Firefox/Mozilla and BUTTON problem

It seems that if you use an Active.HTML.BUTTON inside a form in firefox (and prob'ly other Mozilla browsers) that button acts like a submit button and triggers the form's action. Not a desireable result.

What I found is the <BUTTON ...> tag in firefox causes this to happen and that is the tag that the active widgets button generates.

Any work around for this ?

Ummmm, OK... How do I turn off the submit trigger ?

Oh, I see... after creating the button

b = Active.HTML.BUTTON
b.setId("someId");
b.setAttribute("type","BUTTON") <--- this stops it from being a submit button in the firefox world !!!!
