Ticket #7392 (closed bug: duplicate)
ajax async:false does not properly block in IE7/IE8
|Reported by:||KingKaeru||Owned by:|
jQuery ajax requests do not appear to be blocking properly when async is set to false.
The issue does not exist in firefox 3.6.* (and possibly others).
The issue exists in IE7 and IE8.
The issue exists in jQuery 1.4.3 and 1.3.2
I have attached a sample case to reproduce. In firefox, you will notice that the counter increments from 0 to 1000. In IE, the browser only displays the final number and we do not see a visual update of the counter.
