Overlapping divs in Firefox until refresh


I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem before.

Every now and then a div on my page will overlap with another. Thi
only happens in firefox (vs. IE and Safari) and it corrects itself whe
you refresh the page.

Has anyone run into this before? Thanks

could it be that firefox is not perfect, or is this inconceivable ??

Well I'd just like to know if it's something I can fix or not. If it's
bug in firefox that can't be fixed, then I could tell my boss "hey, thi
can't be fixed" instead of working on it for such a long time

Without a URL it's impossible to say what the cause or solution, if
there is one, might be.

I doubt the bug is in Firefox. So far, 95% of all the CSS glitches I have
found between IE and FF, it turned out to be that IE was the buggy one.

The problem still remains one where 90% of the market is using a
buggy, non-compliant browser but they don't know that it's a buggy,
non-compliant browser because there wasn't a non-buggy, compliant
competitor out there for many years when the buggy, non-compliant
browser had 98% of the market.

I've now taken to testing my designs first in Firefox and then doing
whatever I need to do to make them look/work the same in IE. Traffic
to one of my client web sites has, since November, gone from 97% IE to
57% IE : 38% Firefox useage.

Unfortunately I can't show you the URL - it's on a dev server and stil
hasn't been officially announced. As for the IE vs. FF discussion tha
seems to have arisen, I have no doubt that there is something in m
code causing the overlapping, I just wanted to know if anyone else ha
experienced it so I know where to start looking. Thanks for the insigh
anyway. :cool

My point was that if it works in FF but not IE, then the greater chance is
that it is an IE bug, and you will have to find a work around for it. IE
treats things like borders wrong.

I have the problem on a page that is valid xhtml strict.
I just assumed that firefox was not perfect as the page works fine when held
in the browser cache.
Sorry, I don't have a fix,
