Default Gecko browsers and PayPal 'Buy Now'

On one of my sites, I sell classifieds using Almond Classifieds (a PHP script). Payment for the ads is via a PayPal Buy Now button, which works well for IE and Oracle on the PC, and Safari on the Mac. But with Firefox, Mozilla and Netscape, clicking on the Buy Now button bypasses the entire PayPal experience, and the advertiser is taken to the Receipt page and invited to create the ad.

This is costing me money. I've put a request in to PayPal for some assistance, but last time I did that, I received no e-mail reply - just the follow-up asking me how well they'd satisfied my request.

Here is the code for the button. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it isn't working in Gecko browsers only?

<p><a href=pmgtw.php>
<form action='https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr' method='post'>
<input type='hidden' name='cmd' value='_xclick'>
<input type='hidden' name='business' value='ann.clarkson@wintercourt.com.au'>
<input type='hidden' name='item_name' value='Classified ads'>
<input type='hidden' name='amount' value='22.00'>
<input type='hidden' name='return' value='http://www.dressageit.com/classifieds/pmgtw.php'>
<input type='hidden' name='no_note' value='1'>
<input type='hidden' name='currency_code' value='AUD'>
<input type='image' src='https://www.paypal.com/en_US/i/btn/x-click-butcc.gif' border='0' name='submit' alt='Make payments with PayPal - it's fast, free and secure!'>

I've been an evangelist for Firefox in the forums on this site, so many of the potential advertisers are now staunch Firefox users.
