Submit Form via LINK to AJAX (FireFox Beta does not work NOW, use to)

Hello All;

This USE to work in FF, all the way up until they made a change in the new FF Beta.
This works in IE and Chrome, and Older FF.

<form name="HelpForm_1" action="Add-Ons/HelpContent.asp?rhcid=6" method="post" onsubmit="xmlhttpPost('Add-Ons/HelpContent.asp?rhcid=6', 'HelpForm_1', 'HelpDiv_1', '<img src=\'graph/pleasewait.gif\'>'); return false;" onClick="showhelp('HelpID_1');">
 
<a title="How do I edit information in my Profile?" language="Javascript" onmouseover="window.status='How do I edit information in my Profile?';return true" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true" class="HelpButton" href="javascript:submit(xmlhttpPost('Add-Ons/HelpContent.asp?rhcid=6', 'HelpForm_1', 'HelpDiv_1', '<img src=\'graph/pleasewait.gif\'>'));">How do I edit information in my Profile?</a>

<input type="hidden" name="Type" value="Help" />
<input type="hidden" name="hid" value="1" />
</form>

Open in new window


This as you can see is displaying the information via AJAX.
I have tried several different things that I have found online
Example:
<a href="#" onClick="javascript:document.yourFormName.submit();return false">link</a>

But, this will display the actual page, not display in the AJAX <div>

Any other thoughts or suggestions on this one?
(And this is not the only issue that I have on my site(s) with the new FF change, What a blasted mess, they really need to stop messing with the browser)

try changing:
 href="javascript:submit(xmlhttpPost('Add-Ons/HelpContent.asp?rhcid=6', 'HelpForm_1', 'HelpDiv_1', '<img src=\'graph/pleasewait.gif\'>'));"

to:
 href="#" onclick="xmlhttpPost('Add-Ons/HelpContent.asp?rhcid=6', 'HelpForm_1', 'HelpDiv_1', '<img src=\'graph/pleasewait.gif\'>'); return false;"

To simplify your AJAX implementation, I would suggest you use jQuery or MooTools. In any event can you post the code for your functions xmlhttpPost and showHelp?
