NS_ERROR_FAILURE when other browsers work fine!

Javascript throws an NS_ERROR_FAILURE where other browsers do not. Example at the following site: http://slice.med.nyu.edu/cptac/dice/static/replicate.html if you click on any of the boxes at the top of the graph (e.g. the green square in the upper left part of the graph) -- the resulting divs open up with empty screens (i.e. no data, clicking on the screen icon in the resulting graphs yields a similar plot that does contain data).

The relevant error (there are currently others that do not appear to be relevant to the bug at hand) is: NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Failure on line 1675 of jquery.flot.js

OK, I see what you mean.
I do get a partially working graph if I click the screen button to open the image in a new tab.

In the interim, I had tried your suggestions: they didn't work.

Also, I replicated the bug on a brand new installation of Firefox on a Windows (7 I think) box. I don't get the error on Internet Explorer or Chrome for Windows, so this is a bona fide cross-platform Firefox weirdness!!!

I add an image of what I get (bug.png) and what I should get (correct.png) as well where to click to generate the problem (click_here.png)...

So, definitely a Firefox issue...

Did you try to click the screen button that show to the left of the close X that closes the pop-up on the first screenshot?

Sure, and I am aware that this generates a perfectly functional spectrum... I am unclear as to why in one context, pretty much the same code yields an NS_ERROR_FAILURE whereas in the context of a standalone window there is no error being thrown. Having said all that, we still have a situation where only Firefox throws an error... (This _is_ getting curiouser and curiouser :-)
