    Can someone help me in explaining why a link would work in IE7 but not in Firefox. The links work on all the other pages but not this one. The page is http://www.discoverysolutionsinc.com/index.php?left=new_nav&center=dataconnect . I don't normally create web pages but I did for an upcoming event. The link called "Agenda for Chicago" only works if you mouse over from the right side of the link but the other links all work. In IE7 the link works fine. I just don't see what I have set up incorrectly.

    Any guidence would be appreciated.

    Hi Chuck,
    I am also using 3.6.13 on two different pc's. If I mouse over from above the link, the mouse pointer does not turn into a hand, or work. If I mouse over from the right side of the link it does. Difficult to fix when we can't replicate.

    Correction Chuck, mouse over from the top and move over the "Age" in agenda. The issue should be visible.

    Still don't see it. Cursor changes from an I-Beam to a pointing finger as I come over the center of the text from the top and does not change when I go to the left over "Age". The message bar does not show any changes in the link target information once the cursor enters the text area from any direction and moves left to right across the area.

    Are you getting a "No link" condition where the cursor reverts to a different icon or does it still show as a link but does nothing?

    Do you have any kind of cursor location sensitive add-ons?

    I will send the link off to some others and have them check it. I have Skype that highlights phone numbers but no other add-ons to Firefox that I'm aware of. I see on both my computers that when I come from the top of the page down to "Age"enda the mouse does not change. I appreciate your help but maybe this really is not broken. I'll send to several other outside the company and see if it works for them.
