JS: lightbox  tool doesn't work consistently, cross-browser

Last Modified: 2014-05-02
this site has used lightbox for MANY years, thru many versions.
at some point (not sure when), FF and opera and chrome stopped working consistently.
IE (amazingly) still does work!
Sometimes you can re launch the browser and it will work "for a while."

example URL:  http://rugsforyourhome.com/details.php?PID=8&mcnid=12&pxmid=102#main

to test:   hover over "thumbnail" in upper left.  the detailed closeup should pop up
as powered by the lightbox script.  

you can choose alternate products (scroll down and click on another "color" thumbnail)
and most of the time it does not work (except in IE for my trials)

i just upgraded to the latest script release and no improvement.
kudos to the developer for keeping this
script alive for SO MANY years!

does anyone have any suggestions?    experience?   (other script solutions?)
