Description Mike West 2013-09-06 01:52:02 PDT
Headers like 'content-type' should be ignored for 304 responses, even if they are delivered as 'Content-Type', or 'CoNtEnT-TyPe', etc.

I broke this behavior in http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/142068 ("Entity-header extension headers honored on 304 responses"). This causes pages like https://learndev.unm.edu/ to break on reload, as they incorrectly send 'Content-Type: text/plain' for 304 responses for resources like CSS and JavaScript.

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=246875 documents the Blink-side fix. I'll upload a patch shortly to fix the issue in WebKit.

Hi Alexey! Would you mind taking a look at this followup to the 7-month old http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/142068? Thanks!

Thank you, this is much appreciated.

I'd have used HTTP/1.1, because 1.0 should die, but this makes no difference in practice.

I'm still not sure how we get away with using WTF::Unicode::foldCase for HTTP headers everywhere, this should break with the letter "i" in Turkish locale. But this should not block landing.

Can we add some test coverage for this?
Comment 8 Alexey Proskuryakov 2013-09-06 13:03:49 PDT
My bad, I only committed WebCore by accident. Landed the test in r155208.
