Help, bizzare Mozilla absolute position <div> problem

In the web site http://greywolfdesign.com , there is a pop-up menu (when
mouse over 'Portfolio' menu item), it always works well when using IE (6).

However, when using Mozilla 1.6, the popup works well for all the pages
except the 4 pages which can be opened by click the menu link in the
popup. In these four pages, the popup will always be shown at the
leftmost of its parent div (flow) instead of under the 'Portfolio' menu

When tracing the javascript code, I found the the ....style.left and
....style.top cannot be set a value, and it causes the problem. However,
for all other pages, the values can be set.

36 function showPopup(id, menuid) {
37 clearTimeout(mTimeout[id]);
38 var loc = getElementPosition(menuid);
39 var popup = document.getElementById(id);
40 popup.style.position = "absolute";
41 //
42 popup.style.top = loc.top + 15;
43 //
44 popup.style.left = loc.left;
45 //
46 popup.style.display = 'block';
47 }

That's the statements 42, 44 don't work in the problem four pages, but
they work for all other pages. The differents is the four pages may have
a few dreamweaver created javascript routines....

Or can it be a bug of Mozilla?
