Does BOE XI have issues submitting parameters for a Crystal Report using Firefox 3.6.

The report is hosted on BOE XI server and called via URL.

It seems it uses javascript and after  I select all values for parameter s i hit OK and nothing happens.

it works fine with IE 7 and IE8.

According to this supportrd platforms document, BOE XI is not supported on anything after FireFox 2.0
http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/10adabe5-823f-2b10-edb9-fe8ccc5e3dd3?QuickLink=index&overridelayout=true

Not supported means they haven't tested it and won't fix the products to make them work unless you can show the problem exists in a supprted platform like FF 2.0

Interesting!

so a user with latest brwser will have some issues using a crystal repot hosted by BOE XI server.

Do you know if there is a newer server version that supports the newer browsers. no one uses FF 2.0 and IE 6 these days.

What do you think of the idea of using HTML forms instead of CR parameter forms and then passing the values programmatically (create a URL)  to the report via URL.

That method is available though I am not sure which programs support it.

I don't know if it does or not.
I can't find any references for BO 12.
