I'm having issues with a Javascript for flipping pictures on my front page of the website.

The site looks fine in Mozilla Firefox but no in IE, Chrome or Opera etc... site is here www.nordisk-solvarme.se

The error code I get in IE:

Message: 'undefined' is null or not an object
Line: 12
Char: 388
Code: 0
URI: http://www.nordisk-solvarme.se/js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js

Oh my, the code is compressed.
The error is in the plugin code. It is caused because in some part of the code (which is hard to tell, because the code is completely unreadable when compressed) it tries to get string value from attribute 'title' of some image (var name g.currentImage). The atribute is undefined, but it passes the safety check because it checks only for empty string for some reason.
I suggest you use some other plugin, or write the author of the plugin about the bug. Maybe he/she'll fix it.

First, you have <div id="box"> and <div id="box_inner"> defined three times.  'id's are only supposed to be used once on a page, especially when your javascript has to use the 'id' to locate an object or element.  The error message refers to a element attribute and even Firefox complains about some of your CSS.
