LinuxWorld irony: The LinuxWorld Website does not work properly on Linux!

Sorry for all the crossposting -- I just never know where the best place
to post stuff is, with all the near-duplicate newsgroups...
So I get RedHat's newsletter, "Under the Brim," in my inbox and it
mentions the LinuxWorld Expo in SF. Okay, I'd love to go, I'll check out
the website. Well, waddya know, the website's DHTML fly-out menus don't
work! They fly out, but I am not able to click on the links on the menus.
Clicking a link that has just "flown out" does *nothing*.
I am using Mozilla 1.4 on RHL9.
Mozilla Signature: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701
This is a link to the example page:
So I try Opera 7.11 and no problem, DHTML is working fine.
I guess this is a Mozilla problem, more than Linux, specifically, (thus
the mozilla ng crosspost), but since Mozilla is the default browser on
RedHat, it is, in essence, a RedHat distro problem. And probably Mandrake
or any other distro that uses Moz as the default browser.
After searching Bugzilla for a bit, I found bug number 102578:
It seems to be roughly the same problem I am having with the LinuxWorld
Why is this bug still in Mozilla??? It affects browseability on many
websites. The worst part is that it affects even standards-compliant
websites, as this is not a <layer> problem!
