1) Script Title: Dynamic Ajax Content

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxcontent.htm

3) Describe problem:
I have this script working as I would like using drop downs to select the page(s) and a GO button to exceute.

I am Calling an absolute external URL in the drop down code:

<select id="ajaxmenu" size="1">
<option value="" selected >Select Link</option>
<option value='http://www.somewebsite.com/index.php'>Link 1</option>

in IE everything works 100&#37;; IN firefox ( nothing happens. I changed it to an internal url and it works fine. Seems that Firefox does not like the external http://www call ??

Can anyone suggest a work around or fix ?

thank you.

p.s I did read this: "Note: Due to security limitations, the external pages loaded must be from the same domain as the encompassing page. Any external .css and .js files associated with these pages, however, can be from any domain." But since IE worked I thought there might be a way around in Firefox.

Shucks! I probably should have made the title less generic...

Does anyone have any ideas?
