FF params

View:
<form id="search_form">
<%= text_field_tag :search_id, "", :id=>"search_id" %>

<%= link_to_remote "Search", :url=>{:controller=>"search", :action =>
"query"}, :with => "'search_id=' + $('search_id').serialize() -%>
</form>

Controller:
render :update do |page|
        page.redirect_to :action => "show",
          :q1=>params[:search_id],
          :q2=>params[:search_title],
          :q3=>params[:search_author],
          :q4=>params[:search_tags],
          :q5=>params[:search_date_from],
          :q6=>params[:search_date_to]
    end

(IE7) works fine, but in (FF3.0)...the params are
nil...params[:search_id] for instance

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

That's because that will generate a query string that looks like
search_id=search_id=something
because serialize returns key=value strings.
just :with => "$('search_id').serialize()
will do
