Help with Jquery image rotator

On the right side of my page I have an image rotator: http://triadtestsite.com/triadinc/index.php

When the page first loads, the first time the rotator changes pictures, the background image doesn't go away. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong here?

My Javascript code is attached.

function theRotator() {
	//Set the opacity of all images to 0
	$('div#rotator ul li').css({opacity: 0.0});
	//Get the first image and display it (gets set to full opacity)
	$('div#rotator ul li:first').css({opacity: 1.0});
	//Call the rotator function to run the slideshow, 6000 = change to next image after 6 seconds

function rotate() {	
	//Get the first image
	var current = ($('div#rotator ul li.show')?  $('div#rotator ul li.show') : $('div#rotator ul li:first'));

	//Get next image, when it reaches the end, rotate it back to the first image
	var next = ((current.next().length) ? ((current.next().hasClass('show')) ? $('div#rotator ul li:first') :current.next()) : $('div#rotator ul li:first'));	
	//Set the fade in effect for the next image, the show class has higher z-index
	next.css({opacity: 0.0})
	.animate({opacity: 1.0}, 1000);

	//Hide the current image
	current.animate({opacity: 0.0}, 1000)

$(document).ready(function() {		
	//Load the slideshow

I'm not seeing what you mean.

In Firefox 7 it looks fine.  In IE8 I see a blue border.  Is that the background you mean?
