I am using a text link to submit a form with the following funciton:

<a href="#" onmousedown="javascript: getElementById(form1).submit();>CLICK HERE</a>
It works beautifully in IE but not at all in Firefox. I use the same piece of code to submit a form using an image and it works with the image.

GetElementById And Firefox

May 24, 2006

I came across a third party script I want to learn how to configure as
well as learn more dhtml in the doing. I'm not much of a JS guy yet
but I'm working on it.

This script works fine in IE6 but is a dead fish in FireFox. There is
no support offered on the site where it came from.....

GetElementById Click In Firefox

Apr 8, 2007

Does anyone know how i can get the getElementById().click() to work in Firefox? It works ok in IE6 but not FF. I've herd that the click() event is not supported by FF. Is there any way to fix it?

There is an iframe on the page called "Switch". inside that it loads a html file with a button with an id of "DownON". Once that button is clicked it moves some text down. Works fine like i said in IE but not FF.

GetElementById Return Value Differences In Firefox/IE

Mar 26, 2007

In Firefox 2, document.getElementById is returning an HTMLDivElement,
in IE 7, it is returning an Object.

For example:

<div id="errorTableDiv">

errorTableDiv = document.getElementById("errorTableDiv");

Firefox prints HTMLDivElement and lets me appendChild() later on
IE prints Object and gives an error on the appendChild()

I do not understand why this happens or what the most socially
acceptable way to fix it is.

Firefox & GetElementById('main_txt') Doesn't Work

Jul 23, 2005

I've got here a sample of my function which is supposed to fade a
certain piece of text to another colour. This line is then located in a
for loop and it works pretty well in IE 6. However, in Firefox, and thus
I assume it will be the same in Netscape and Mozilla, it gives a problem
with the: getElementById('main_txt'). Due to that in setTimeout("",) it
requires the "" signes and thus I can not use the same ones in the
getElement part. IE has no problem with using '' in there, Firefox,
however, does. Can anyone think of how to get around this and make
firefox do this?

window.setTimeout("document.getElementById('main_txt').style.color =

This seemed like it should be so simple. It works fine in Firefox, but not in IE. The goal is to disable the form's Submit button, until the question is answered. (The alert is for troubleshooting.)


Obviously, this HTML is in a form:

Firebird And GetElementById Not Working

Jun 17, 2003

I've got the content div to auto stretch to fill the content size, but the blocks at the side don't follow thru. I'm using some Javascript code I found here to fix that, and it does in IE6 and Opear6, but not in Firebird. For some reason it won't read the actual height I've already specified (in any browser), but specifically in Firebird it won't adjust the size.

Document.getElementById Not Working In IE?

Sep 30, 2009

First a little background. I have a client (in-house) who insists that our training pages (launched from within iframes on a parent page) be able to load .wmv files with variables for the width and height parameters so we don't have to recode when videos are switched. Flash videos are not an option.

I've searched the net and have received several suggestions and even code snippets from several sources but the only one that comes close to working is this one:

GetElementById Not Working - How To Make It Work

Dec 27, 2010

This seems like a total beginner thing, but I don't know why it isn't working. I'm working from examples from a sitepoint pdf. Here's my html:


<h1 id="stupid">sdfasd</h1>


When I run an if statement, I'll get an alert letting me know that the value of target is null, but why is it null? It should contain a reference to the h1 node.
