I've got a fairly simple, bog-standard PHP emailer script that's posted to from an HTML form.  IE7 and Safari (for Win) has no issues with the script (i.e. instant transmission of message) but there seems to be a delay when done through Firefox.  I thought it may have been the server but several test messages sent through the other browsers worked fine in the time between the FF send and the Outlook receipt. 

I will check this some more tonight, but has anyone encountered this before?

Thats strange seeing as its all server side based. Does it take any longer to load the page on FF than on IE7?

No more than the usual FF bloat.  I think it could be a one-off aberration - more testing required methinks! Undecided

As has already been suggested, PHP is a server side language - the browser should be of no consequence. I would suggest instead that you look at the HTML/Javascript the PHP script is actually outputting, the likelihood that the HTML/Javascript is not correct/broken/non standard is far greater than PHP itself being the issue. Remembering of course that IE is by default more lenient on poorly constructed HTML etc. than Firefox which enforces standards more strictly.

Good luck.
