Your php script is apparently looking for $_GET['submit'].  Submitting 
the form without clicking Submit in IE sends the text field, but not the 
submit value, whereas FF and others will include the submit value by 
default (IE's behavior seems more correct to me in this case).  Try 
something like:
if (!empty($_GET) && $_GET['agent_name']) {
	//do the search
} else {
	//show error msg, ignore request, etc.
