firefox rowcommand gridview

ASP = 2.0

ie 8+  Everything works great.

In Firefox my rowcommand is not firing

Here is the code behind

    Protected Sub MYGRIDVIEW_RowCommand(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewCommandEventArgs) Handles QueryNameList.RowCommand
        Dim rowIndex As Integer = Integer.Parse(e.CommandArgument.ToString())
        Me.MYGRIDVIEW.SelectedIndex = rowIndex
 response.write(e.commandname)
         
    End Sub

    Protected Sub MYGRIDVIEW_RowDataBound(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridViewRowEventArgs) Handles QueryNameList.RowDataBound
              e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", _
       Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackEventReference(sender, "Select$" + e.Row.RowIndex.ToString))
 
   End Sub

THE  MYGRIDVIEW_RowDataBoundIS WHERE IT BREAKS. THE JAVA INSERTION "   Page.ClientScript..." seems to trump the row command. If I take out this code the EDIT button works but I need this in order to select a row and have it appear selected -  Yellow(see below)



Here's the aspx - remember it works correctly in IE 8
Notice there is a hidden select field -Not sure if it is needed, Choosing rows works in firefox. The select command is what is sent regardless if I press the edit button or not.(see response.write(e.commandname) above.

  <asp:GridView ID="MYGRIDVIEW" runat="server" onmouseout = "document.body.style.cursor = 'pointer'"  AutoGenerateColumns="False"     DataSourceID="MYDATA" ">
              <Columns>
                         <asp:BoundField DataField="MYFIELDNAME"   >
                  </asp:BoundField>
                      <asp:ButtonField CommandName="EDIT" Text="EDIT">
                        </asp:ButtonField>
            <asp:CommandField ShowSelectButton="True" >
                       <HeaderStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn" />
                       <ItemStyle CssClass="HiddenColumn" />
                   </asp:CommandField>
              </Columns>
<SelectedRowStyle BackColor="Yellow" />
                                               
                       </asp:GridView>


WOULD THIS BE RESOLVED BY GOING TO asp 3.x???

Actually I once used and it worked well.

Page.ClientScript.GetPostBackClientHyperlink(this.GridView1, "Select$" + e.Row.RowIndex)

I have all of that in my code. There is something not working with FireFox. The problem is just with Firefox.

just to be sure... you noticed the difference between the two codes:
you have GetPostBackEventReference and I have GetPostBackClientHyperlink ...not sure how much it matters because I have it working in IE and FF.

I changed to GetPostBackClientHyperlink  and its the same problem. It reads all onclick events as a "Select" even if I am clicking a command button.
