HTML map hotspots not working in Firefox

I have the attached code to generate hotspots in a map that will redirect to another page. ITt works fine on IE but does not seem to work on Firefox. It seems only a very small portion in the bottom of the image seems to work. Please help. thanks
<div style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 189px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 157px; " >  
                <img style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 4px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 4px; width: 500px; height: 280px;border:0px;"  src="/images/Sale.jpg" width="145" height="126" alt="ProductsOnSale" usemap="#mapProduct"   />
                <map name="ProductsOnSale" name = "mapProduct" id="mapProduct">           
                <area shape="rect" coords="15,125,145,280" href="/product.aspx?prd=9308222&s=1" alt="15 Sheet Capacity" />
                <area shape="rect" coords="136,125,260,280" href="/product.aspx?prd=9308206&s=1" alt="20 Sheet Capacity" />				    
			    <area shape="rect" coords="251,125,380,280" href="/product.aspx?prd=9308230&s=1" alt="25 Sheet Capacity" />			
			    <area shape="rect" coords="371,125,500,280" href="/product.aspx?prd=9308214&s=1" alt="65 Sheet Capacity" />	
			    </map>

Firefox is ignoring the non-standard attribute useMap on the href tag.  

Similar problem solved here:

Uses javascript to set the useMap attribute.

It seems to work if you specify the link path as href="./product.aspx?prd=9308222&s=1"
<div style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 189px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 157px; " >  
     <img style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 4px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 4px; width: 500px; height: 280px;border:0px;"  src="/images/Sale.jpg" width="145" height="126" alt="ProductsOnSale" usemap="#mapProduct"   />
     <map name="ProductsOnSale" name = "mapProduct" id="mapProduct">           
     <area shape="rect" coords="15,125,145,280" href="./product.aspx?prd=9308222&s=1" alt="15 Sheet Capacity" />
     <area shape="rect" coords="136,125,260,280" href="./product.aspx?prd=9308206&s=1" alt="20 Sheet Capacity" />				    
     <area shape="rect" coords="251,125,380,280" href="./product.aspx?prd=9308230&s=1" alt="25 Sheet Capacity" />			
     <area shape="rect" coords="371,125,500,280" href="./product.aspx?prd=9308214&s=1" alt="65 Sheet Capacity" />	
     </map>	
</div>

Maybe because you have two 'name' attributes when there should be only one.

<map name="ProductsOnSale" name = "mapProduct" id="mapProduct">

Ok, this works in Firefox but Only if the image is actually displayed.  Until I substituted an image in there, the hotspots didn't work.

It was working for me without the image. It showed the outline and when mousing over the different areas showed the proper path info.

Buggy behavior all depends on which version of Firefox you are running.
