I have the following calculate function which is not working in FF or chrome.  Works great in IE.  Here are the fields that should change but do not update in FF or chrome.  Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

<input type="text" name="a3" id="a3" value="$11.75" align="right" size=7 readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">

<input type="text" name="a4" id="a4" value="$0.89" size="7" readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">

<input type="text" name="total" id="total" value="$12.64" size="7" readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">
<script>
function calculate(f) 
{
var num=parseInt(f.quantity.options[f.quantity.options.selectedIndex].value);
var cost=(7.95+4.95);
var tax=.0825

if(document.getElementById('billState').value != "TX") //replace MY_STATE_DDL_ID with the control ID of your state drop down list
{
   tax = 0;
}

f.a3.value="$"+(((num*cost)).toFixed(2));
var tax2=(((num*cost))*tax);
f.a4.value="$"+tax2.toFixed(2);
f.total.value="$"+((tax2+((num*cost))).toFixed(2));
pieces=f.a3.value.split('.');
pieces[1]=(pieces[1]) ? pieces[1]+'00' : '00';
//f.a3.value=pieces[0]+'.'+(pieces[1]).substr(0,2);
}
</script>

Have you tested it by taking the readonly flag off? If you have to keep it in the textbox properties, you could toggle it in another function.

I should have said when the quantity changes.  That's where it works in IE but on in FF or CHrome.

you mean this example:
<script>
function calculate(f) 
{
var num=parseInt(f.quantity.options[f.quantity.options.selectedIndex].value);
var cost=(7.95+4.95);
var tax=.0825

if(document.getElementById('billState').value != "TX") //replace MY_STATE_DDL_ID with the control ID of your state drop down list
{
   tax = 0;
}

f.a3.value="$"+(((num*cost)).toFixed(2));
var tax2=(((num*cost))*tax);
f.a4.value="$"+tax2.toFixed(2);
f.total.value="$"+((tax2+((num*cost))).toFixed(2));
pieces=f.a3.value.split('.');
pieces[1]=(pieces[1]) ? pieces[1]+'00' : '00';
//f.a3.value=pieces[0]+'.'+(pieces[1]).substr(0,2);
}
</script>

<form name=myForm>
Qty : <select id="quantity" name="quantity" onChange="calculate(document.myForm)">
	<option value=1>1</option>
	<option value=2>2</option>
	<option value=3>3</option>
</select>	<br>

State : <select id=billState name=billState>
	<option value="AB">AB</option>
	<option value="TX">TX</option>
	<option value="CD">CD</option>
</select>	<br>
		
<input type="text" name="a3" id="a3" value="$11.75" align="right" size=7 readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">
<input type="text" name="a4" id="a4" value="$0.89" size="7" readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">
<input type="text" name="total" id="total" value="$12.64" size="7" readonly style="text-align: right; font-weight: bolder;">
</form>

The sample I posted above also works fine in FF :)

you should post a running sample, we cannot predict what your code and find the issue...

if you aggree on my sample working, then compare that one with your code

look for select elements, do you have value defined? do you have id & name for each element? did you use onChange event handler? do you refer to form correctly?
