    AJAX, Firefox and innerHTML

    Hi everybody!

    The function below puts data in two HTML div containers on a webpage. In Internet Explorer, it works perfectly. However in Firefox, it only works for the "bookedShifts" div container - nothing appears in the second container?? If I uncomment the alert statement however, all the correct HTML is correctly stored in responseText, so I have no idea why innerHTML didnt put it in there! Anybody got any suggestions? Thanks very much for your help!

        function updateShifts() {
          /* Update booked shifts section */
          var xhoBooked=GetXmlHttpObject();
          if (!xhoBooked) {
            alert( "This browser does not support the technology required to use this website.");
            return false;
          url = "phplib.php?function=updateBookedShifts";
          var bookedShiftsContainer = document.getElementById('bookedShifts');
          xhoBooked.onreadystatechange = function() {
            if ( xhoBooked.readyState == 4 ) {
              bookedShiftsContainer.innerHTML = xhoBooked.responseText;
 "GET", url, true );
          xhoBooked.send( null );    
          /* Update available shifts section */
          var xhoAvail=GetXmlHttpObject();
          if (!xhoAvail) {
            alert( "This browser does not support the technology required to use this website.");
            return false;
          url = "phplib.php?function=updateAvailShifts";
          var availShiftsContainer = document.getElementById('availShifts');
          xhoAvail.onreadystatechange = function() {
            if ( xhoAvail.readyState == 4 ) {
              availShiftsContainer.innerHTML = xhoAvail.responseText;
              //alert( xhoAvail.responseText );
 "GET", url, true );
          xhoAvail.send( null );

    Get FireBug - it will help you debug the issue. Set a breakpoint where the problem is, and things will become clear.

    there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the code. maybe you can show us more, in case the error is in another location?
