asp frames and Firefox

asp frames and Firefox

asp frames and Firefox

Help please???? I have been advised by some of my users that our web site does not work with the latest version of Firefox.

I have three frames, heading frame, menu frame and body frame. The issue is when I try and execute a javascript function that is within the menu frame from the body frame using top.framename.functionname. It does nothing at all.

This was working fine up until a couple of weeeks ago.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If it's a client-side javascript code problem, the better forum would be: forum216: Javascript

RE: asp frames and Firefox

Thanks guitarzan, I have posted in forum216: Javascript but I do think it is an asp issue (the line top.framename.functionname is not being executed). ASP does not know what to do with the line top....

ASP scripting is over and done with once the content has been delivered to the useragent, it plays ABSOLUTELY no part in what happens after that.

RE: asp frames and Firefox

Hi guys, many thanks for all your help. As it turns out, the offending line was top.sidebar.ressettime. "sidebar" is the name of the frame and firefox has just added sidebar as a reserved word (difficult one to find).
