find doesn't work in IE but works fine in Firefox

Blocked by: Blocking:

This doesn't work in IE, but works fine in firefox. The code has been modified to do the test. In reality I didn't build the xml string like that. It was the result of a web service call. I considered a blocker because it makes the application unusable for Ajax. I have a post for this on experts exchange, check it out here:

Can you please provide a test case ? that is, a small html file with the minimum html/css/js necessary to reproduce the problem.

Yes, most likely IE is not happy trying to parse XML with its tag-soup parser. Try using the technique in the link above and reopen the ticket if a proper XML parser doesn't fix the issue.
