Problem with CSS menu & unwanted dashed box around selected links in FF

Hi...  The menu (see code) works for whichever link is clicked for just the first time.  It dies not work for any subsequent link clicked; i.e., the second link is unresponsive "dead'.  What am I missing here?

The menu is a pure css horizontal menu and it can be seen in action (or non action) at www.renaissanceseniorinvestments.com.  

An unrelated question; how can I get id of the dashed boxes around selected links in FF?

HTML:

<div id="navigation">
                        <ul id="navlist">
                              <li><a href="contact.htm">Contact</a></li>
                              <li><a href="rsc.htm">RSC</a></li>
                              <li><a href="partners.htm">Partners</a></li>
                              <li><a href="success-stories.htm">Success Stories</a></li>
                              <li><a href="5-key-points.htm">5-Key Points</a></li>
                              <li><a href="index.htm">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

CSS:


#navigation {
      display: block;
      position: absolute;
      z-index: 50;
      top: 195px;
      left: 0px;
      width: 880px;
      height: 30px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      background-color: #5F6565;
}

#navigation ul {
      list-style: none;            
      padding-right: 95px;
      margin-left: 0;
      float: right;
      width: 100%;
}

#navigation ul li {
      display: inline;
}

#navigation ul li a {
      padding-right: 40px;
      text-decoration: none;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      float: right;
}

#navigation ul li a:hover {
      color: #C2C2C2;
      text-decoration: none;
}

Are you trying to select the same option again while it is selected already?
It works for me if you select the different link from what is already selected.

QPR:  Thanks for the tip it worked perfectly.

 I see that I didn't give the entire link.  It should be  www.renaissanceseniorinvestments.com/beta.  Sorry about that and no I'm not trying the same link again.  Thanks for your help on this.

                              <li><a href="index.htm">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

becomes

                  <div id="navigation">
                        <ul id="navlist">
                              <li id="active"><a href="#" id="current">Contact</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">RSC</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Partners</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Success-Stories</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">5-Key-Points</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

after clicking one of the links
Doesn't the page contact.htm (for example) reside somewhere else ?
