Trouble with new 2.0 beta and Firefox

More information on this topic is available in the documentation section: /general.faq.releases/.

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"urlfalse);
    
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.
