please somebody help.

I think this is related to firefox instead, Did you try it in Windows with firefox? –  Anwar Shah May 30 '12 at 6:19
    
If the code works when called from onFocus, but not when called from onBlur, it's more likely that the problem is in the calling context than in the function. Please provide us the code where you call that function. –  Javier Rivera May 30 '12 at 7:07
    
Also, if this problem happens in windows Firefox, i.e. it's not related to Ubuntu extensions, you will likely get more and better answers is Stack Overflow (stackoverflow.com). –  Javier Rivera May 30 '12 at 7:08
    
This can be much simplified using regular expressions... User agent detection using navigator.userAgent is so 2000. –  Lekensteyn May 30 '12 at 7:13

press CTRL+SHIFT+J on Firefox, for error console, then reload the page. See what errors that gives.
