HTML frameset not loading, frames are blank with no content

I have an old frameset page I have been using for a long time, its just a little SQL utility. But it will not load on some browsers, notably Firefox. But other browsers it loads fine. The short HTML is attached. I literally get just a blank white screen on those browsers. I have not worked with framesets for a long time, but need to get this little guy working. Is there something wrong with my code? Thank you!

Give the frames width and height, and make sure asp pages are in the same folder, or change src accordingly. Also, Do the asp pages have any viewable content?

The pages have viewable content. Like I said, in some browsers it works fine. So its not a missing file or missing content problem, there is something wrong with the frameset, I believe.

I added width and height (see attached), that didn't change anything.

I solved my own problem by finding another site that was working in those other browser, code is attached.
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Frameset//EN"

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="content-type" CONTENT="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1">
<TITLE>SQL Query Utility</TITLE>
</HEAD>

<FRAMESET ROWS="240,*" FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER="0">
	<FRAME SRC="queryin.asp" NAME="writer" NORESIZE FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER="0" MARGINWIDTH="1" MARGINHEIGHT="1">
	<FRAME SRC="queryout.asp" NAME="results" NORESIZE FRAMESPACING="0" FRAMEBORDER="0" BORDER="0" MARGINWIDTH="16" MARGINHEIGHT="16">
