If you go to the above website, in the navigation bar you will see a submenu of links. When the mouse moves over these links, you should see a green square appear. For one or two of the menu items it works, but not for the rest. This html works fine on other browsers such as internet explorer.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.move mouse over links of sub-menu
Actual Results:  
for some menu items, no green square to the left

Expected Results:  
a green square should appear when the mouse hovers over a sub-link

the onmouseover event triggers a call to a javascript function, which switches the css class of the underlying table cell, so that it changes appearance.
The page doesn't work nicely in Opera too, so I suspect it's a site issue and not a firefox issue.
This bug was originally reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.6 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME
