jQuery.ajax: cache is not set to false if dataType is javascript

Reported by: paxos Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone: 1.5
Component: ajax Version: 1.4.4

Documentation says:


Default: true, false for dataType 'script' and 'jsonp'

Thats definitly not true. On Firefox, you have to explicit set cache to false, even when using datatype script.

If you dont do it, Firefox overwrites its cache with the ajax response. This gets some really wired side-effects.


URL: /index

Responses different if browser uses HTML or AJAX request.

1. Open page /index

2. On this page, an ajax request is sent to same url, different ajax response is parsed

3. I browse do different url, i.e. /index2

4. I hit the back button. And i got: The former Ajax response instead of the html site!
