Re: jquery window.unload does not trigger now in ver 18

A good place to ask advice about web development is at the MozillaZine "Web Development/Standards Evangelism" forum.

The helpers at that forum are more knowledgeable about web development issues.
You need to register at the MozillaZine forum site in order to post at that forum.


There are other things that need your attention.

You have a corrupted user agent that identifies you as Firefox/3.6.16

  • Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.16) Gecko/20110319 Firefox/3.6.16 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) FBSMTWB

I am using a portable version of firefox, we have another development machine that has the full 18 version that we detected the $(window).unload event doesnt trigger. I uninstalled the 18 version and replaced with a portable version 16 and now the jquery event is fired.

went to mozilline, there are two possible issues: the unload or the post.

$(window).unload(function(){ $.post('/ffc/myjqpost.pl') ;}) ;
