Ok, I really need help figuring something out. On my computer I run Windows XP. I also use Microsoft Internet Explorer as my web browser. In a website where I need to click a submit, enter, ok ect. button it doenst work. For example if I filled out a form and need to submit it there will be a submit button at the bottom of the page. On some buttons such as this whenever I click the said submit button nothing happens. The button stays the same I click multiple times but to no avail. Whenever my courser is over the button at the bottem left of the screen where the little Explorer E is it says Javascript and then some gibberish that usually when it says anything, says something about the page(looks like a wierd url). So these buttons dont work and I think it has something to do with javascript which I know very little about. I would appreciate any feedback about this problem and if there is a god someone will have a fix for it. Thanks!

I was about to ask the same thing so while we wait for your reply try this long shot :

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type Regsvr32 urlmon.dll, and then click OK.
When prompted with the DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded message, click OK.

The problem could be because script is blocked. Check to see what version of Java you have. The latest is 1.5 08. To check this go to control panel and double click on "coffee cup"/select general tab/ click on "about". If it needs upgrading go here:http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
and download the 08 for end users.
Go back to control panel and double click on "Internet Options"/ select "security"tab/click on "Default Level"/ click "Apply"/ click "OK"
Now select the "Advanced" tab/ scroll down to "Java Sun"/put a check in box next to "Use JRE l.5.0_08 (if this box was unchecked, you will have to restart computer after placing check) /click "Apply"/ click "OK"

I would suggest going to control panel and then add/remove programs and finding the java installations in there and remove all of them they will be something like = J2SE Java runtime environment ....

Just remove all of them starting with the most recent one to the oldest one. Reboot the computer as needed and once when done.

Next go to Java web site http://www.java.com and downlaod th elatest version it should end with 5.0 Update 8

When this is installed give your form a try and see what happens

Okay, the buttons for submit are not related to Java per se. I have Java disabled in my browser and it does not affect the submit buttons. What is involved is the JavaScript - which is somewhat different, and something is blocking the JavaScript or else you don't have them installed which is the less likely cause.

1) Do you have a firewall?

2) If so, which one and does it have privacy settings? The answer to these two questions will help us determine if the firewall is blocking the JavaScript.

3) Which browser are you using? The answer to this question will aid us in discovering what settings in the brower may be blocking the script.

Some of these forms can be tricky. It is possible that you left something out or entered an abbreviation incorrectly or whatever. I reread your first post and from that I got that you are able to sometime submit forms and sometimes not. Is that correct? If possible, give a site address where you have recently been unable to submit a form.
