I tried it with FF 1.0.6 with no javascript and got a blank page.   I 
hate it when people use javascript redirects...  anyway when manually 
loaded the URL of the actual site I couldn't get it to disappear, but 
was pleasantly surprised to see that dropdown menus worked for me with 
javascript off.
