Thanks in advance

IE lets you hit "return" to submit any form; Netscape only lets you do so if the form has exactly one textfield. "Login" and "password" count as two textfields, so hitting return doesn't work. "It's not a bug, it's a feature."

You can work around this by pressing the <TAB> key, if the button looks selected....then press <Enter>

I know its not the done thing to ask questions in other peoples questions but any ideas WHY netscape doesn't let you submit a form with more than one textfield with the enter key?

Seems daft to me...

well, that's pretty easy to explain, netscape sees the next field in the form as the active field, and therefor will only do the submit when there's only one textfield and a submit button.
