Infopath People Selector not working in Chrome or Mozilla

Hello,

I have an infopath form setup to collect data and route to an active directory user for approval.  The people selector i've setup in the form will not work in mozilla or chrome but works fine in IE.  You can type the person's name and resolve them, but it puts a semicolon in front of their name, or if you try to do a lookup you find them, but it won't add them to the field.  If you submit the form, the routing doesn't work, and the response email shows ????? for the person's name.  Any ideas how to make this functionality work in Chrome or Mozilla, or am I just out of luck?

If you are using InfoPath on SharePoint 2007, you are out of luck.

If you are using InfoPath on SharePoint 2010, FireFox is supposed to have level 1 browser support.  If it is experiencing issues, I would submit a bug to Microsoft (https://connect.microsoft.com/).

Guess I"m out of luck!  It will have to wait until we upgrade to 2010 I guess!

InfoPath 2007 web forms have horrible browser compatibility with anything but Internet Explorer.  They really improved on this in 2010.
