I am using .NET for my web application and cannot get the onpropertychange event to fire off if the web app is being rendered in either Mozilla or Firefox. Works fine with IE and Netscape. Basically what I am doing is passing a text string from a popup window to a hidden input on the main window which should pass the string on (from this hidden input) to another control on the page (that the hidden input is not a part of and cannot be included onto).

If the control is disabled, the event will not fire

May also be the same if it is hidden, just try showing it to see if it gets around it.

Also have you tried using OnChange instead? be aware of this issue though

Same link again, as for your other problem, it may be the same cause. The event is probably only fired if actually changed by the user
