I hope this helps. I'm really confused as to what would be the next thing to look at I have checked the session-timeout in tomcat and that didn't reproduce the same problem. I have switched all the methods from get to post. I was really hoping someone would have seen this before. One of the thoughs I had was that perhase the request for the domByString.js might not be working on the first click but that seemed really far fetch. Not to mention the fact that I have no data to support that. One other thing the location were thes page was being tested was a .mil domain would that have anything to do with it? Thanks again.
