Here is the javascript function:

function setTransferSID(value){
            YAHOO.Organizers.PersonSearch.hide();
            ContactUpdate.personid.value = value;
      }

 it works perfectly in IE and Maxthon (ie counterpart), however in firefox i get the error:

ContactUpdate is not defined
setTransferSID("191963")index.cf...SiteID=14 (line 379)
onclick(click clientX=320, clientY=268)index.cf...UXA%3D%3D (line 3)
[Break on this error] ContactUpdate.personid.value = value;



<form id="ContactUpdate" action="UpdateSiteContact" method="post">
	<input name="SiteID" type="hidden" value="#getSiteID()#" />
	SID:<input type="Text" name="personid" style="width: 50px;" >
	<input type="button" value="search" id="ShowPersonSearch" onclick="showPplSearchRequest();">
	Contact Type:
	<select name="ContactTypeID">
	<option value="">&nbsp;</option>
        </select>
	<input name="btn_Update" type="submit" value="Update" class="button">
</form>
