    oh my code was terrible. Turns out I hadn't declare a proper id= just a name=

    For IE name= was sufficient but Firefox needed id=

    Sounds like you found out that IE wrongly allows document.getElementById() to work with names and IDs, instead of just IDs.

    It would probably be good to know that Opera behaves the same way as IE on this matter, it's not just IE.

    Yeah, Opera does some things so that it will work with pages that were coded for IE.
