I'm using VBScript to validate a form and submit it like this:
(abbreviated code)
<script language=vbscript>
Sub cmdSubmit_onClick()
(Form vaildation code here)
End Sub

<form name="frmDataEntry" Action="fileinfo.asp" method="post">

( form inputs go here )

<input type="botton" name="CmdSubmit" value="CONTINUE">

This works great with IE & Opera, but FireFox will not submit the form.

Any ideas?

I think I just found the answer...
FireFox does not support VBSCRIPT!

What a bummer!
Now I'll have to rewite the page in JavaScript or put a notice
on the site that FireFox wont work!

Is Mozilla more secure than Internet Explorer?

Yes, Mozilla is a more secure browser/e-mail client than Internet Explorer/Outlook Express. There are several reasons why:

* Mozilla does not support ActiveX which (historically) has been the cause of many security problems
* Mozilla does not support VBScript - another technology that has caused security problems in the past
* Mozilla does not support Microsoft's Java VM
* Mozilla is not heavily integrated into the operating system, and does not grant extra privileges to HTML files loaded from the local computer
* Mozilla is not as vulnerable to e-mailed viruses. They can not be executed automatically, which was historically a problem in Microsoft's clients
* Mozilla does not allow execution of code from remote sites without user intervention, which has previously been a problem due to security flaws. While malware which targets Mozilla does exist, you have to confirm any installations which makes it easier to avoid spyware and trojans
* Mozilla gives complete control over cookies
* Mozilla gives detailed control of what scripts can and can not do
