#10655 closed bug (invalid)

getJSON doesn't send the right Accept header in some browsers.

In recent versions of Firefox, JQuery does't send the right Accept headers when getJSON is called.

getJSON normally calls the $.get function with datatype:JSON.

a better solution would be:

getJSON : function(url,data,callback){

var cb = callback;

return $.ajax(url,{

beforeSend: function(req) {

req.setRequestHeader("Accept", "application/json");

}, data: data, cache: false, dataType: 'json', success: function(data){cb(data)}
