The parent page has the id="copy" div positioned over that content, so clicks end up targeting that div.  (In my case it overlaps the <select> but not the radio buttons, but that depends on the font size you have set; I would fully expect any observed differences from 3.6 to be due to font-size differences.)

I see the same behavior in 3.6 (on Mac).

IE has some weird behavior around transparent divs and events, which is why it works there.

Fundamentally, this is a bug in the page: the div with id="first" is floated left, has a fixed height, contains the iframe, and is too short for its content, so the iframe overflows.  Then the iframe ends up under the next left float (which is the id="copy" div.

This web site is bogus also on Safari and Firefox recent versions.
It proposes also to download a php file.

Though I'm not sure there is anything to fix. The Web site doesn't seem really operational. Or more exactly it seems to be an Ad honey pot.
