Page.Form.DefaultButton 'bug' in Firefox

P: n/a
i say "bug" in quotes because i can't really blame microsoft for a
feature not working in a non-microsoft browser. However, i would have
preferred if they did some better browser testing!

if i press return or enter inside a multiline textbox in firefox, with
Page.Form.DefaultButton set, the form is submitted. validation will
usually prevent an incomplete form being submitted anyway, but the user
may intend to fill in optional fields, only to find that the form
submitted itself incorrectly.

in internet explorer, pressing return just inserts a blank line into
the textbox as expected. this is a potentially serious problem for
some web applications. is there an explanation or work-around?

thanks
tim
