Opera 9.2.6 AJAX requiring authentication

Reported by: mikeg Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.4
Component: ajax Version: 1.2.3
Keywords: opera Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

I am using $.ajax to submit several forms on a page - some go to

php files and others go to java files. All the forms work great in

FireFox and IE. In Opera I am receiving a login dialog box asking for

user name and password when working with Java files in the background.

We tried the straight javascript non-jQuery AJAX call and did not

receive the dialog. Any thoughts on why Opera is showing this dialog

when using jQuery?

I am seeing this on our live server where jquery 1.2.2 is installed

and on a deveopment server where 1.2.3 is installed with a piece of

the 1.1 compatibility plugin.

This is because jQuery sends null username and password to the XMLHttpRequest and this triggers a bug(?) in Opera. See bug 2865.
