    resolved [RESOLVED] Ajax & Firefox problem

    So I want a form that is submitted with ajax. What I have so far works fine in IE but not in Firefox. Heres my code:

    //Sends Sign-Up Form
    function sendsuf(){
    	var ajaxRequest;
    		// Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari
    		ajaxRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
    	} catch (e){
    		// Internet Explorer Browsers
    			ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
    		} catch (e) {
    				ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
    			} catch (e){
    				// Something went wrong
    				alert("Your browser broke!");
    				return false;
    	// function that will receive data sent from the server
    	ajaxRequest.onreadystatechange = function(){
    		if(ajaxRequest.readyState == 4){
    //  I think the problem is somewhere below this line
    	ajaxRequest.open('POST', 'adduser.php', true);
    	ajaxRequest.setRequestHeader('Content-Type', 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
    	ajaxRequest.setRequestHeader("Content-length", params.length);
    	ajaxRequest.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close");
        	var fullname = document.getElementById('fullname').value;
        	var email = document.getElementById('email').value;
    	ajaxRequest.send('fullname=' + fullname + '&email=' + email);
    Any ideas?

    OK so the point is... Don't give you form elements the "name=" parameter instead of "id=" when you're trying to retrieve their id. I'm not sure why that stopped anything from going through, but it did.
