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">

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>

So do what I suggested

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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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>
