jQuery doesn’t load in Firefox

Hello all,

Last day I had a problem with jQuery and Firefox. I had to create a drop-down menu and it worked perfectly fine in Safari and IE but not in Firefox.

My code looked like this:

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/jquery-1.4.4.min.js”/>

//some jQuery code


The problem is that Firefox wants <script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/jquery-1.4.4.min.js”></script> and not <script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/jquery-1.4.4.min.js”/>.

Hope this helps,

    Of course it doesn’t like the self-terminating syntax. That’s because the HTML tag is defined as requiring a closing tag (it’s incorrect to use it as a self-terminating tag).

    FireFox does a better job adhering to standards than most other browsers, so FF gave you the trouble.
