Summary0000219: "Find an Assurer" unusable (at least without javascript)
DescriptionUnlike the "My Location" page, which threw me to the next page as soon as I finished entering the new location, the "Find an Assurer" page does exactly nothing and there's no button or similar that could be activated.

Additional InformationBrowser used: w3m/0.5.1+cvs-1.938 (no Javascript support)

TagsNo tags attached.

This issue has been resolved, correct?

Sorry to disappoint you, but nothing has changed, it still won't do anything at all.

"Berlin, Berlin, Germany" works here (without Javascript).
Sascha: What did you enter in the form?

It doesn't matter what I'm entering since it doesn't submit anything to the server.
I'm using w3m: w3m version w3m/0.5.1, options lang=en,m17n,image,color,ansi-color,mouse,gpm,menu,cookie,ssl,ssl-verify,external-uri-loader,w3mmailer,nntp,ipv6,alarm,mark
Which browser did you use for testing?

Did you try to press "Enter" in the field?

In w3m, Return (Enter) is used to switch between navigation (on the page) and editing the field. It doesn't do anything else.

FYI, w3m is a text-based browser, similar to Lynx. I have not used it. Has anyone else tried this using that browser? We use AJAX, which may not be supported on that browser program.

I've been using w3m for since I first joined. Apart from this new AJAX stuff for entering a location, it has always worked fine.
It doesn't support JavaScript (and therefore AJAX), but that doesn't matter, since I'd deactivate it for security reasons anyway.

AJAX means "Asynchronous JavaScript And XML". Why does anyone expect this to work with JavaScript disabled?

The site is designed to work with or without JS, however JS adds extra functionality, but if there are browsers that operate differently then everything else this is a corner case and we'll be chasing our tails for years trying to cover every aspect of every browser someone ever tries to come up with.

I never expected this bells and whistles stuff (location autocompletion and the like) to work without JavaScript. I do, however, expect to be _usable_ without JavaScript.

Works here with Firefox (Javascript disabled) and lynx (no Javascript support at all, version 2.8.5rel.1). Unfortunately, w3m did not liked my passphrase (I didn't manage to get logged in) so I could not test the form with w3m.

Sascha: Did you tried with "Berlin, Berlin, Germany"? Are you able to use a "more common" browser such as Firefox or Konqueror? If your problem persists, I suggest you file a new bug as the general problems seems to be solved. Maybe this is w3m specific.

I tested w3m on the "Find an assurer" page and it works perfect.

w3m version w3m/0.5.1+cvs-1.938, options lang=en,m17n,color,ansi-color,menu,cookie,ssl,ssl-verify,external-uri-loader,w3mmailer,nntp,ipv6,alarm,mark

Added a submit button, verified to be working in lynx and w3m (ubuntu 6.06)
