Why does my Web Handler work with Internet Explorer, but not with Firefox

I am trying to develop a web page that uses the Simile Timeline (http://code.google.com/p/simile-widgets/wiki/Timeline) with data from SQL Server.

In initial testing of my timeline I tested it with Example.xml, a static XML file in the correct format to be event data. I wrote the following in the appropriate place within mytimeline's Javascript: -

   var WebHandler = "Example.xml"
   tl.loadXML(WebHandler, function (xml, url) { eventSourceFamily.loadXML(xml, url) });

This worked fine with both Firefox and Internet Explorer. I then changed the assignment to

   var WebHandler = "GDBTimeline.ashx?Type=Family&Userid=" + getControlValue("input", "hdnUser");

so that invoked a web handler that could look up the SQL database and return the XML that I wanted, and wrote this web handler.

This works perfectly with Internet Explorer, but with FireFox the timeline band is blank. Yet when I examine the http traffic with Fiddler2 (http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/) I see that with either browser there is a response from URL

  /GDB_pages/GDBTimeline.ashx?Type=Family&Userid=robertb

that returns the XML that it is supposed to.

I have previously used web handlers with Firefox before, with no problems. The Fiddler results conclusively show that the web handler is invoked, and returns the appropriate XML, and this XML is identical to the XML from the static test with Example.xml.

Where do I start looking for answers? I don't even know if this is a Simile problem, a Firefox problem, or an ASP.NET problem.

Thank you, Robert.

I have a mac. At first the browser was really slow and the spinning circle would not go away. I forced quit. When I opened the browser most of my tabs with sites came back except a few although when I clicked on them the showed the web address that was there. So I closed them and tried re-typing and the address but it would not connect, it just stayed on the new blank tab. Firefox has been really slow over the past few months and it keeps crashing.

Locking duplicate thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/881587]

After going through and updating Ubuntu 10 to Ubuntu 11 and when I was going to import my Bookmarks from previous version and come to find out that there is no Import and Backup to be able to Import html bookmark file. There is no Import and Backup what so ever in this version of Firefox. What's the deal? I can't give any Technical info because there is no errors.

Since I updated to your Firefox 7 there is no interoperability with Roboform!!?? What's up? What are you and they planning to do about it?

   Also you have been producing many new version of Firefox recently, but with all of them I continue to have very significant interference with Norton Symantec programs, very serious problems with your scripts which run endessly and which one has to stop or stop Firefox itself completely.
    Your plug-in module also often starts up and then takes interminably long to load.    All in all after Java (whose add-on I have disabled for Firefox) which I need to use for an online job I do, but for which I use Internet Explorer, yours is the slowest program, and the one that causes the most problems and interferences of all the programs I have loaded on my laptop...

Sincerely,

Mark Epstein

I was alerted to new version when Ubuntu upgraded yesterday; this morning I did manual upgrade on Windows 7, and all my saved passwords and bookmarks are gone. History seems to be complete, and somehow this morning (without my noticing any crash) Firefox prompted me to restore the previous session, and then gave me windows from yesterday.

The content loads, but the blue circle is constantly spinning on the tab of every website I open. It's not my internet connection because Firefox works on my brother's macbook, and everything else internet related works absolutely fine. Just Firefox never fully loads anything.
