[thelist] Ajax redux - another problem this time with FireFox!

Hi Tom,

No direct experience, but this page may throw some light on the subject:

I believe it's a security measure to prevent Cross-Site-Scripting, so there may be some issue about the script making a call from one domain to another. Seeing as there's a difference from work to home, I'd guess that something at home is making FF think the call and receive scripts are on different domains...

My 2c anyway,

Egad, just when you thought it was ready...you get this:

"Error: uncaught exception: Permission denied to call method XMLHttpRequest.open"

This is in FireFox 1.5. It worked perfectly at work in FF, but I come home and begin to implement
it, and now it fails in FF at home. The script is in the same domain, so I don't get why this
would happen...any ideas on how to debug this? Now it works just fine in IE - I'm getting too old
for this!
