I have a code which sends data to 3rd party website using JavaScript XMLHTTP POST and puts output in textbox for user.

It works on IE but in Firefox 3 I get permission denied, it's because I call to 3rd party website, what can I do?

What's solution for it?

Thanks from now!

Yes

create a new page on your server called proxyPage.php and call YOUR proxyPage.php instead of the third party page directly. Assuming you are sending username="Joe" to YOUR proxyPage.php, then your script would be:

<?php
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, 'http://www.remotesite.com/script.php');
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "username=" . urlencode($_REQUEST['username']) );
$data = curl_exec($ch);
curl_close($ch);

//now send the result back to the ajax call:
echo $data;
exit;
?>

find out if you can make outbound calls. If not, you have reached a dead end. Some webhost companies do NOT allow outbound connections.
If you ARE in fact allowed to make outbound connections, see what other alternatives you have ex: is this an IIS server, if so you may be able to use a MSXML2.Server object. If you are in a non-windows environment, then see if they have perl available and seek a perl solution.
