Your quesiton is rather vague, but Firebird does support JavaScript. Some scripts may be written in (bad) way that makes them work only in IE, but most work fine in Firebird for me. Does that answer your question?

MSIE doesn't support JavaScript, but only JScript (but does interpret JavaScript as JScript). Both are compatible with ECMAScript.

This is my problem ...and it is the Firebirds problem.
I cannot enter to my Bank site and Javascript Console signals these errors >>>

>Error: document.layers has no properties
Source File: file:///c:/doc/BPV%20privati.htm
Line: 40

>Error: document.layers has no properties
Source File: file:///c:/doc/BPV%20privati.htm
Line: 100

>Error: event is not defined
Source File: file:///c:/doc/BPV%20privati.htm
Line: 119

And these are the three statements >>>>>>

>is_ie?document.all[menuopen].style.visibility='hidden':document.layers[menuopen].visibility='hidden';

>is_ie?document.all[menuopen].style.visibility='hidden':document.layers[menuopen].visibility = 'hidden';

>var x = (document.layers) ? e.pageX : event.clientX;

IE works fine using "document.all" .
Mozilla uses "document.layers" and maybe there is a problem or the programmers
are not so much able with Netscape Javascript....but most of the clients has IE and
the programmers are not so much interested to the Netscape.........
It's a pity because I'd prefer Firebirds but it cannot be only for surfing web.........
Thanks a lot.

Netscape 4 uses document.layers. IE uses document.all. You should be using document.getElementByID which is supported by IE and Mozilla.

Thanks, but I cannot and I could not change the programs of the banks.........
Maybe it would be easier (not sure....) build a Firebirds with Jscript as an option......to Javascript......I'm afraid both are impossible.........
(I think it'd be more usefull than ActiveX plugin.... ).
