This code works in IE and Opera, but not in FireFox, how do I make it work in FireFox:

function DoIt()
 {
                var sHTML = "";
                sHTML += '<FORM id="formBlah" method="POST" action="/save_blah.php">';
                sHTML += '<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="courseId" VALUE=\'1\'>';
                sHTML += '<INPUT TYPE="hidden" NAME="certId" VALUE=\'1\'>';
                ...
                ...
                sHTML += '<br><input type="submit"><br>';
                sHTML += '</FORM>';
               
                document.getElementById("divBlah").innerHTML = sHTML;
                document.getElementById("divBlah").document.getElementById("formBlah").submit();
 }
....
....

<DIV id="divBlah" style="visibility:hidden">
</DIV>

There are a couple of things you can try.  One would be to give the submit button an id and call buttonId.click().  The other would be to use DOM functions instead of innerHTML.  If you don't want to build them from scratch, try my method for DOM building: http://jsoda.info/.
