This morning, a client using FireFox 27, submitted a form at our website. What we got was each form element three times! I'm not talking about the form being submitted multiple times, but each element being bundled up three times within a single POST operation.

I've upped my logging to watch for this to make sure I'm really getting the data three times and it isn't something I'm doing. I can't see how it is something I'm doing, though.

It didn't really affect much. I sanitize pretty carefully. We only noticed because a couple of the elements allow multiple values and the same value showed up three times rather than three different values.

This one is new to me!
