anyway.. In offline testing I can create requests ONLY in IE... in online tests I can create requests ONLY in FF. :| my js file doesn't change, I always request a local (same folder) file... ee.
It's annoying.. I figured the FF problem would go away when I put the file online, as these things do with FF, but I didn't expect the IE one to start failing.
Does anyone have experience of using the XMLHttpRequest object in IE6, in an online environment? The only reason I can see this being restricted is that IE has the worst (non-existant) local-file-system protection imaginable, and MS decided its better to be safe than sorry (sadly, all in the wrong order). Do any IE7 users know if this works in 7? From the Beta; I hate IE7, and I know if I download it that it'll systematically destroy my computer's knowledge of IE6...
