It's not a version error, not from what I know anyway. The latest version (1.0.6) has the same problem described. It's not really a problem, it's only a problem if you want it to be. It doesn't effect my browsing of this forum at all really, but others would probably disagree with me.
Also, Benny's right. This forum loads up a LOT quicker then the older one. Don't have to wait so long to see those topics you really wanna know about anymore :P
Personally, I like Firefox due to the fact that I.E. has wayyy too many security vulnerabilities, and of course, it has the tabbed browsing feature. I hear that the new Internet Explorer (version 7) will also feature tabbed browsing. Damn copycats.
I have switched back to Safari which works without problems. I just tried Firefox 1.0.6 and the text highlighting still happens. That is not a problem so much as the fact that the water-TT moves up and down the page as you scroll, leaving remnants of itself obscuring text on the left. Running your mouse over that text brings it back over the picture again but it is all pretty irritating. The improved Safar (v2.0 vuild 412.2.2)i is as fast as Firefox now and has all its other features.
I think, like Vinh says, the text highlighting is not a big deal. The watermark problem, given no-one else has reported it, I presume to be Mac-specific in FF and we have an easy alternative in Safari, whereas switching from FF to IE is a loss of function in XP. So, I would see if there are complaints and if not then hope that some other change to the skin equally mysteriously fixes it
