As others have said, this is most likely a javascript problem. Check  
it with firebug and make sure that you don't have a general javascript  
error. If firebug isn't showing an error in the console then the first  
thing I'd check for is a trailing comma on the last property of an  
object. e.g.

var myObject = {
	foo: 'bar',
	bar: 'baz',

The comma after 'baz' will cause IE to choke but not firefox.
