When I change the product I have selected in the query interface, I get a 
script error. I am using IE5.
Comment 1 Daniel Roesen 2000-09-26 13:22:27 EDT
Same for IE4
Comment 2 Mark Harig 2003-04-17 17:38:38 EDT
I am NOT seeing a problem with the query.cgi when using Microsoft's Internet
Explorer 5.5.  However, I am seeing a script error when running the
'easy_enter_bug.cgi' script with IE5.5.

Details about how to reproduce this:

1. Logon to your bugzilla account.

2. Click on the 'New' action button.  This loads the CGI script:


3. Scroll to the bottom of the displayed page, and click on the button labelled
'Step 3. Choosing Your Product'

This loads the CGI script:


and causes IE5.5 to display the error messages:

   Line: 127
   Error: Expected ']'

This corresponds to the line with the following text:

   products['Dave's Action Items'] = "List of things Dave needs to get done";

My guess is that the apostrophe after "Dave" is terminating the string
prematurely.  Possibly, the problem could be fixed by using a backquote
character, or by relabelling the product, say, 'Action Items of Dave'.

FYI, this problem does not occur in Mozilla (RH 7.1 or 8).

Fixed now, wasnt escaping the ' character properly. Thanks
