This site has a login window that is a modal dialog type, activated onclick with Javascript. When I click on the "Sign In" link at top right, it opens the window for ~.3 sec and then closes it.  This happens every time in all versions of Linux Firefox 3.5+ (tested with dailies since beta, through current 3.6 daily).

It works just fine in Linux Firefox 3.0.x, also works in Windows Firefox 3.5.2. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to in Linux Firefox 3.5+
2. Click "Sign In"

Actual Results:  
Observe modal dialog appear, then quickly disappear

Expected Results:  
The dialog should stay open for one to log in.

Only occurs in Linux versions of Firefox. I have not found a work around.
