3.0 beta 2

Trouble with new 2.0 beta and Firefox

Hi Guys,

I am pointing to a http source that dumps CSV. works in IE but does not work in Firefox 1.0.6

Generates the following Error:

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

any ideas?

Wait until FireFox is a release 2 candidate.

Same error in the latest version FireFox and AW Beta3.

That's a pretty serious problem.

Just to add that it didn't work with 1.0.7 of Firefox either.

Do what I did and use the native HTTPRequest built into FireFox and not the AW version. I have a function I use for all browsers to do "AJAX" that has worked well for me:

function myHTTPRequest(url) {
    req = false;
    // branch for native XMLHttpRequest object
    if(window.XMLHttpRequest) {
      try {
        req = new XMLHttpRequest();
      }
      catch(e) {
        req = false;
      }
      // branch for IE/Windows ActiveX version
      }
    else
      if(window.ActiveXObject) {
       	try {
        	req = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
      	    }
        catch(e) {
        	try {
          		req = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
        	    }
                catch(e)
                    {
          		req = false;
        	    }
          }
    }
    if(req)
        {
    req.open("GET", url, false);
    req.send("");
             return req.responseText;
        }
}

Thanks Jim.

As I am using HTTPRequest through the AW.XML.Table.setURL that would mean patching that method?

Karl,

are you trying to send request to a different domain/subdomain/port? Firefox and IE have very different rules for cross-domain security and what works in IE not necessarily works in FF and vice versa.
