I've a textarea with id="performance" and when I make: var perf = $('#performance').val() the value returned is '[object Performance]'. This thing happens only with Firefox 7. I've tried with Explorer, Chrome and other version of Firefox and result it's correct. Is a Firefox's bug or a jquery bug?

The problem is that the variable that contains the value must have a different name from the id. Ex. name = $('#name').val() name = '[object Name]';

n = $('#name').val() n contains the correct value of textarea with id name
