    Firefox and Invalid Email Address

    I don't know if this is just me but I seem to be having a hell of a time signing for things with my email address. It conains a ' _ ' , but I'm not sure if that is the problem. I keep getting the same error message saying invalid email address.

    Any ideas of how to get round this?

    I have a '_' (underscore) in mine and I don't have any issues. I'm running FF2. There isn't a reason why it shouldn't work. Does it work ok in IE?

    Re: Firefox and Invalid Email Address

    erm... WHAT is reporting "invalid email address" exactly? a screenshot would help

    since firefox does absolutely no form validation itself, sounds more like a badly written piece of javascript on whatever site you're using

    does it have a space in it?
    is it missing the @? (kind of obvious) - but I have forgotten it often enough!
