JQuery ajax request setting Content-Type to application/x-www-form-urlencoded, regression

Reported by: spullara@… Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: 1.6
Component: unfiled Version: git
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


Difference between two identical POST ajax requests between 1.4.2 and GIT:

macpro:~ sam$ diff /tmp/1.4.2 /tmp/git 4a5

Cache-Control: max-age=0

6c7,8 < Accept: application/json, text/javascript, */* ---

Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Accept: application/json, text/javascript, */*; q=0.01

8d9 < Cache-Control: max-age=0

I've understood that the Cache-Control one is on purpose, however the Content-Type one was not mentioned. I'm not sending any data and didn't expect a content type to be set since I didn't set one. The content-lenght of the request is 0.

Set data to null or undefined if you don’t want this to happen.

data is not set:


url: '/v1/follow/' + follower + '/follows/profile/' + following + '?crumb=' + z + + (r ? '&render=' + r : ) + , type: 'POST', dataType: "json", success: function(d) {

if (success) success(d);

}, error: function(xhr) {

if (failure) failure($.parseJSON(xhr.responseText));

Replying to spullara@…: I made a  live test case which replicates the code you posted but I couldn't reproduce your problem.

Also be aware that AFAIK jQuery doesn't set the Cache-Control header you mentioned. And it also doesn't set the Content-Type header as far as I'm aware if you don't provide any data. So I guess these are headers automatically send by your browser.

Please report back with more information (browser, os, ...) and provide a test case which reproduces your problem and demonstrates this is indeed caused by jQuery.

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