Good call Tanner, should have tried that earlier. It does think its
an Object. This time when I changed it to

validDataType = validDataTypeRegEx.exec(oElement.name)[0];

It came back as a string, and works fine now. I've noticed some
really odd behavior with FireFox lately in holding onto old variables
and versions of pages. I don't know if its a memory issue or what,
but quite a few times it has led me to believe I have an error or an
old page when I don't. Going to have to use NS7 for scripting now
until they iron that out :/
