Firefox/Opera JSONP call causes browser to "spin"

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous

Component: ajax Version: 1.5

When using a JSONP call, FireFox displays "Waiting for..." in the browser status and Opera just keeps spinning. This is especially annoying if you're using a long-polling JSONP call, but even with a regular polling call it keeps flickering.

Me too in FF3.

example, first ajax sent to server.(call it ajax1, server will return after 50secs), then another jsonp ajax sent(call it ajax2), I found ajax2 response status 200 in firebug and exists correct response, but the script not execute in ajax2 success until ajax1 response.

well, I use dataType "json" in ajax2 will work ok.
