I confirm this, and also note that the Java security error is thrown
with Internet Explorer as well.
Josh, you will have to test this yourself. I can reproduce it on my own
page reproduction of your page, but for the life of me, I can't figure
out what aspect of that page is malfunctioning. What I know:
It is not your server. My page fails with copies of your files on my site.
It is not isolated to Firefox -- I haven't seen MSIE crash, but I've
seen it throw the security error when reading the cache. I presume from
that that it is a Java issue.
It's not the huge menus. Without those the same error occurs.
At first I thought it might be that first line in your file <!--
cache.....>, because when I took that out it seemed to work. But then I
put it back in, and it still worked, so I'm confused there.
I believe this is something unique to your page, but I can't put my
finger on it.
Good luck sorting this out.
