Hiding layer + form button + Firefox = bug!

 8:26 pm on Mar 7, 2005 (gmt 0)

I have encountered a bizarre bug with Firefox 1.0

I have a form that has a part near the bottom that disappears (hides a div via javascript + css) if you choose a certain radio button on the form.

When I click on that radio button, thus hiding the div, and then click on the "submit" button, nothing happens at all. It's as if Firefox has "forgotten" where the button is. If I click on the button again, the form is submitted. In fact, if I do anything at all on the window, such as scroll a tiny bit, then I can submit right away, as if then, Firefox "knows" where that button is.

Anyone encountered this before?

That is a strange one - no I haven't run into it before. Does the form submit work fine on other browsers? And is it a regular HTML form submit, or a javascript "onclick" submission?

No, it's a normal form submit. See the solution here:
