Why does the IE version fo Google Video have menus at the top and the firefox version doesn't? Is this new?

(I'm talking about the Top 100 | Comedy | Music videos | Movies | etc...)

It's not new
and I absolutely don't know why it don't work on Firefox
>>> maybe because the menu collapsed is hidden by Flash video (Z-index issue).

Since May, 16th : ...

Strange. I use FF and have all the buttons (8 of them) right below the search box. All of them work. Or, am I mis-reading the issue?

Tom> It can't be becuase they are hidden, becuase it doesn't work on the front page. Besides the little menu arrows aren't even there. I think it will come to firefox soon though.

Sunil> In IE these 8 buttons also act as menu. When you hove over them a drop down menu appears.

Dumb. Dumb. Dumb.

If I mask Opera 9 as IE, it works perfectly. If I look in the code, the menu should work on:
   * firefox 1.0 (win,mac,linux)
   * MSIE 6.0
   * Safari 2.0

The front page is different for both IE and Firefox.
The code for IE has "onmouseover" but not for Firefox.

*Can't post the code here, go check it out yourself.*
