That appears to be right, I've sent an email to their so called Tech support. Thanks for the help.

Dear Client,

Thank you for your email. We have duplicated this problem within the
Mozilla Firefox web browser. We will forward this information on to our
Quality Assurance department, and hopefully they can get this resolve
resolved. In the meantime we kindly ask that you use the Internet
Explorer web browser to do mutual fund research.

You can also use the IE tab extension to use the rendering engine that IE uses right inside Firefox. You could also save their page to disk, correct the mistake that flanagan pointed out, and submit the form (with absolute urls) that way.

If a site produces an error that document.forms is not a function, it can only mean that parentheses were used. Open your error console and try these javascript links. The first should produce an alert. The second will produce an error.

<a href="javascript:alert(document.forms[0]);">document.forms[0]</a>
<a href="javascript:alert(document.forms(0));">document.forms(0)</a>

I was receiving the same error and this post fixed it! Thank you!!
