I had to debug some jsonp request that wasn't working on IE6. After investigating and reducing the code, I figured out that the request was called through a click event binded to a link.
My description may not be very clear but the jsFiddle example speaks by itself: http://jsfiddle.net/EeRUx/
I know that:
- "return false" statement shouldn't be omitted in this case.
but, to my mind, if the request is correctly received by the server it shouldn't go through the error callback...
- jQuery versions: tested with 1.5+
- Browser: IE6 only. Also tested on IE8+, firefox (latest) and Chrome (latest)
