In some cases, a form with absolute path in the action is handled incorrectly in Internet Explorer 7, 8, and 9. The resulting action path is wrong and the form cannot be submitted.


The impact of this issue is that the web application can not work as expected.


This issue occurs under these conditions: HTML Form with absolute action path; a tag with id=action inside this form; IE7-9


This issue has no workaround at this time.
