    Hello! I am in the process of writing a tool that uses macros for login/signups. Don't want to get too into what the tool is just yet, but I need to know something, and hope to not take too much of your time.

    If you could, please load the following page in both firefox and ie:

    secure*diigo*com/sign-up (cant post links yet, * is dot, of course)

    What I need to know is if the cursor sets focus - that is, sets the cursor automatically - to the first field for firefox and ie.

    On mine, firefox sets the focus to 'Choose a Username', but in ie, it does not.

    It is essential to know how this functionality behaves for the 2 different browsers, and versions if possible (ie7,8,etc) for the macros to work properly on all users computers.

    Thanks for your help!

    use the FF, and the IE imacros plugin to record the process. Different versions will give you their own click tag i guess.

    Thank you, I thought about using imacros as well. For now, though, I just need to know how the focus behaves on the different browsers, on computers besides my own.

    done - in FF 3.6.10 the focus is automatically set to first field without me doing anything

    in IE 7.0.5730.13 the focus is not automatically set.

    Shame you ain't using PHP with cURL or something, otherwise it wouldn't matter whether focus was set or not.

    If it's a browser compatibility thing, why not use spoon?

    spoon.net/browsers/

    it allows you to run IE, FF, safari, chrome and opera without installs. Also allows you to test in a couple of different versions of each browser. Figured this may save you some time.

    Thank you, Youssef, the spoon works great! :D Didn't know such thing existed! Now I need a test done from a Vista, if anybody uses it, otherwise I can use a friends computer for that. I believe it should behave the same way with XP or Vista, anyways. Thanks!
