Cannot click on link in Firefox but can in IE
I cannot click on a link in Firefox, but I can in IE. The website is: http://www.dailydealhunt.com/more-deals/huntresults.php?city=Boston&submit=Pull+the+Trigger++
The link I'm trying to click is the "Buy Now" image
Every time Firefox opened
== The first time I opened the site

It is due to coding on the page not complying with web standards. The "Buy now" image link also does not work with the Chrome browser.
It works with IE...
What does this mean "page not complying with web standards"?
For a description of web standards see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_standards
Microsoft, through Internet Explorer, have introduced many additions to the standards. Those additions are frequently not supported in other browsers. This means that web sites can be written with code that works in Internet Explorer but will not work in other browsers.
On the other hand, Firefox has been built to comply with web standards, so some sites will not work in Firefox if they are poorly written.
The daily deal hunt site does not follow web standards and has some code that does not work in a browser such as Firefox or Chrome. This will be something that the owners of the site will need to fix if they want their site to work in all browsers.
Thanks a bunch for the education!...now I get it :)
