That's not an FF bug, it's a styling bug.  That line has class="XXX", which
gives it a bit of padding, a fat red border, and 1em of margin on top and
bottom.  However, inline elements ignore margins, so the border just
overlaps the surrounding line boxes instead.  Ian should change his styling
to make sure that any element which receives classes "XXX" or "big-issue"
are display: block.
