ajax request does not complete when clicking a download file in the middle of the request

start an ajax request. On server side, take 6 seconds to return the response. Click a link to download a word document. It will download the file while staying on the same webpage. After the 6 seconds $.ajax() does not raise any event. On Fiddler, I see the call completed with status code 200

I can provide a repro

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, be sure to test against the "jQuery 1.x (edge)" or "jQuery 2.x (edge)" version to ensure the issue still exists—you may need to change this to a specific version depending on the test case.

To get you started, use the appropriate boilerplate:

Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to begin.

This test case is way too big; also, I see no JavaScript files in the test outside of the bundle. What's the actual code?

The code is very simple. First, start ajax request that will take 6 seconds to complete


type: "POST", url: "Handler1.ashx"


Then, user clicks on download link on the page After 10 seconds, this function is executed but none of the events in the ajax call window.setTimeout(function () {

console.log("+ new Date().toTimeString() +? ajax request should have completed");

}, 10000, null);
