I'm not sure what's going on here. The first html code block is a basic test page containing the iframe, the second code block is the src for the iframe. Not sure why the iframe is empty in Firefox. It is displaying in IE8.

If it matters, these files are both local files not on a server of any kind.

If you set the iFrame src to a non-existent page, do you see an error inside the iFrame?

The only thing I can think of is maybe a typo in the src filename. Wild stab in the dark through !

Well, strangely enough, I disable Firebug, refreshed the page and it worked. Then I reactivated Firebug and it still works. Makes no sense...
