Form doesn't "submit" on Firefox

Form doesn't "submit" on Firefox

(OP)
I'm making a website and on one of the pages, the form doesn't seem to submit on Firefox. When you hit Submit, the browser acts like it's loading a new page, but then quits. The info is submitted to the site so it can update the changes, but the actual page that it's supposed to link to doesn't load.

The page that the form submits to is the same as the page they're on (interests.cgi), but with different parameters set. Ultimately, when they hit Submit, it should take them back to the same page they're on, but with the text "Changes saved successfully." at the top of the page.

On Internet Explorer, hitting the Submit button brings up the next page successfully with this text on it, but on Firefox, the next page doesn't appear.

This page is part of a website engine that parses plain text files to find Perl code to run. Here's the source of the page:

Like I said, on Internet Explorer the pages submit and everything correctly, but on Firefox, it will send the form data to the server but not load the new page.

I tried adding a "?x=(random number)" to the <form> tag thinking that Firefox might've just been caching something, but that didn't help either.

Any help will be appreciated.

RE: Form doesn't "submit" on Firefox

I would try testing FF with a shorter and simpler form but using the same techniques to see if it works.
