A span with links displays as a pop-up when hovering over a parent anchor tag. But when a link is selected inside the span it fires the href from the parent anchor tag. Firefox displays the correct link when hovering over the anchor tag inside the span but when clicked it quickly displays the parent's anchor tag's href and links to it instead of the href in the anchor tag that's clicked.

This code works properly in IE 7 and IE 8 but not in Firefox (3.6.13):

<a href='/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabindex=5&tabid=6' class="OtherTabs">Admin&nbsp;
<span id="Span1" CssClass="OtherSubTabsBg"  >

<table id="Banner_tabs_submenu_5" class="OtherSubTabsBg" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse:collapse;">
<tr>
<td><ul></td>
</tr><tr>
<td style="border-width:1px;border-style:solid;height:25px;">
   <li>&nbsp;<a id="LinkUrl" href='/Pages/AppOption1.aspx' class="OtherSubTabs" target="_top">Codes</a>&nbsp;</li>
 </td>
</tr><tr>

<td></ul></td>
</tr>
</table></span></a>

(Please pardon the table tags. It's generated by MS .Net objects.)

Here are the relevant styles:

A.OtherTabs:link    
{
    position:relative;
    z-index:24;
    text-decoration:    none;
    color:#dddddd;
}

A.OtherTabs:visited {
    text-decoration:    none;
    color:#eeeeee;
}

A.OtherTabs:active  {
    text-decoration:    none;
    color:#eeeeee;
}

A.OtherTabs:hover, A.OtherSubTabs:hover
{
    z-index:25;
    text-decoration:    none;
    color:#ffffff;
}

A.OtherTabs span { display: none; }

A.OtherTabs:hover span
{
    display: block;
    position: absolute;
    text-decoration:    none;
    color:#eeeeee;
}

Any help would be appreciated
