User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.6) Gecko/2009020411 Firefox/3.0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.6) Gecko/2009020411 Firefox/3.0.6

When a link is crossing a line break, I can only click the part of the link before the line break.  The second part of the link is decorated right (underline and different color), but when I move the mouse over it, it stays the arrow and I can't click on it.  The part before the line break is clickable though.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open web page
2. adjust window width so that some links are crossing line breaks
3. try clicking on second part of such a link
Actual Results:  
cursor stays arrow (not pointing hand), nothing happens when I click.

Expected Results:  
cursor changes to hand, lets me click on link.

This does not happen to me on other pages, and it does not happen for a friend of mine on that page, also with firefox 3.0.6.
Can you give an example of a link that exhibits the behaviour? Is this Linux-only?

Which link on http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Ministerien-sehen-keinen-Grundrechtseingriff-bei-Kinderporno-Sperren--/meldung/133227 should I make wrap and try to click?  I tried a few that were wrapped at my current window size and they worked fine for me.

This is on Linux only.

Also, I don't think it has anything to do with wrapped links at all.  It turns out I can't click on the leftmost ~50 pixels of any of the links at
