Hi All,
I am facing a new challenge with Firefox. I tried with some stuffs but could not come up with a solution. Please help me.

I have defined a custom tag(which is an anchor tag) in my jsp. Have provided value for name & id in the java class. When i use , in IE it is disabling the button. But in Firefox it's not working.
So i tried with the following code.

This is disabling the buttons in both IE & Firefox. i can call the button to be disabled as .
But when i try to enable it again that is not working. Also i can find that this takes up a very large time and unnecessary loops are getting executed.

Could anyone suggest a solution.
