I'm facing problem with firefoxd while showing XML data in HTML page.

I link an XML in an HTML document and write code to get different data element from that XML file. When I use Internet Explorer, it works and shows the required output, whereas, Firefox doesn't show data when the same page is viewed in it. Currently I'm using Firefox 2.0.0.1. I'm unable to understand the behaviour of Firefox. What is this and what should I do?

    There is probably a compatability issue. Many browsers are different in some of the objects or methods they support. Also, some browsers tolerate different coding bugs than others so maybe there is a problem in your code that only FireFox is telling you about.

    I suggest looking at the JavaScript console of FireFox to see if there are any messages logged there. That log can very precisely identify the problem.
    These links can help you view the console:
