    Why wont .fireEvent work in Firefox?

    We are having real trouble finding a substitute for the .fireEvent function used in this script. We have gotten some great suggestions, but nothing as seemed to work. Here is the entire jsp(script on bottom)

    <%@taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/core" prefix="f"%>

    <%@taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/jsf/html" prefix="h"%>
    <%@taglib uri="http://www.ibm.com/jsf/html_extended" prefix="hx"%>
    <%@ taglib uri="http://javascript4jsf.dev.java.net/" prefix="j4j"%>
    <%@page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
    pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1" session="false"%>
    <%@page import="javax.portlet.*"%>
    <portlet:defineObjects />


    <f:view>
    <hx:scriptCollector id="scriptCollector1">
    <BR>
    <h:form styleClass="form" id="userVerifyForm" >
    <TABLE>
    <TR>
    <TD>
    <h:commandLink styleClass="submitButtonLink"
    id="submitButton2" action="#{ConsentForm.validateUser}" style="display:none" rendered="#{!ConsentForm.checkPreregisteredFlow}">
    <j4j:idProxy id="submitButton2_" />
    </h:commandLink>
    <h:commandLink styleClass="submitButtonLink"
    id="submitButton1" action="#{ConsentForm.enrollPreRegisteredUser}" style="display:none" rendered="#{ConsentForm.checkPreregisteredFlow}">
    <j4j:idProxy id="submitButton1_" />
    </h:commandLink>
    </TD>
    </TR>
    </TABLE>
    </h:form>
    </hx:scriptCollector>
    </f:view>


    <script language="javascript">
    // disable button and submit form
    if(document.getElementById("submitButton2_")){
    var buttonId2=document.getElementById("submitButton2_").title;
    document.getElementById(buttonId2).fireEvent("onclick");
    }

    if(document.getElementById("submitButton1_")){
    var buttonId2=document.getElementById("submitButton1_").title;
    document.getElementById(buttonId2).fireEvent("onclick");
    }

    </script>

    Because fireEvent is IE only. The W3C equivalent is dispatchEvent.

    If the events are defined inline, it's probably better off to use
    Code:
    document.getElementById(buttonId2).onclick();

    Why won't .fireEvent work in Firefox?

    I thought I had tried this already, but your suggestion worked. I never could get dispatchEvent to work. Thanks
