Please assist me with javascript code that works in all instances

Issue 1:-

the buttons are not submit buttons.. instead on clicking dat button it calls a fnformsubmit() userdfnd funtion..

Issue 2:--
even after d response cums the wait msg window doesnt close.. it hangs in d backgrnd..

The foll code is used in the footer.jsp file... Please assist...

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/os/jquery-1.5.1.min.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/os/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.min.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="/js/os/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.css">

<script type="text/javascript">

for (var i = 0; i < document.links.length; i++) {
var attrib = document.links[i];
if (attrib.addEventListener) {
attrib.addEventListener('click', attachModalDialog, false);
} else if (attrib.attachEvent) {
attrib.attachEvent('onclick', attachModalDialog);

function attachModalDialog(evt) {
//alert('for Click event.');

Please speak English - I do not follow what you are saying. You say that it works in some instances but not in others. Please give examples of both.

What is ModalDialog? You did not declare it anywhere. Or did you mean
