Default Appendix F Error w/ Firefox.


Working with examples File02form.htm.

Works fine in IE 6.01, but errors in Firefox 1.01. Wondering why?

This is passed to Form02Response.asp in IE 6.01
http://localhost/BegASP/File02Respon...d=C%3A%5Cntldr

This is passed to Form02Response.asp in Firefox 1.01
http://localhost/BegASP/File02Respon...lePicked=ntldr

And this is the resultant error:

The page has vbscript? If has vbscript, that is a Microsoft product and isn't supported in other browsers. I don't remember seeing a vbscript plugin for Firefox... Also, firefox may not replace certain characters with the %<hex> equivalent.

FireFox does not support VB Script due to possibly of code that is capable of doing harm to the PCs.
