Dotted Border Around Link Images

Only in FF? How to disable

Im noticing that Firefox puts an annoying little border around the image buttons on my nav. Only seems to happen in Firefox. My page is set up so the main content is an iframe loaded by each nav button. Does that have something to do with it? Since the whole page doesnt refresh? Is there a way to disable this?

The active state of a link will have a dotted outline by default in Firefox. It can be disabled using CSS, but I'd like to caution you that doing so is against accessibility rules (try navigating with a keyboard if you cannot spot what link you'll "click" on).

To disable it add this to your CSS:

a:active {
