Odd Ajax issue

Reported by: rayhal Owned by: rayhal
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.10.0

I have an application that uses jQuery v1.8.3, jQuery UI 1.8.16 and jqGrid 4.4.1 plus some extensions that I created. Yesterday I upgraded to jQuery UI 1.9.2

Immediately I encountered some erratic behavior with Ajax calls. About 30% of Ajax requests would fetch the requested page then reload the main page inside itself. I cannot see any pattern to this behavior. All the Ajax requests are initiated by this code in the main page.

function GetContent(pg){





var msg='Sorry but there was an error: ';

$('#ajaxerror').html(msg+xhr.status+' '+xhr.statusText);




All of the URL's follow the same format:


The only difference is XXXX which changes according to the request.

I tried removing the extensions that I created,using JQuery UI with all components and with a minimum of components required to run the app. Nothing made any difference. Changing back to jQuery UI 1.8.16 immediately cured the problem. I'm totally at a loss to see why this strange behavior happens or what exactly is causing it.

Hi rayhal,

We're going to need a reduced test case showing the issue in order to look into this. For support try Stack Overflow or the Forums.

After a couple of hours messing around I've located the issue. Searched the bug reports and the issue is already covered by another ticket.
