Firefox / IE two forms issue

Strange issue I can't seem to solve. I have been working in IE to develop a few .avfp pages, which work great. Some of these pages contain two seperate <forms>

This works well in IE. However when I tested with FF, all items within the form area cannot be clicked - they are present and visible, but all hyperlinks and buttons are dead. Both form sections are terminated correctly and both have different name= and id=

Anyone come across this before ?

You need firebug:

It's a debugger not that dissimilar to the VFP Debugger.

I use it script tab with suspends at troubesome code spots. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Chrome has a similar feature (Options > Tools > Developer Tools)

Oh yeah .. and don't forget to right click the browser screen > reveal source
Some browsers see HTML and are able to "figure out" what was meant by mis-coded HTML
Other browers will ignore the mis-coded HTML; it's the wild west as far as I know. But reveal codes will show
you what the brower is parsing.
