use $.ajax (or use jQuery.ajaxSetup) to make a synchrone ajax call :

function runAjaxCap(mycode) {
	//$("#captchacatcher")
	var xaa='';
	xaa='parser3.php?code='+mycode;	
	var fileContents = jQuery.ajax({ "url":xaa "async":false }).responseText;
        jQuery("#captchacatcher").html(fileContents); 
}

Open in new window

try:
function runAjaxCap(mycode) {
//force it to wait for get completion
jQuery.ajaxSetup({async:false});
	//$("#captchacatcher")
	var xaa='';
	xaa='parser3.php?code='+mycode;	
	jQuery.get(xaa,function(fileContents){jQuery("#captchacatcher").html(fileContents);});

//restore default so it won't "break/interfere" with other ajax calls
jQuery.ajaxSetup({async:true});

}

Open in new window

var fileContents = jQuery.ajax({ "url":xaa "async":false }).responseText;

add a comma after xaa

var fileContents = jQuery.ajax({ "url":xaa, "async":false }).responseText;
