You can debug JS with Firebug in Firefox or similar debugging tools that are already built in in Opera and Safari (Win: Ctrl+Alt+I, Mac: Opt+Cmd+I). The console should show any error message that comes up.

Do you happen to have the script online somewhere? I don’t feel like downloading and unpacking a RAR file (and I think many other people, too; you’ll get help faster if you make it most convenient for the people to check it out).

"Loading" indefinitely seems to me that it is not an error per se- or you would get an error (that is if you are calling a php page- and that page errors out, it should bomb out on you) Are you stuck in a loop somewhere? I would look @ the .js and the .php file you listed for "for" loops, and "while" loops and see if there is any place where you could get stuck

You can debug JavaScript in ANY browser except Firefox by using the built in debugger - Firefox is the only browser that doesn't have one. The Venkmann extension for Firefox provides the same JavaScript debugger as the other browsers have built in. Firebug is intended more for debugging HTML and CSS and is not as powerful for debugging JavaScript.

See http://javascriptexample.net/debug.php for instructions on how to find the debugger built into each of the different browsers.
