I've attempting to use the workaround submitted in FireFox 3.6 and haven't been able to disable the sample stylesheet definition that way (I've tried both the commented out workarounds).

If you need to remove/prevent a stylesheet from being applied, you can use .remove() on the ID reference to that stylesheet without needing to refer to .sheet at all. This would prevent the stylesheet from applying to any elements. (Bare in mind that in IE, I believe this may not function as it may need a page-refresh to display the change).

A test case I've run on Safari, Chrome and FireFox where this works would is available here:  http://jsfiddle.net/VzeBm/1/

If you're able to provide further information regarding this bug or how the desired behavior of a fix would work please feel free to submit a new ticket and we'll investigate further.
