Make sure that the JavaScript debugger is open in your browser and observe if the Ajax request is succeeding. I'm betting that it is not.

The URL that you are using should be server-relative, beginning with the context path. Using a page-relative URL as you are doing here is fraught with perils even if you do get it to work.
