    When I paste the text

    <script src="//form.jotform.com/jsform/12165659163"></script>

    on the webpage where I want the form to appear, it does run fine with IE, but the form does not show with Firefox 3.6.18

    Hello polyc_cy,

    Thank you for posting.

    I have checked your code in your web page and it lacks the proper structure for a web page.  Earlier versions Firefox browsers (below FF4) happened to be strict with the coding structure.  For your form to show up you will need to place the HTML's basic structure and place the script inside the body tag.

    Let us know if the problem still persists after you have done this.

    Thanks,

    Liyam

    Thank you. I will fix this. Because it was working in IE, I though it was ok not to have the full structure... It makes sense.

    IE browsers aren't that too strict with coding that it won't mind if you missed a closing quote inside an HTML tag attribute (<body style="font-family: arial>), while in firefox I believe the example will kill the page. Probably they have only set the rule to run javascripts inside <head> and <body> tags and nowhere else.

    But firefox 4 now allows javascripts to be executed even if without the proper basic tag structure so it will show the form there.

    Warm regards,
