Is this AdRotate.aspx your coding page, i mean have you developed this, as if you see the source of firefox browser output, it is starting with
<HTML>
<head>
</head>
<body>

whereas it should start with <?xml .....> stuff. So, i guess this page AdRotate.aspx has something to do with client browser request Or else the other possible thing is your firefox browser isnt supporting xml format
check for supporting xml broswers in below link with your's.

BeenSwank you should Definitely get your code compliance checked.

I know that generally IE is very standards compliant, sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse.

Making sure that your code is standards compliant is the first step in debugging!

Did you just post live data containing Business names, account numbers, addresses, telephone numbers, associated advertising URL's and more? I think you did.....
You may want to take that down real soon. No threat. Just saying.

The business details are no different than what you would find in a telephone directory, as for URNs (Universal Resource Numbers) these are likewise publicly available (and passed as URL parameters) likewise account numbers - just unique IDs for advertisers, again public data.

No, I did not author the aspx pages, we brought used a third party development company.

Then i guess you will have to contact them and ask if their pages are supporting xml in FF.
