Hi.

I have created a form, well several, they work in IE and Opera just fine, but not in FF or Navigator. In IE and Opera I can fill out the boxes in the Form and Submit, everything shows in the email. In FF and Navigator for some reason I'm unable to click in the boxes and fill them out. Is there some code for FF and Navigator that I'm unaware of that needs to be placed into a form? Below is a couple of examples of what is written for some of the boxes. They are all pretty much written the same, if you need more info please ask. All help is appreciated. Thank you.


<tr>
<td width="25%">First Name</td>
<td width="75%"><input type="text" name="firstname" size="40"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="25%">Last Name</td>
<td width="75%"><input type="text" name="lastname" size="40"></td>
</tr>



All Radio Buttons, Drop Down Boxes, and Check Boxes work just fine in all the browsers I've tested them in. The only issue I'm having is getting the Text Boxes, and Text Areas to work in FF and Navigator.

Thanks again!

Aside from the use of tables (ugh-LOL), I take it you have the form tags added. :) Threw this in my editor and it seems to work ok for me after dragging/dropping file into FF.

Major Payne! I've looked for you, but you must not be around lately, or at least where I've looked! Ha-ha!

Well, I wrote about this issue on Webdeveloper, too. One response stated the same as you, they've had no problem, another respose gave an example that I tried, but I still had the same issue. It must just be me! :)

Well, anyway, I tried the page on two different computers with FF, thinking that maybe there is something wrong with my browser on the first, but unfortunately I'm still having the same issue.

I would check the rest of the code to make sure that all tags are properly inserted, started and closed, and that your HTML meets W3C standards. FF & Navigator are going to look at the code MUCH more scrutinizingly than IE and Opera has it's own set of issues.

The problem may not so much lie in the specific area of code you presented, but in the entire code structure itself.

KandiLyons,

I would have to partially agree with thenotch on this one. Maybe you could upload your source so that we could take a look at it.

Opera might be working fine if the DOCTYPE switch is not included in the HTML file. Although I wouldn't see why it working fine in Opera would mean there is a problem with the browser.

See the following link for more information about the DOCTYPE switch, including links to IE and Firefox DOCTYPE documentation:
The Opera 9 DOCTYPE Switches

You can determine what mode Firefox is using for the current page by entering the following script into the address bar of the browser:
javascript:alert(document.compatMode);

It should pop up either "BackCompat" (Quirks Mode) or "CSS1Compat" (Standards Mode) in Firefox.

Problem was in the no right-script on the pages. Turning off JS in the browsers allowed it to work. Script will be removed from all pages since it is not that effective anyway.

Yes, Major Payne is correct.

We discovered that I had a No Right Click JavaScript on my page that I had forgotten to remove. This script didn't affect Opera or IE, but it did affect FF and Navigator.

Thank you guys, for all of your help!

Ax238.....thank you for the link. I'm going to go have a look.
