Ticket #776 (new defect)
Handling failure of XMLHttpRequest in IE over network share
|Reported by:||jayfresh||Owned by:||jayfresh|
|Severity:||trivial||Keywords:||xhr ie6 ie7|
When using Internet Explorer (on Windows at least) 6 or 7, if you try to open a TiddlyWiki over a network share and then perform an operation that involves making a XMLHttpRequest (XHR) to a remote server e.g. ImportTiddlers?, the XHR will fail.
This is not a problem for Firefox 2 and 3 (untested for other browsers on Windows), so I think we could do people a good service by adding something to the XHR library that checks for this; or at the very least, we could suggest this as a reason why the XHR would fail, akin to the suggestions that appear when saving fails.
