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.

For the AJAX-related tests you can create a few fiddles and submit requests to addresses with "/show/light" added to the end of the URL; example:
