HTML Question

why don't I see a date selector with firefox?

The following HTML generates a date selector on chrome :

<html>
<head> <title> </title> </head>
<body>
<form>
<input type="date" />
</form>
</body>




enter image description here

but it shows a simple text-field on
firefox 19.0.2
. Why is that ? Is it that firefox doesn't support all the featurs of
HTML 5
?

Yes, FireFox doesn't support all HTML 5 features. For example FireFox 19 doesn't support the date field.
