Firefox 3.0.1 Encoding Change (Bug?)

So, FF 3.0.1 was seriously pissing me off today. I’ll spare details as not very many people are VFP developers but it came down to something fairly simple.

When a request comes into my web app, I check the CONTENT_TYPE header. Most browsers send this…


Firefox 3.0.1 is sending…

application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8

…which completely threw my program off when using FF3, while IE6/7, Opera, and Safari were working just fine. The program is using jQuery, the form plugin, etc so the problem could have been anywhere.

I finally broke down and asked for help. Rick was nice enough to point out the flaws in my logic and get me back on track.

2.5 hours of pulling my hair out. Grrr!
