What's wrong with this code?

    Look at the main page at this site:
    http://www.celebrityseats.com/

    If you go down to the Sports Tickets section, you'll see the word "Sports Tickets" in blue. For some reason, recently it stopped becoming clickable, along with a few of the other links in the follow 2 paragraphs. I've been checking the code for the past hour and can't make any sense of it.
    SEMrush
    It seems if I remove some random text/code from the paragraph above it, it'll start working again. Is there some sort of limit to the number of links IE can handle?

    Is this even happening to anyone else, or is my computer just posessed?

    I am not a coder but your search boxes above and below the link in question are not working either that may be screwing with your link code. Code for the link looks good to me.

    I take it you're a Firefox user? That's a problem into itself that I'm trying to fix.. I've noticed this happening randomly on other pages on my site as well (which don't have the search box), but if I run my mouse over the spot enough times, it eventually becomes clickable. So that's really got me stumped.

    Hope one of the coders here will check it out for you. I know how you feel. I spend way to much time trying to figure out code but that is how I learn it.

    always try to validate your code if you run into problems.

    but then again, that doesn't always fix things!

    from what i can tell, you're using absolute positioning for the nav bar on the left. what's happening is that absolute div is using up 100% width (as default), and is covering up the content under it. basically this makes it unselectable/unclickable/etc. you'll need to specify a width to fix it, so add width:200px to your linkList id and it should be right.
