For some reason i cant see to get even the most basic ajax via vs 2008, to work in FF. It works fine in ie but not here.

The code seems to run - but it doesnt get shown in the UI - and i just end up getting a timeout error?

I'm i missing anything obivous here? and is there an easy way to get this working?

Thanks
Paul

Did you post the correct FireFox version?
If yes, that version has to be at least a couple years old....
I don't have any problems (directly relating to Ajax anyway) using Firefox 3.0.7

Yes that the right version - i.e. 2.0.0.20 however my laptops only a year old and ajax been around much longer i guess?

But either way - are you suggesting that this version of FF doesnt support Ajax?

The code you posted is simple enough...and I don't see anything wrong with it.
And as you say it works in IE....I would at least try making sure FireFox is up to date.

Ajax has been around longer than a year...but keep in mind that when you're using ASP.Net and Visual Studio...you are using Microsoft's implementation of AJAX, not truly "pure" Ajax.
And you're using the latest version of Microsoft ajax (3.5) when using VS2008....so I wouldn't be that surprised if the "newest Microsoft technology" is somewhat incompatible with older browsers...

Thanks but the problem i have is - upgrading to the latest version of FF isnt the anwser - as i need to simulate - end users, and as such account for users using this version FF.

So with that in mind i'm looking for a workaround - as i've yet to confirm if this is the case and/or if i can find a solution to this problem.

I understand...we have a very rigorous compatibility requirement also...our app has to support IE (version 7 and now 8), FireFox (Win/Mac), Safari (Win/Mac), Opera, and now Chrome...but we don't support any browser that's a whole major version behind the current version...you have to draw the line somewhere...

I created a test page with your exact code and it works fine in:
FireFox 3.07
Chrome 1.0x
IE 8
Opera 9.64
and Safari 4(beta) and 3..Win and Mac
