You're form calls validate() on submitting. That always returns false, which causes the form submit to abort. This behaviour was built in to allow JavaScript to prevent a form from submitting if some fields were not filled in properly. You appear to want to use it in this way, but you need to return true to allow the form to submit.

You have already been given the answer: when you wish the form to submit do not return false.
