Your bug looks like it could be this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=313646 "synchronous XMLHttpRequest does not fire 'readystatechange' event" I believe they plan to fix it when they can.
bug 313646 is about something else. At least per summary this bug is about the 'this', though seems like this is about scope. Anyway, this is code which has changed since 3.0. Anyone willing to re-try with 3.1beta ? And a minimal working testcase would be great.
Well, bug 313646 is definitely a problem here because his "newLink" variable won't get set in synchronous mode... So maybe you have two problems then? Both can be worked around though by FF users like me, so that's the good news. (I posted a source example over at 313646 if anybody needs; plugged snippets of it in the above example and seems to work fine). And just wondered but isn't the example code above enough of a test case?? But good luck, I know you guys are deluged with bug reports. Hope somebody on the ff dev team payroll can fix this other user's bug somehow.
