Mozilla 0.9.8 seems to be unable to handle multiple forms in a single HTML page. I've got a perl script generating a page with a bunch of forms like this: <form method=post action="foo.pl"> <input name=button value="change" type=submit> <input name=button value="remove" type=submit> <input type=hidden name="foo_id" value="$some_id"> <input type=hidden name="sequence_nr" value="$some_seq_nr"> </form> Mozilla always submits the same foo_id value for every change or submit button I press. Netscape 4.77, with which I tested the HTML a while back, does handle it.
reporter: mozilla has a problem with missing </form> tags. this is a known bug. is this the case here?
No, I think... I checked the HTML, and I now notice that I put a form inside a form. Ok, actually a table with forms inside a form. This is clearly not what I intended, but I'm not sure if this triggers the form bug you mention. All forms (both the "inner" and "outer") are properly closed.
well is kind of the same problem, for the parser creates internaly only one form. this is a dup. as soon as i find the original bug report i will mark it as a dup.
Ok. And just checking: mozilla does support more than one form in a HTML page?
if the forms are well formed mozilla supports multiple forms wellformed means the forms are not allowed to be nested: <form ...> ... <form ...> ... </form> ... </form> and </form> tags are not allowed to be missing <form ...> ... <form ...> ... </form> Both examples are just wrong markup, however other browsers accept the second one since it can be corrected.
