It's not the fn org causing the trouble, as the errors from Firebug occurs on line 369.
It appears to be hundreds of the same duplicate error that firebug is showing. I'd guess that Firebug is generating that same error over and over again, once for every microformat on the page.

Here's a simplified view of the problem area.

<table><tr class="vcard">
    <div class="fn org">3D Realms Entertainment</div><br />
    <div class="adr">

    <div class="tel">



Firebug says the error occurs on the closing div for adr.
Testing show that the error occurs when the adr area is empty.
