Ticket #6933 (closed bug: invalid)
ajax request fails in IE8 with "Error requesting page"
|Reported by:||charger440six_pac||Owned by:|
In IE8, the request is not submitted to server because window.XMLHttpRequest IS defined in IE8 but apparently does not work. Ref. line 4952 in jquery-1.4.2.js. This causes xhr to be set to 'new window.XMLHttpRequest()' which appears to cause the failure. When xhr gets set to the reurn value from 'new window.ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")', the request is transferred correctly. This appear to also affect the 'load' method. Win7/IE8 v8.0.7600.16385
