having a challenge getting Firefox to work with the following javascript...it's a rado button that opens two frames:
<script type="text/javascript">

function frame1(toLocation) 

{

    frames['frame1'].location.href = toLocation;

}

    </script>

    

    

    <script type="text/javascript">

function frame2(toLocation) 

{

    frames['frame2'].location.href = toLocation;

}

    </script>

    

    

<input type="radio" checked value="1" onClick="frame1('myaddress.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>;frame2('myaddress2.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>');" name="inlinedisplay">

Open in new window

Please show the frame definition

If you only have ID="frame1" you need document.getElementById('frame1').src
but for compatibility with older browser use NAME="frame1"
and window.frames["frame1"].location

here's the code with the frames....it works in IE, but in firefox, the radio buttons don't do anything. Thanks!
<script type="text/javascript">

function frame1(toLocation) 

{

    frames['frame1'].location.href = toLocation;

}

    </script>

    

    

    <script type="text/javascript">

function frame2(toLocation) 

{

    frames['frame2'].location.href = toLocation;

}

    </script>

    

    

<input type="radio" checked value="1" onClick="frame1('myaddress.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>;frame2('myaddress2.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>');" name="inlinedisplay">
 
 
 

<iframe id="frame1" src="myurl" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" style="overflow:visible; width:100%; display:none" target="_self"></iframe>

<iframe id="frame2" src="myurl2" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" style="overflow:visible; width:100%; display:none;"></iframe>

change
id="frame1" to name="frame1"

hmmm....by making it name="frame1" versus id="frame1" the frames don't open at all in firefox w/ or w/out the radio buttons.

You also need to close the bracket

<input type="radio" checked value="1" onClick="frame1('myaddress.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>;

should be

<input type="radio" checked value="1" onClick="frame1('myaddress.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>');

You named the frames the same as the function

Here is a better solution
<script type="text/javascript">

function setFrame(frameName,toLocation) {

    window.frames[frameName].location.href = toLocation;

}

    </script>

    

    

<input type="radio" checked value="1" 

onClick="setFrame('frame1','myaddress.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>');

setFrame('frame2','myaddress2.asp?b=<%=Request.QueryString("b")%>');" name="inlinedisplay">

 

 

 

<iframe name="frame1" src="about:blank" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" 

style="overflow:visible; width:100%; display:none" target="_self"></iframe>

<iframe name="frame2" src="about:blank" scrolling="no" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" frameborder="0" vspace="0" hspace="0" 

style="overflow:visible; width:100%; display:none;"></iframe>
