Hello, I wrote this little piece of script.. but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out why and how it's now failing in IE but not FF.... this is the bit I think is the issue..


loadPastSearch();
$("select[name='Species'],input[name='breed'],select[name='Gender'],select[name='Pet_Friendly'],select[name='Child_Friendly'],input[name='Good_with_Children'],input[name='Good_with_Cats'],input[name='Good_with_Dogs'],input[name='Housetrained']").live('change',function() {                        
  var obj=$(this);
  pushSearch(obj);
  if(refinIt){refinment(obj);}
  alert('test');
});



but I pasted the whole lot below... now.. here is the twist.... it works in IE here..
http://www.petrescueville.com/index.php?page=home

but fails here
http://www.petrescueville.com/index.php?page=search 

I'm sure it's something simple.. any ideas? Thank you for the help.. Cheers -Jeremy

I think you call the same script twice and it causes the problem

<script src="scripts/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.petrescueville.com/uploads/lib/SD-temp/groupID/1.js?1289264665"></script> // <--- this line should be removed since it's called at the end of the page

Try to move <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.petrescueville.com/uploads/lib/SD-temp/groupID/1.js?xyz"></script>
to below <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.petrescueville.com/uploads/lib/SD-temp/scriptID/1.js?xyz"></script>

I saved your search page to local and your script works again either when I remove that /groupID/1.js or move it to below /scriptID/1.js
