Strange problem cropped up today. Using SS 2.2.2 with FireFox 3- I can login to the admin, but as soon as I try to open a page from the tree it just hangs (won't finish loading) and FireBug gives me this error...

ActiveXObject is undefined

in jsparty/prototype.js

var Ajax = {
650 getTransport: function() {
651 return Try.these(
652 function() {return new ActiveXObject('Msxml2.XMLHTTP')},
653 function() {return new ActiveXObject('Microsoft.XMLHTTP')},
654 function() {return new XMLHttpRequest()}
655 ) || false;
656 },

I get the above error when drag and drop reordering is unchecked. If I check drag and drop reordering and try to reload the page I get a different error.

$("Form_EditorToolbarLinkForm").respondToModeChange is not a function

in jsparty/tiny_mce2/tiny_mce_src.js

 try {
1835 $('Form_EditorToolbarLinkForm').respondToNodeChange();
1836 $('Form_EditorToolbarImageForm').respondToNodeChange();
1837 } catch(ex) {}

I need some help to direct me to where I should look for the problem, as I don't recall doing anything that would affect this - my last changes were adding a new page with some javascript in the templates, but I erased it and still the same errors after a flush and db/build.

I am only experiencing this on one of my ss sites and it works without throwing up errors in Safari.

Thanks for any help.

Here is some more info...

The function that the page is getting stuck on is "getPageFromServer()" which is in cms/javascript/LeftAndMain_right.js on line 276


When drag and drop reordering is checked it gets stuck on "triggerNodeChange()" which is in jsparty/tinymce2/tiny_mce_src.js on line 1835

try {    
1835			$('Form_EditorToolbarLinkForm').respondToNodeChange(); 
		} catch(ex) {}
