$.post() requires a value back

Reported by: Owned by:

$.post("/Foo", { id: "2" });

This will make Firefox state "no element found".

If on the server side there is:

public void Foo(int id)
    // Nothing

However, if I switch the 'void' to 'bool' and return true, then it works:

public bool Foo(int id)
    return true;

Now Firefox does not say "no element found" anymore.

It seems that jQuery requires/expects a value to be returned by the server for the POST request.

However, the server already returns HTTP 200 OK which should be enough.

It is not possible to reproduce this with the echo service provided by jsfiddle because of limitations in jsfiddle. Namely it always returns a Content-Type header.

The bug occurs when the response does not contain a Content-Type header.
