Hi,

i am using input fields with drupal core autocomplete feature via module "Autocomplete Widgets for Text and Number Fields" (http://drupal.org/project/autocomplete_widgets). I attached a simple textual content (cck) field with autocomplete feature to a form.

If you load the form and immediately after this load the connection to server gets capped (in times of mobile data connections no rare event), a HTML error 0 appears in firefox + IE after every character input into this field.

This error seems to be caused by autocomplete core-implementation according to the module maintainer (see #667226-3: When using CCK field with Content Profile, autocomplete field displays http 0 error ).

The same issue appears for the autocomplete user-name input field of the masquerade module (masquerade block).

For me this is a usibility issue for a website, so i want to report it as a bug. A normal user has no idea, what to do in these situations.

This is a duplicate of #1232416: Drupal alerts "An AJAX HTTP request terminated abnormally" during normal site operation, confusing site visitors/editors (for 8.x). It would have to be committed to 8.x, then 7.x, then 6.x. The chances aren't great. But the answer there is probably appropriate.

Reopen if you see fit.

I don't think this is a duplicate. The other issue is an "error" being alerted when there's absolutely no error of any kind. This issue is an "error" being alerted due to a network timeout / disconnection, which is in fact an error. We may want to fix both issues, and their solutions might be related, but I think it makes sense to keep both open.

This behavior exists in D8 too, so setting version accordingly. A good solution, if there is one, might be backportable to 7 and 6.

Same as the other issue, need #1419652: [Meta] javascript logging and error reporting to do anything about this.
