A funny analogy:

        Mr. Jones drives to his local supermarket, parks his car and leaves the
door open because, let's face it, opening the door is a chore. He steps
into the supermarket, puts the necessary groceries in a clean and shiny
container that the supermarket lends. When finished, he walks by the main
door and drops a tenner into an open bucket of money.

Mr. Jones and his supermarket use Internet Explorer by the way. Time to get
that security pack...

I have just tested an old JavaScript form that I have on my site
(http://www.schestowitz.com/Feedback/) and saw the behaviour you describe
in Firefox and in Konqueror. Oddly enough, only First name(s) gets saved. I
have looked at the source code to find an explanation, but could gather
none. Can you? This might be the key to solving your problem.
