Description tim bates 2006-07-20 08:26:59 PDT
At the URL above:

1. Select a service (say  Enquiry Certificate Requests)
2. Selet a user type (say general public)
--> A form should be exposed with several more fields to complete

In safari, nothing happens, in Firefox 1.5, the form is drawn.

The server just returns an error to me (500 Internal Server Error). Is the server down, or maybe this page should be navigated to, rather than opened directly?
Comment 2 tim bates 2006-07-20 13:43:14 PDT
to open the problematic form page:

1. go to http://citydev-portal.edinburgh.gov.uk/portal/portal.jsp
2. click on "register for free" (lower left hand side of the page

This opens the problem form. You then simply select a useage need (radio button)

I selected "Property Enquiry Certificate Requests"

Then from the drop down select "general public" as a user type

Now you are seeing the bug: in Safari, the form remains blank, in Firefox it is populated with a series of form elements.

Confirmed with r15475.

Test case/reduction

Made the reduction in r16061.  

Problem seems to be the document.all("userTypeID") throwing an error since the select element only has a name="userTypeID".  When you put id="userTypeID" in the select tag as well, works fine in Webkit.... Firefox doesn't seem to mind the id not being there.

I can confirm that this works with the latest nightly build of WebKit  r19494 and not the current release of Safari.

So, in all fairness it's been fixed now :-)

The testcase doesn't work for me in r19506.
Comment 7 David Kilzer (:ddkilzer) 2007-02-08 14:36:49 PST
This was fixed by the fix for Bug 12280.

Matt, the test case works for me with a local debug build of WebKit r19507 with Safari 2.0.4 (419.3) on Mac OS X 10.4.8 (8N1037).
