When I enter the API URLs into my browser they work, but when I try from jQuery they just return null. When I open the HTML below, all I get is an alert that says null, despite the fact that Firebug shows me that the correct request was made.

        <script src=""
        <script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[
                    url: "",
