HI,
I noticed that especially in safari if i made an ajax call say like :

headers : {"dsds" : "asdasdas  "}
As this has a trailing space at the end... This will result in an exception.
What could be the reason for this.. As this is not happening for other browsers ??

Thanks

We need a context for this, a link and / or screen shot, a full description of the error and a look at the underlying code.

Still not enough - we need to see the code.

Sidebar - is the space on the end necessary - why not simply trim it before sending.

Thats the whole code in the screenshot just create an xhr request and add an header with a trailing space at the end... It throws an error this does not happen in chrome.. or firefox...
Yes thats what i am planning to do just trim the space before sending....
Just wanted to know if there is any possible reason why safari has done that  and not chrome...

This bug report seems to deal with the issue

https://github.com/jquery/jquery/issues/3055

Basically it says that a space should be allowed but that there does appear to be an issue with Safari so for now I would just trim the value.
