Can't get php script to show select box from program in firefox - console.log shows code including results I want

I'm going nuts!!! This all makes no sense to me. Here is my scheme that doesn't work.

'init.php' checks for MySql to have the database we want to access. If MySql it does not contain the database the program calls, through Ajax, 'restoreBakup.php' which is supposed to present a 'select box' to choose a bakup file for restoring the database into MySql. However, the 'select box' never presents itself on the screen !!!. Using 'web developer tools' you see the 'select box' complete with the correct options in console.log.
So the Present action of this application is that 'init.php' is run, finds the database is not contained in MySql and calls 'restoreBakup.php' which bypasses the 'select.box' on the screen and which then calls 'restoreMySql.php' which skips all the contained code and returns 'nothing' to the original Ajax call in init.php.

'restoreBakup.php' works fine if you call it by itself with firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help in solving this, R
