When using a <FORM ... METHOD=POST>, data from the form is not passed to the next page. This has been confirmed with two seperate configurations I have running WIN32. I haven't yet tested it on the Linux build. Here's an example, which was run from IIS using ASP to print the passed variable: ... <FORM ACTION=test.cgi METHOD=POST> <INPUT TYPE=text NAME=test> <INPUT TYPE=submit> </FORM> ... TEST.CGI -------- <HTML> <BODY> VARIABLE PASSED IS <% =Request("test") %> </BODY> </HTML> The sample above works fine using IE and Netscape. Also worth noting, using METHOD=GET does pass the data correctly. Only the POST method seems to be affected.

POST form submission has been working for a while now. For example, Bugzilla uses it. Your example probably needs to be much more specific and easy to reproduce. However, I'm changing the component here to Form Submission anyway and reassigning, since that's where it goes. Also, you should say what build you're using. For all I know, you could be using the Gecko developer preview from a year ago. (And I'm not sure POST worked then...)
Sorry about that, I'm running the M10 release. To reproduce this bug, (under WIN32 build) navigate to ANY page that uses a <form> tag with the POST method. After submitting the form, the next page will not receive any data. However, to make it easier for you, I set up a specific test page that you can navigate to. The URL is http://www.enslain.com/bug1.htm By the way, POST does work under Linux. This seems to affect the WIN32 build only.
Reassigning to Eric.
Post has been fixed since M10. I'm betting this bug is fixed in recent builds. The ASP page for your test case is not working for me. I'll attach at test case of my own.

Yes, this works. Closing the bug out. You can try a nightly build if you would like to verify this for yourself. Thanks!
