The name is what determines the name of the key that the server receives, so when you have two inputs whose names are selectedLocationOids, then clicking both causes one to be overwritten. To illustrate, when I submit your form, my server receives: Submitting with neither box checked Parameters: {"commit"Create", "authenticity_token"1vYLmUq7Yc52/Z8Gum2qxQz9i2YyXYL0+/4AEu434Wg Submitting with the first box checked Parameters: {"commit"Create", "selectedLocationOids"0000025354000000630d", "authenticity_token"1vYLmUq7Yc52/Z8Gum2qxQz9i2YyXYL0+/4AEu434Wg Submitting with the second box checked Parameters: {"commit"Create", "selectedLocationOids"000002527100000062bc", "authenticity_token"1vYLmUq7Yc52/Z8Gum2qxQz9i2YyXYL0+/4AEu434Wg Submitting with both boxes checked Parameters: {"commit"Create", "selectedLocationOids"000002527100000062bc", "authenticity_token"1vYLmUq7Yc52/Z8Gum2qxQz9i2YyXYL0+/4AEu434Wg You can see that that even with both boxes checked, only receive one value, because they both have the same name. It might help you to read up on how hash tables work (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_table) * I'm on a Mac, so I can't check your example, but I'm not sure what "ie" is. It looks like a variable ,but could be a method. If it is a method, I don't see anything like it for Firefox, and their examples do not seem to behave the way you have used it (http://watir.com/examples/) If it is a variable, then where was it initialized? It looks like you need to say ie Browser.start("http://your-url.com") --001485f7c16e047d630487084d5c--
