Description Patrick R. Gansterer 2008-11-10 15:04:45 PST
The page simply consists of a iframe and a XMLHttpRequest.
The page starts a asynchronous request to wait.php (<?php sleep(1); ?>). On readyState 4 it start a new request and so on.
When clicking the iframe between a.html and b.html the XMLHttpRequest works, but when you click the back button of the browser the request stops.

Works with (dev) Chrome, but not with Safari 4.0.5.
Doesn't seam to be a WebKit bug any more.

Safari 4.0.5 and (dev) Chrome have significantly different WebKits.

Please try a WebKit nightly with Safari to test.

Problem exists in nightly Safari.

The issue can be with a different load deferrer implementation in Chromium.

I also have the same problem with Qt 4.6.2 on windows.

Maybe someone can give me a hint where the best point is for working on this issue.
