So this is my bug with firefox.

I have a results page (results on rows) and on every row there is a checkbox. I
have build two buttons "Check All" and "Uncheck all". Their purpose is obvious.
They must select every checkbox (one checkbox per row).

Problem 1: This is not very bad. I don't know who is guilty on this problem
firefox, or the other browsers. "document.getElementById" does not return a
value unless an ID for the tag is specified. The other browsers (opera, ie)
return a value only with NAME in the tag. So I don't know who is responsable for
this, Opera/IE for letting the user using getElementById in the wrong way or
Firefox for not offering support for NAME and only for ID (ex. <input
type=checkbox ID="aaa">)

Problem 2: This is what boders me. When i hit "Check all" in a non iframe page
everything works smoothly. But when the page that contains the checkboxes is
placed inside an IFRMAE in another page the "Check all" does not work. Only when
I hit submit in the iframed paged the "Check all" begins to work. My guess is
that when I submit the ifrmaed page becomes active and my script
document.getElementById('checkbox_inbox_'+i) is returning a value. In other
browsers this is working.  If this is my mistake I apologize for the post, but
this is problem is only with Firefox. So what I want is that when I press a
button inside an IFRAME the document as I am refering from the IFRAME is the
ifrmae itself not the main page that is opened in Firefox.

Thank you,

upload the page so we can look
document.getElementById('id').value refers to an ID, not a name.
IE and Opera accept the name too, but that is simply wrong.

If you want to call the content of the iframe from the body of the page use:
