Form submit button not showing up in firefox

despite W3C validation

Pardon me if this has already been asked but this problem is really frustrating me.

I have designed a few drop down lists and have validated the code using W3C validator. Despite it the form submit button is not visible in firefox. It is fine in internet explorer. I am using the latest version of firefox with javascript on. I even compared the source code as visible in forefox and in IE, and there seems to be no difference. I even tried remving the tables from the forms as I thought that the elements might be overlapping, but to no avail. I searched mozilla bug list and forums but could not find any solution. Can any one suggest me what is going wrong here?

The code i am using is:

<input type="button" value="GO" onClick="document.form.submit()"></input>

Do you have <FORM> tags around the form?

Have you tried using:

<input type="submit" value="GO">

Thanks for replying. I do have the form tags around and it displays well in IE. I ll just try using your suggestion, but the problem is if i do not use "onclick", it interferes with other drop down menus.

Odd. Does your site validate [validator.w3.org]?

Are you using any type of CSS formatting thats upsetting things? Maybe its there really, you just can`t see it.

Not sure if it's the cause, but the closing tag is not needed.

</input> (Try removing that)
