Attribute filter [attribute^=value] working fine in IE8 but not FF3.5

I have a script that runs on a click event to hide all table rows that have a class that contain "letter", then it shows all tr's that contain "letter?" where "?" was obtained from the letter that was clicked.

var classMatch ="\\"" + "letter" + strClicked + "\\"";


var i = 0;

$(eval("'tr[className*=" + classMatch +"]'")).each(





$('#searchTitle').html("We have found " + i + " suppliers meeting your criteria");

A Sample row from the page:

<TR style="DISPLAY: block" class="letterE fasResults" jQuery1247866605631="53"><TD class=fasName></TD>

<TD class=fasDME></TD>

<TD class=fasContactInfo></TD>

<TD class=fasItemsCell></TD></TR>

The part that does not seem to work in FireFox 3.5 is the [className^="letter"] attribute filter. This works fine in IE8. I apologize if this is a syntax error on my part, but I have searched for an answer without success. Since it works in IE8 I am stumped.

You should use

instead of className.
