Cross-Domain ajax request error handler does not get called in Firefox 11

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: [email protected]
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.7.2

I have the following AJAX JSONP request, to a third-party free webservice (success and error actions simplified):

          type: 'get',
          url: 'http://openapi.ro/api/companies/123456789.json',
          dataType: 'jsonp',     
          success: function(data) {
          error: function(data) {

If the call fails (404 for instance), the error callback is not invoked in Firefox 11. In Chrome, Safari (Windows) and IE9 the callback is invoked properly.

Also, in the Firebug tools, the 404 response is visible.

To workaround this, the 'timeout' parameter needs to be added. With the timer parameter present, the error callback is fired normally, after the timeout has elapsed

The behaviour has always been reproduced under Firefox 11 (several computers as well) with the above AJAX request

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

Issue is no longer present in Firefox 12.

Also, good work jQuery team!
