Yeah, the site shows a really annoying behaviour. I think this is because you allow sites to move and resize existing windows. When I uncheck this option (in Windows this is Tools > Options > Content > Enable JavaScript > Advanced) I don't see it anymore.

www.paulwhite.org exhibits the same behavior.

This is a mass search for bugs that are in the Firefox General component, are UNCO, and have not been changed for 1000 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10, create a fresh profile, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/managing+profiles, and test again. If you still see the bug, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the resolution to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.
