I have done a bunch of research on this and it appears that the problem of seeing a space between rows in a table is common in FireFox.  I had 3 spaces appearing at one time and was able to successfully fix two of them with the style="display:block;" style, but I can't get the last one fixed.

I have three rows with images in them.  The first row has one image that is 800 pixels wide (as wide as the table it's in).  The third row also has one image that is 800 pixels wide.  Those two were easy to fix.  The second row, however, has 10 images side by side in it that make up 800 pixels all together.  I tried to put the display:block style in all 10 images, but it went crazy on me and threw everything out of whack.
I also tried to insert a <br> in between the second and third line within the same cell to see if that helped and it still wouldn't work.  That's where it boggled my beginner brain.

The code is simple and is attached below.  
<tr><td width="800" valign="top" colspan="3"><map name="FPMap1"><area href="index.asp" shape="polygon" coords="36, 10, 4, 61, 28, 97, 25, 123, 18, 148, 24, 178, 44, 206, 83, 219, 122, 214, 151, 224, 161, 207, 221, 180, 241, 149, 238, 112, 222, 86, 206, 64, 206, 34, 212, 14, 188, 0, 96, 1, 74, 13, 54, 13"></map><img border="0" src="site_proof66_01_top.jpg" width="800" height="229" usemap="#FPMap1" style="display:block;"></td></tr>
