This is due to bad user-agent detection in the script from sublimemedia.net. The offending lines:

	if(navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Firefox")==-1 && navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Safari")==-1)
	{
		hookOnload(attachEventToObject);
	}else
	{
		hookOnload(attachEventToObjectFF);	
	}

"Firefox" should probably be changed to "Gecko" or something, though a capabilities-based rather than user-agent-based approach would be much better.

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