In firefox if you have a div with an input element inside of it and use the $().hover event on the div, then firefox will report an uncaught exception.

uncaught exception: Permission denied to get property HTMLDivElement.parentNode

In the hover method please change this line:

while ( p && p != this ) try { p = p.parentNode } catch(e) { p = null; };

to this:

while ( p && p != this ) try { p = p.parentNode } catch(e) { p = this; };

This solves a problem just brought up on the mailing list.
