      Description

      Because of the way FF treats Strings (IE casts a result to the right type), Firefox doesn't always work with SCORM packages, ie. scores are not stored.
      I suggest the culprit is the code:

      elementmodel = element.replace(expression,'.n.');

      in the various datamodel files, for example there are 4 occurrences in scorm_12.js.php.
      Replacing this with

      elementmodel = String(element).replace(expression,'.n.');

      makes it "Firefox-compliant"

      This is the case for moodle 1.6 through 1.8.

      I suggest we make this change to the code, as it surely doesn't affect compatibility with IE.
