firefox doesn't display text in div


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have a problem with my ajax script. It works fine in IE7 and IE8, but somehow fails in FF3.


It supposed to fetch the words "no news" from this page:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="ajax process">
<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="ajax process">

$myserver ="myserver";
$myname = "myname";
$mypassword = "mypassword";

$con = mysql_connect("$myserver","$myname","$mypassword");
if (!$con)
  die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
else {

$mydb ="shugonl";

$selector = mysql_select_db($mydb, $con);
if (!$selector)
  die('Could not select database: ' . mysql_error());
else {

$cresultnews = mysql_query("SELECT COUNT(*) AS newscount FROM news");
$crownews = mysql_fetch_array($cresultnews);
$newsbank = $crownews[newscount];

if ($newsbank <1)
  $response = "No news";
$mresultnews = mysql_query("SELECT MAX(newsID) AS latest FROM news WHERE newscat ='1'");
$mrownews = mysql_fetch_array($mresultnews);
$newsid = $mrownews[latest];

$resultnews = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM news WHERE newsID ='$newsid'");
$rownews = mysql_fetch_array($resultnews);
$newstitle = $rownews['newstitle'];
$newsdate = $rownews['newsdate'];
  $response ="<I>".$newsdate."</I> ".$newstitle;


/*output response*/
echo $response;



and then display the words "no news" at this page:



when you hover your mouse over the "News" head. Like I said it works fine with IE, but fails with FF. Apparently this is something that FF doesn't support, or I am doing something wrong. Does anyone have a solution to my problem? If so please share your solution with me.


thanks again for your help

uhm sorry the title is a bit misleading I think, it supposed to display it in a <P> namely: <P id="ticker" class="ticker"></P>


my apologies for that


but i also tried it with just DIV on another page and it's not working in FF there either...


so again what am I doing wrong? and what work around method  is there to solve this problem? (preferable an easy and simple solution as unlike php, javascript is not really my strength)


I don't want to use textfields as that would look ugly, but there has got to be something, right? I mean support of features in FF can't be really that bad, right?
