Actually your original error doesn't occur for me, but I notice a
considerable difference in viewing the page via SeaMonkey (Mozilla
version) vs Fx3.0.3. In Fx the "?" Quote and Chart section is nearly
covered by the Home News Market Data etc section. In SeaMonkey (1.1.12)
the entire page renders correctly.

It's not a Flash issue as turning off Flash results in the same - ditto
for Java & javascript. Mine appears to be an Fx issue; specifically a
3.0.3 issue as the page renders just find in Fx2.0.0.14.
