Page bleed through?

Try to follow me here, since this is confusing to explain.

We've all "moused over" a term or box and had an explanation or description pop up, right? OK.

Scenario: I am viewing a page on sports scores or other sports topics. Then I open a page on recipes for chicken.
The mouse lands on some random spot while I'm reading a recipe. I get a pop-up box on batting averages!

Best way to describe it is 'page bleed through'. Anyone else have this happen? Why does it happen? It's not a problem, just an irritation. And I'm curious.

Btw, the sports and recipes pages are arbitrary. It could be anything.

I dont know, but for this kind of stuff its always useful to actually inform your audience what operating system and browser you might be using.

You're Firefox is way out of date. It's up to version 6 now. Try updating it to see if it fixes the problem www.firefox.com...

No problem. Firefox switched over to a rapid release cycle a new version comes out about every two months now, and addons tend to break because of it. That's one down side to it.
