      davehaber,

      Could you send a URL where you believe YUI is inserting "xx" on a page?

      I have downloaded the update and run through many of the YUI examples on the website and didn't see anything anomalous, although we don't have a lot of <select> elements in our examples.  

      Regards,
      Eric

      Anybody notice any problems with YUI after the Firefox auto-update that
      happened earlier today?

      I am building a page with some events on drop down boxes and a wait
      screen, and now my YUI wait screen, which was working perfectly before,
      now puts an "xx" inside every selectbox on the page.

      I don't see this in MSIE, and I'm sure I didn't see it in Firefox
      before today's update.

      This may be to soon to ask, but any idea of a work-around for something
      like this?

      Thanks.

        OK. It took me a little while because I'm having the actual trouble
        on an internal tool, but I've set up a functional demo of what I'm
        doing on an outside server:

        http://www.davidhaber.com/yuitest.html

        Error behavior: Select anything in any of the three drop-down boxes.
        The empty select boxes will change from empty to "xx".

        To see the page actually do some ajax and json: In the make dropdown,
        select "Ford" or "Chevrolet". The "alternate make" select box will
        automatically change to some corresponding makes. In the "new model"
        dropdown, "Cadillac Escalade" will cause the new model select box to
        change.

        I have confirmed, with this exact same page, it does not have
        the "xx" problem in Firefox 2.0.0.3 or any version of MSIE. This
        problem only occurs with Firefox 2.0.0.4 which came out yesterday
        morning.

        Any light you can shed on this would be most appreciated. Thanks!

        Dave, I don t have a good answer for you, but I don t think YUI (or even your own scripts) are the issue here. 1. Take your file and strip out all of the YUI

          Dave,

          I don't have a good answer for you, but I don't think YUI (or even your own scripts) are the issue here.

          1.  Take your file and strip out all of the YUI components and your own scripts and CSS.
          2.  Load the file in FF 2.0.0.4 with Firebug
          3.  Go to the inspect mode and the HTML tab

          For me, immediately I see the XX in those selects.  FireBug's DOM inspection doesn't show us any contents of the <select>, but the XX's are still showing up.

          The XX's can show up even with FireBug disabled, so I doubt it's FireBug's issue, either.

          It seems to me I can make the effect go away just by adding an empty <option> </option> to the <select>s that are exhibiting that behavior.

          Regards,
          Eric

          Excellent sleuthing, thanks! Any idea why it seems that using the YUI show() function seems to uncover the problem?

            No, no more than why the FireBug inspect functionality would do so. Adding the empty probably works in either case, though. Regards, Eric

              Ever since HTML 3, SELECT objects have required at least one OPTION element, so it must be something in FF 2.0.0.4 that is error checking on that. In fact,
