jQuery conflict in Internet Explorer

What is the correct way to get this script to not have conflicts in Internet Explorer? I've tried removing all other scripts from the site for testing, but this particular script still does not run correctly in Internet Explorer.
	var url = jQuery("input.seo-url");
	var ref = jQuery("input[name=ref]");
	var url_form = jQuery("form[id=analyze]");
	var results = jQuery("#results");
	var throbber = jQuery('#throbber');
//	var content = jQuery('#content');
	// Form AJAX
		results.load(seourl, {"url": url.val(), "output": "html", "ref": ref.val() }, function(){
			// Activate the email form
				jQuery.post( jQuery('#email_form').attr('action')
					, { email: jQuery('input[name=email]').val() }, function(data){

I'm not 100% sure what the problem is, but your .load() references seourl as the url, but this variable is not instantiated anywhere (it appears to be var url)...

That's assigned earlier in the header area by the plugin.

Problem is IE. You can view and test here: http://www.seoautomatic.com/unique-tools/instant-seo-review/

But test in both firefox and IE. In FF you can see the loading graphic, but in IE it basically reloads the page and the loading graphic doesn't appear.

I can't identify any of this programming on the page you reference...

It's all in a plugin. But I've been able to confirm that the script of the plugin that I've posted above is where the jQuery fails in IE. It's definitely stopping in that script, which also stops any other jQuery that might need to run.

I'm not very familiar with jQuery to start with, but it's more confusing that it runs and works fine in FireFox and Chrome - but fails in only IE (both 7 and 8).

I was hoping that someone could point out in the above script what is incompatible with IE. I found tons of other people having issues with the .load function - but none of the suggestions given on those forums worked for me.
IE is less forgiving with programming errors in my experience (ie, if you fail to instantiate a variable with var in front of it, or forget a ; or the like). Maybe try changing return(false); to return false;

Tried. That didn't work for me either. In IE the loading graphic will still show and when the results are ready, the do not show.

(I have an intentional error on the site now so that the tool will work and show the results.)
Does the information coming back from the request have an application type in the header? If no application type is defined, IE may not treat it correctly, although Firefox will.
DzynitAuthor Commented:
When it's just hiding and showing the div with the info in it, how does the application type affect it? Wouldn't that cause a "headers already sent" error?

Sorry - I just don't understand the jQuery but had to take over on this plugin. The rest of the plugin doesn't deal much with the jQuery.
DzynitAuthor Commented:
I ended up printing all the templates and files that are used in the results so I could read them like a book and highlight through it. And it did turn out to be formatting errors.

So thanks much for your help pointing things out.
