Ahh.  In which case, you should also see FAQ 1.32, and be aware that 
Dreamhost.com may well have made some localized modifications -- 
perhaps not as bad as cPanel, Plesk, or Apple, but still non-standard

Whose package were you using?  Do you know if they made any modifications?

I don't understand why Firefox, Opera, and all the other browsers you 
have used have acted in the same way, and why others don't seem to be 
having the same problems when using the same browsers.

But given this additional information, this most definitely seems to 
be a pure browser issue to me, and not a problem with Mailman.
