Please help me really not able to understand why same code not working in FF which same service working in chrome and getting results perfectly.

not able to understand why same code not working in FF which same service working in chrome

Because they are different browsers and the APIs for addons are not identical.

Can you suggest solutions for that. Really I am struggling to get solutions for that. Appreciate your help Eric.

Hello Praveen,

Your code is difficult to read because you didn’t format it. But here are my questions so far:

  1. You are using jQuery. Are you sure the jquery module is getting loaded into your addon?
  2. You mentioned, “in Firefox same code giving error Message” but you did not mention the error message. What is it?
  3. You have console.log in your code, along with alert(). I would definitely remove alert(). What messages do you see in the console log, if any?
  4. Your jquery.ajax() data property contains javascript code. I haven’t seen that before. Are you sure that works? (It may be fine, I’m just saying that I’m not used to seeing that and want you to be sure it doesn’t cause an error)
