I'm stumped by a problem. I have a form in a web application that works fine in Firefox and Chrome. In IE when I access the web application through the site URL the form does not post back the filled in information, but when I access the web application using the server name instead of the URL on our network the form works.

You're not giving us much to go on.

My SWAG would be that you're using a page-relative URL that's being interpreted differently across browsers, but that's as good a guess as I can give given the lack of details.

Some additional information:
Using Struts2 and the Struts2-jQuery plugin. The submit button is a Struts2-jQuery submit tag.

Another odd thing about the problem is that sometimes, maybe 10% of the time, the form will post.

I'd like to see the URLs you are posting to.

This is a private web site so I cannot give you the URL.

I was able to fix the problem by redeploying the site. In the end it looks like the problem may have been caused by the Waffle framework. I was seeing always seeing a "Authorization: Negotiate" in the request header. Now I only see the "Authorization: Negotiate" in the request header when I first go to the web site and not when the form is being posted back.
