BuildID:    2001050515

On the left side of the Johns Hopkins University front page you'll see 11
numbered links.  If you run your cursur over and along them you will see the
links disappear as your cursur goes over it.  They just disappear and the
background is there.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to site.  Wait for the entire site to load.
2.When the page is complete point your cursur over the links in a browsing manner

Actual Results:  Links disappear

Expected Results:  The opposite of what happened

Not too many Hopkins people on the mozilla project, eh?
Works for me. 2001-05-12-08, Win NT.

You kinda have to do it for a little bit.  Go up and down.  A quick rushing over
and then done with it won't work. After a lap or two (a little patience is
necessary but you'll see how bad it is after the first time) you'll see some
results.  Do it slowly from top to bottom then speed it up.  I don't know its
quirky.  It is a bug after all.  Just play with the speed and do it multiple
times.  You're nearly guaranteed to observe it.
Are you using a later build?
I'm using 0.9

Correction: above screenshot shows 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, and 11
Notice 9 is missing.

A good way to reproduce is when the page is loading, you will see the shadow
outline boxes of the text on the left hand side.
Run your cursur over these "shadow boxes" they will disappear as you do this.

I see this behavious in a lot of sites! I get the same effect when I mouse over
the four tabs across the top in
The tabs are supposed to change colour. If I have seen this page and moused over
before then when I come back it works. The first time I go to this page and
mouse over the tabs they often disappear.

Thought I have seen this type of problem before, I can't seem to reproduce in the 
May 21 Mozilla build (2001052108).
