Firefox, POST '#' symbol
Posted on 2011-03-15
We currently had one of our programmers create a simple web inventory search application. After searching for part numbers and returning results, you are allowed to 'ADD' parts that you want by email.
Before going on to the email form, the part numbers are sent using POST. The email form should display all of the parts that were added but part numbers with a '#' symbol do not show up. This works fine in IE but not in Firefox.
I am told by the programmer that Firefox uses the '#' symbol as a separator therefore nothing can be done. Is this true? I'm sure there are ways to work around this and any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.
