jQuery.globalEval(): Execution Delayed By Remote Scripts in Firefox

Reported by: serverherder Owned by: rwaldron
Priority: low Milestone: 1.6
Component: core Version: 1.4.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


This page demonstrates the issue. A remote script with a 5 second delay is inserted immediately before the call to globalEval(). In firefox <=3.6, the globalEval() script will not execute until the remote script is complete.


For Firefox 3.6, a work around exists. On the globalEval()'d script element, set the async property to true and embed the script text using data-uri. While it does not trigger synchronous execution, it does circumvent any delays caused by long polling remote scripts.


This was suggested here:  http://forum.jquery.com/topic/prevent-globaleval-delays-in-firefox-using-async-data-uri

This is resolved in 1.6 as we're no longer using an injected script node.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
