I think, if this is true, than you should file a bugreport wth FireFox,
and please state the version number you're using....

Sorry, it might be dus to my English, but who/what is Cretins?

File a bugreport and please state the version (IE6)

As IE6 is very old, and probably the version of FireFox you are using
too, i suggest you do some updates.....
I tested with IE8/ Firefox3.5.1 / Opera9.64 / Chrome220.127.116.11
and i was not able to reproduce this in any of these browsers...
