My javascript works in IE and Firefox, but not Chrome.

I have the following javascript code in a form.  It looks at a value of a field in the form and rewrites the links to append the session tab at the end of the url.  This works like it should in IE and Firefox without any problems.  Chrome, however; does not work, nor is it giving me a js error message.  Can anyone point me in the right direction please?  TIA
var sessionID;

function initializepage() {

   if (sessionID==null) {

sessionID=document.forms[0].sessiontab.value

        }

        

    setlinks(sessionID);    

    

    

}
 

function setlinks(v) {

       for (var i = 0; i < document.links.length; i++) {

              document.links[i].search=document.links[i].search + v

             }

}

Hi,

I've checked around some reference and found that the href or link property is read only. IE is an exception because it allows the link to be rewritten.

To minimise the changes to your code, I changed to use window.open to overcome the problem.

Try the code below, it works in IE, Firefox or Chrome.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

redirTime = "0";

redirURL = "http://orders.tuckerrocky.com/CGI-BIN/CGIMENU1";

function redirTimer() {

  self.setTimeout("self.location.href = redirURL;", redirTime);
 

}

//  End -->
 
 

var sessionID;

function initializepage() {

  if (typeof sessionID == "undefined")   {

    sessionID = document.forms[0].sessiontab.value

  }

  // setlinks(sessionID);

}
 

/*

function setlinks(v) {

for (var i = 0; i < document.links.length; i ++ ) {

var tmp = document.links[i].search + v;

document.links[i].search = tmp;

}

}

 */
 

function OpenURL(lnk)  {

  window.open(lnk + sessionID, "_self");

  return false;

}
