That's a bug in FireFox. If you click with your scroll wheel (press down on it) on top of of the gray boxes, they should disappear. Or at least they did for me in FireFox 1.0.

You can also try a different browser if you have major problems.

Same solution as the "grey boxes" one I listed before. Scroll-wheel-clicking on a DIV causes FireFox to re-render it. That should fix it.

Nope, doesent work.. the gray boxes arent part of the site...

They are kind of like an individual overlay...

I cant scrollclick them...


Nor click them any other way...



Whats new in this issue? All the other issues have worked.. atleast what I've seen...

Oh well, guess I'll just use IE =)



It's a great issue =)
