While testing web pages developed in IE6, find that a submit button is missing in Firefox. Was also gone in Netscape until running to emulate IE.

Any ideas?

Hello Georgj, Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

Any ideas?

Are you using some sort of proprietary code for those submit buttons? Possibly a FrontPage dynamic button or something?

Code is entered in Frontpage, but is ASP. Here is the snipet in question.

<input type="SUBMIT" value="Add to Cart" name="addtocart">

Another submit with the same structure displays fine in the program.

Can you show us the code surrounding that button please? Just cut and paste the relevant code in your reply. We'll pick it apart to see where the problem is. A missing closing tag somewhere possibly? Have you validated the page? You may find some errors that are most likely the cause of the problem.

one other piece of info: The area where the button is to be is covered by a gif image. If I don't display the gif, the button seems to be there...is it getting covered by the gif (which has a z-index of 6)?

Is there a reason why you have the gif covering the Submit button?

covering may be the wrong wording. The gif gets loaded first and has some hyperlinks to jump to other pages. The submit button is placed over a area of the gif that is empty. In IE6 and Netscape, it shows up fine, but FF seems to have issue with it.

did some quick testing. If I move the button outside of the gif boundary, it is there. Must be a issue with z-order?

Found the little bugger...missing a ";" after the z-index value as shown below.

<div style="left: 818; top: 500; position: absolute; z-index: 7 width: 100">

Thanks for the help.
