would you mind to provide better details to understand what is the problem?

When I click on one of the smileys or the wheels (see capture.jpg) after having filled a test case with execution details, in Firefox I get the error "submit is not defined" (see capture2.jpg) in the console and nothing happens (test case is not refreshed and updated when I click on a smiley or I don't go to next test case when I click on a wheel).

However as I was saying by clicking "Move to the next test case" after clicking wheel or smiley I do go to the next test case and the status of the origin test case is correctly saved (passed, failed or blocking).

Thanks for the details, now it will be possible to try to understand what is happening.
It would be possible for you to test (may be) with a portable firefox version < 55 ?

I've been having the same error and , as you suggested, I've tested with portable firefox 52.0.2 and the error continue happening. There are some news about this?? Thanks for all!

I just installed the latest Firefox version and tested it again, problem remains, so it's not the specific firefox version at fault. I'll check the php version.

UPDATE: php is v. 5.5.9, so this might be the cause. We'll have to migrate to a different server in order to upgrade to latest php - I'll post an update when we're done

Tested with PHP 7.0 and FF 5.4.1 the problem remains, so it's either not PHP or the problem is fixed in php 7.1 ? (we currently can't update to 7.1)
any other ideas?

Unfortunately, after upgrading to 1.9.16 GA we were facing the same problem. PHP 5.5.34 or 7.0.22; FF52 ESR or 57.

After a little investigation I could find a quick fix for Firefox: the smiley-buttons contain JS in their onclick attribute:

If you alter the "submit();" part to a full object path "document.forms['execSetResults'].submit();" then it instantly works with Firefox. The change is according to Mozilla documentation found here: [^]

I will install a staging instance next week including this change to check if it still works with Chrome. But I'm confident. :)

I have same issue as described for TestLink v1.9.16 from Bitnami in Firefox v58. I see errors in dev console:

ReferenceError: submit is not defined (on click) /testlink/lib/execute/execSetResults.php:4:25

At the same time it works with Chrome v64.0.3282.119

I have identified the affected file:

/gui/templates/execute/inc_exec_img_controls.tpl (rows 93 and 108)

It seems like in the meantime (since release of 1.9.16 GA), there has been a change of submit trigger for the buttons. Originally, the same fix as proposed by me in my comment above has been committed to GitHub - but now commented out in favour of a new submit method called "doSubmitForHTML5();"

So the (usual) recommendation seems to be true once again: Upgrade to the latest GitHub version if you can. Currently, it's not a possible option for us to do so, therefore we need to keep the "GA" and patch manually.

HTH anyone out there.

Workaround "document.forms['execSetResults'].submit();"
tested with FF quantum 58.0.1 64 bits (works),
Chrome 63.0.3239.132 64 bits (works), PHP 5.6.11, MySQL 5.6.25
(actually it is XAMPP 5.6.11 on Windows).
TL is 1.9.16 downloaded from SourceForge on 2018-02-01
Apparently SourceForge version is from 2017-01-21

@hgc2002: Please note that my workaround doesn't work with mandatory custom fields for test execution.

Unfortunately, I found the ticket 7886 after my previous comment. And 7886 is the cause why the more complicated "doSubmitForHTML5();" had been introduced in favour of the simple submit qualifier.

See the following commit for a full list of changes: [^]

We have a staging instance, running 1.9.16 GA with only replacement of the 5 files from the commit mentioned above. And it seems to do fine.

@dr.jorge: can you please confirm that issue on latest code is fixed ?

Did a quick check this morning:

1. wget of latest github & install
2. Create 2 test cases, fill testplan and start
3. checked all six buttons of execution (including the "move to next" variants)
(Note: did tests as admin, but this shouldn't affect general behavior)

Environment: Win7 with FF 52.6 ESR 32bit and FF 57.0.3 Portable 64bit

Result: for me everything seems to do fine. Any github release after 19.03.2017 shouldn't have this issue any longer.
