jQuery 1.4.2 blocks console.log

Reported by: offwhite Owned by:

Component: ajax Version: 1.4.2

I have a test page running locally (Apache on OSX Snow Leopard) and I reference the following URL for jQuery.

I make an AJAX request using $.getJSON and with the response I pass the value to console.log and it shows nothing. Below is some sample code.

$("#GetJSON").click(function(e) {

$.getJSON("api/TestJSON", null, function(response) {





Now if I change it from 1.4.2 to 1.3.2 the response is logged to the console as expected. It seems that something is overriding the console logging function in 1.4.2.

Are you sure your function is called? What happens if you use alert() instead?

console.log works fine with jQuery 1.4.2.

To demonstrate with getJSON, I've created a quick 6-line Twitter API app here which demonstrates it logging the tweet text fine using FireBug and FireFox 3.6.10.

I think the problem may be with the way your local server was responding.
