    Search Function Not Working

    My 1st post - be gentle! My search function works properly on IE8 but when I use it on Firefox I get no results and I am not sure why this is! A search for "Glee" returns 6 items on IE8 but none on Firefox (& I believe Safari too). I'm not sure if the problem is the code or perhaps in the html later in the page. Thank you one & all for any help!

    Here is the code:

    <%@ Language=VBScript %>
    <% Option Explicit
    Response.Buffer = True
    Response.Expires=0 ' This specifies how long the client will cache the page
    'Response.Write "form=" & Request.Form & "<br>"

    Because JavaScript is not JAVA?
