As best I can tell, css :hover is resetting from true to false when I move the mouse across the edge between two elements that exist at a lower z level. I suspect that some kind of interaction between different positioning types is a factor. A major problem for pure CSS menus. This problem is new to FF4.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Goto http://www.mubulaw.com/
2.Hover over one of the "practice areas" or "about us" menus.
3.Move the mouse very slowly through the menu options and watch :hover cut out as you cross the edge between the elements beneath the menu. 
Actual Results:  
Menu vanishes abruptly despite hover.

Expected Results:  
Menu does not vanish until mouse is removed from menu.
