Firefox 1.xx bug on Macs

Posted on 2007-03-26

Last Modified: 2008-02-01
When users try to sign up for an account using Firefox version 1.xx on a Mac, the get prompted to download a file (the next page) after hitting submit. Since I don't have a Mac, this is becoming very difficult to debug.

Here is the page:

http://ww.petelavelle.com/adMan/signUp.php

The code for the page is located here:

http://www.petelavelle.com/download/Signup.zip

Can someone help me figure out what is going wrong?

I think this line is causing the download prompt:

                        header("Location: confirmation.php?msg=" . rawurlencode("Advertiser Account Created") . "&goTo=" . urlencode($goToUrl));

Other than getting a database error that "Column 'nationwide_advertiser' cannot be null" if I didn't check the box at the bottom, it worked find for me. I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.11 on MacOSX Tiger.

By the way, you have some users "test11, test12, test13, & test14" that can be deleted now.

Sorry about that. The null error is fixed.

Thanks for testing it for me.

Could a couple more people do a test for me? I am stuck without a Mac for the time being.

Works fine for me in Firefox 1.5.x, Firefox 2.x and Safari 2.0.4.

Can your users still reproduce this error? What exact version of Firefox are they using?

I appreciate your time. This one is very tough for me to debug because I don't have a Mac.
