Form submission works in Firefox... but not in I.E. Go figure.

40 New Member
Okay, I've got a tiny little form that works fine in Firefox, but I.E. won't let me push the button to file it. Here is the code:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <form method="post" action="/search_results.php">
  2. <table>
  3.   <tr>
  4.     <td valign="middle" class="gobutton">Search: <input type="text" name="srch" size="15"></td>
  5.     <td valign="top"><input type="image" value="Go" src="/Images/button_go_new.png" class="greensubmit"></td>
  6.   </tr>
  7. </table>
  8. </form>
Somehow this works in Firefox, but I.E. won't submit the form. The mouse pointer turns into a hand, indicating I'm about to push a button... but no matter how hard I pushed the left mouse button (and I've tried all different amounts of downward pressure) - nothing.

Anyone have a clue?

I could not see anything unexpected but remove value="go" and then try again. Image input takes the coordinates as values itself.

Hey all, I'm attempting to do some form processing on a server that has register_globals off, however, I've run into a confusing situation and need some help. Basically, the form is a multi-part/form-data form as I have it upload a file in addition to submit a number of other fields, but the error I have occurs even when no upload is done.

Hi I have an issue in some browsers when linking to style sheets or images in some browsers using a DOM script after I have submitted a form. I am trying to make the form submission process accessible to javascript disabled users, it was previously using an interstitial page. Now I want to hide the page content and replace it (visually) with the interstitial message while the user awaits their results (which could take up to 20seconds)....

Hi, I'd like to use a button to save and then submit a form. I can set the onlick of the button to mahButton_click or submit, but I can't figure out how to do both. It looks like c# can't call a form's submit. I've found how to post programatically, but I need to use the form's target attribute so that the response goes into another frame, and I can't figure out how to do that programatically.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
