dynamic API URL feed - reading cross domain feed content

I am trying to read a cross-domain feed URL using the following code,

<script type="text/javascript">
            function processStateChange(){
                    statusDiv = document.getElementById("feed");
                    if (req.readyState == 0){ statusDiv.innerHTML = "UNINITIALIZED"; }
                    if (req.readyState == 1){ statusDiv.innerHTML = "LOADING"; }
                    if (req.readyState == 2){ statusDiv.innerHTML = "LOADED"; }
                    if (req.readyState == 3){ statusDiv.innerHTML = "INTERACTIVE"; }
                    if (req.readyState == 4){
                      statusDiv.innerHTML = "COMPLETE";
                      statusDiv.innerHTML = req.responseText;
            function getXMLObject() //XML OBJECT
                        xmlHttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
                  catch (e)
                              xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
                        catch (e)
                                    xmlHttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
                                    catch (e)
                                          return false;
                  return xmlHttp;
$(document).ready(function() {
            req = new getXMLObject();
            if (req) {
                req.onreadystatechange = processStateChange;
      "GET", "", true);

The above code reads the feed correctly in IE (Msxml2.XMLHTTP), but FF and other browsers does not pull up the feed data.

Can any one of you help me in fixing this.
