Here's the IRC discussion about it.

	<mGiff>	CrazyFred could you check it in mozilla to verify that it is working
for you there..  Anyone have an earlier release of firefox about..
	<mGiff>	madduck - sorry..  Missed ya there..  :)  - Ok..  so why does it work
for you and nobody else..
	<madduck>	mGiff: yes. works fine in 0.9.3
	<madduck>	mGiff: cuz I run Debian? :)

	<firebot>	New Firefox bug 264347 filed by
	<mGiff>	madduck - just that if it only works for firefox users who are using
debian, it's a bit of an uphill struggle..  and thanks for the others..  I

otherwise great browser if you can't get it to work in the main product that we

If there's anything we need to do to adjust the code on the CMS we can do that
easily..  Just don't have any sense on where to begin.

There are these two javascript errors..  But it works everwhere else..

Rather than using 
with only works in IE, use
Which is the standards way.

thanks will implement a standards compliant version..  Still odd that firefox
1PR acts differently than all the rest though..

FF follows the rules and uses javascript (not M$-jscript).
Opera is compatible with a lot of IE-only script
IE, offcourse works, it's their script ;-)

It isn't just opera, and IE where the script worked..  I've updated it now, but
even before then it worked in mozilla, galeon, lynx and if you follow the irc
thread a bunch of other browsers too.

But better to just make the javascript conform to standards...

Ok..  The javascript now conforms to the standard and uses getElementById..  But
it still won't log in in Firefox 1.0PR even though it works everywhere else..

I'm about to make another release of this GPL project and would really like to
say it works with Firefox..  But so far that isn't the case..  

Have any other suggestions..  The javascript console is coming up clean on this

Strangely it does allow me to login/out on my localhost..
