      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

      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

      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,

            In fact, it turns out to be a known bug that somehow made it back into
            the build for 2.0.0.4:

            Good to know we're not all going too crazy.
