same request (yes, I double checked) with MSIE gave me initial higher rates but
was not only available but allowed me to book and gave me a confirmation number.
 I love FireFox but this one is a bit of a puzzle.

Web Site results problem....

The problematic part of the page is gone.

If there's not more information, this must've been a caching issue.
