User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 When trying option "other" in a multiple-choice style of form, Firefox is unable to click in the field to type and enter text. The flashing text line appears for a split-second, then disappears, and the focus is back on the dot to the left of "other". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Browse to https://survey.vt.edu/survey/entry.jsp?id=1081428861317 2. Click the dot to the left of "other". 3. Attempt to click the field to the right of "other". Actual Results: Firefox is unable to keep the focus on the text field to type into. Expected Results: It works with IE, but not with Netscape.
The markup in question boils down to <input type="radio" id="a"><label for="a">other: <input type="text"></label>, which makes not only the text "other:" but also the text input into the label for the radio button, and when you click a label, it transfers the focus to the element that it is "for". Move the </label> ahead of the text input, and it works.
