#90 Invalid doctype

I believe the problem is that the page uses an invalid doctype. When confronted with an unknown doctype, mozilla now uses strict mode instead of quirks. The doctype used is !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//FR". I believe that HTML requires that the language be English. So the correct doctype is !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN". This does not mean that the content of the page is in English, just that the HTML markup is English. Hope this helps. Perhaps Mozilla needs to recognize this page as quirks mode.
