focus/blur mozilla problems

Hi all,

I use the following function without problems in almost any browser (in NS4 does not work, but that is not a problem):

function dF( f, c ){
      var d = window.document.forms[f].elements[c];
      d.blur();
      d.focus();
      if( d.value != "" ){ d.select(); }
}

I call dF in two manners:

1) <body onload="dF('myForm','myField');"> // No problem

2) When current field.maxLength has been reached or enter key is pressed, set focus to next field // Here comes the problems in FireFox

Error: [Exception... "'Permission denied to get property XULElement.selectedIndex' when calling method: [nsIAutoCompletePopup::selectedIndex]"  nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)"  location: "JS frame :: /js/TMP9tegb3qfj3.php :: dF :: line 209"  data: no]
Source File: js/TMP9tegb3qfj3.php Line: 209

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I have four four postings on the net with exact the same symptoms, bot no solution.
I have tried adding fields, remoing tabindex, commenting all calls in the script, disabling popup blocker, testing in save mode, but nothing indicated any solution.

So I am sorry, I see no solution here.

The field to be selected is NOT an <input> field. It is a <select> and therefore you cannot call select() on it.

That's not the problem Zvonko (but thanks!)

The form is:

<body onLoad="dF( 'pepe', 'dni' )">
<form action="#" method="post" name="pepe" id="pepe">
<input name="cif" type="text" maxlength="9" tabindex="1">
<input name="dni" type="text" maxlength="9" tabindex="2">
<input name="nif" type="text" maxlength="9" tabindex="3" onClick="dF( 'pepe', 'cif' )">
</form>
</body>

As u can see there aren't selects :)

Ok, I downloaded Firefox0.9.3 and the strange thing is that the function IS executed even that the exception message occures.
