Hey all,

I am not 100% sure if this is the correct place to go over this
one, but I ran into an interesting behavior with the
overflow:hidden; property in CSS. Basically, if there is a relatively
positioned element contained within another element that has it's
overflow set to hidden, the relatively positioned element will
be hidden from view, but you can still interact with it's hidden

For detailed samples, click here:

In Firefox, the element is not clickable outside the visible portion,
hence why I am wondering if it is a bug in Safari's implementation,
or if it is something for the Moz crowd to fix. Either way, I just
want to se if it is fixable, needs a big filed, or if I should address
it on my end.

Thanks for your time,
