Subject RE: Character encoding problems with cforms-ajax with dojo 0.3/0.4 and Firefox3
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2008 17:18:06 GMT
This bug is supposed to be fixed in Mozilla 1.9.1, which it appears will be included in Firefox
3.1 (judging from http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-1.9.1/ ). I have the same problem
with a Cforms application and have been meaning to try a Firefox 3.1 beta to see if it actually
fixes the problem but haven't had the time. If anyone does give it a try I'd be interested
in hearing their experience. It has been very frustrating since Firefox 3 came out.
