I have this order.html:

<html>
<body>

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
<!--
//Browser Support Code
function ajaxFunction(){
var ajaxRequest; // The variable that makes Ajax possible!

try{
// Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari
ajaxRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();
} catch (e){
// Internet Explorer Browsers
try{
ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP");
} catch (e) {
try{
ajaxRequest = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
} catch (e){
// Something went wrong
alert("Your browser broke!");
return false;
}
}
}
// Create a function that will receive data sent from the server
ajaxRequest.onreadystatechange = function(){
if(ajaxRequest.readyState == 4){
document.myForm.time.value = ajaxRequest.responseText;
}
}
var age = document.getElementById('age').value;
var wpm = document.getElementById('wpm').value;
var sex = document.getElementById('sex').value;
var queryString = "?age=" + age + "&wpm=" + wpm + "&sex=" + sex;
ajaxRequest.open("GET", "ajax-example.php" + queryString, true);
ajaxRequest.send(null);
}

//-->
</script>



<form name='myForm'>
Max Age: <input type='text' id='age' /> <br />
Max WPM: <input type='text' id='wpm' />
<br />
Sex: <select id='sex'>
<option>m</option>
<option>f</option>
</select>
<input type='button' onclick='ajaxFunction()' value='Query MySQL' />
</form>
</body>
</html>

and this is the ajax-example.php:

<?php
$dbhost = "localhost";
$dbuser = "dbusername";
$dbpass = "dbpassword";
$dbname = "dbname";
//Connect to MySQL Server
mysql_connect($dbhost, $dbuser, $dbpass);
//Select Database
mysql_select_db($dbname) or die(mysql_error());
// Retrieve data from Query String
$age = $_GET['age'];
$sex = $_GET['sex'];
$wpm = $_GET['wpm'];
// Escape User Input to help prevent SQL Injection
$age = mysql_real_escape_string($age);
$sex = mysql_real_escape_string($sex);
$wpm = mysql_real_escape_string($wpm);
//build query
$query = "SELECT * FROM ajax_example WHERE ae_sex = '$sex'";
if(is_numeric($age))
$query .= " AND ae_age <= $age";
if(is_numeric($wpm))
$query .= " AND ae_wpm <= $wpm";
//Execute query
$qry_result = mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());

//Build Result String
$display_string = "<table>";
$display_string .= "<tr>";
$display_string .= "<th>Name</th>";
$display_string .= "<th>Age</th>";
$display_string .= "<th>Sex</th>";
$display_string .= "<th>WPM</th>";
$display_string .= "</tr>";

// Insert a new row in the table for each person returned
while($row = mysql_fetch_array($qry_result)){
$display_string .= "<tr>";
$display_string .= "<td>$row[ae_name]</td>";
$display_string .= "<td>$row[ae_age]</td>";
$display_string .= "<td>$row[ae_sex]</td>";
$display_string .= "<td>$row[ae_wpm]</td>";
$display_string .= "</tr>";

}
echo "Query: " . $query . "<br />";
$display_string .= "</table>";
echo $display_string;
?>

I have it here:http://shedokan.110mb.com/order.html

...
Sex: <select id='sex'>
<option>m</option>
<option>f</option>
</select>

the ajax call works fine the problem lies with the value of the sex since there is no value attribute defined on the options the sex = document.getElementById('sex').value always takes the value '' (firefox in all its wisdom takes the correct value even if the value attribute is not defined...)

try using

...
Sex: <select id='sex'>
<option value="m">m</option>
<option value="f">f</option>
</select>
