Scripts are not being disabled in the loaded page

Reported by: Motty Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: ajax Version: 1.4a1
Keywords: script load Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

While loading content from another page, if the <script> tag contains any capital letters, the script will execute while loading. Even if the script is outside the target content. I posted a detailed description (as Fudgey) at Stackoverflow ( and it includes a fix by user Jitter.

In jQuery 1.3.2 line 3272 should look like this:

.append(res.responseText.replace(/<script(.|\\s)*?\\/script>/gi, ""))

all that was added was the case insensitive flag.
