Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0.1

Sometimes, depending on the page I am visiting and which actions I perform, links don't work anymore until I scroll the page. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Visit http://www.netmovies.com.br/busca/Fringe.html
2.Open the movie description in a new tab
3.Go to parent tab and hover the mouse over any link

Actual Results:  
Links become deactivated until I scroll the page

Expected Results:  
Links should work

Although I can only reproduce this problem on the reported site, the reason I reported as a bug is because another user reported to me the same problem with a different site. I can reproduce the problem on Windows XP on another machine, both using Firefox 4. I also can reproduce the problem using clean user profiles.

I am also unable to reproduce this issue.

Can you verify it with a clean profile:
