post/get ajax bug in IE 6-8

Reported by: kof13 Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: ajax Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

If I try to do $.get - FF works fine, but IE 6-8 sends the request as a post. So our error handler notes "empty post request".

Can you provide a test case?

I tryed to reproduce this case outside of the website. It seems to be a bit special case.

I was trying to set a global parameter for all ajax requests:

cstok = 'asdfast2345twgew35aer';

$(document).ajaxSend(function(e, xhr, settings){'cstok='+cstok;

Since you're doing a get, why did you use wouldn't you append your cstok to the url instead?

1.actually I not really need this param by get. I just didn't asked if this is a POST or not and got problems in IE becouse all GET requests were POST now. (if (settings.type=='POST'))

2.Of course I can add this param to the url

$(document).ajaxSend(function(e, xhr, settings){

But it seems to be to late at this moment, so it didn't works

3.Nevertheless the real problem that its working in IE and FF not at the same way.

My original idea was to add this parameter to all requests global, to not to do it in each request. Is there any other way to do it?

Hi kof13,

By removing'cstok='+cstok; IE6 will correctly identify it as a GET

Yes, I know. Its just inconsistent behavior in IE-FF, if you think its not a bug just close the ticket.

Looks like, that things are not properly handeled here. I vote for taking such things strict. This will remove side-effects and the usability will increase.
