Browsers: Chrome 21.0.1180.79, iOS 5.1 Safari, Safari 6
jQM Version: 1.0.1, 1.1.1, 1.2.0

Prerequisites:

  • An anchor tag with a leading whitespace in the href attribute exists on the page (example below).
  • AJAX navigation enabled
  • Link ajax data-attribute or rel will not cause a synchronous load

Steps:

  1. Load page
  2. Click on desired link with leading space in href

Expected: Asynchronous load occurs.

Actual: Synchronous load occurs, clearing the DOM of cached "pages"

Updated the urlParseRE to ignore leading whitespace. That seems to work.

@jefflembeck jefflembeck Changed urlParseRE to ignore space at beginning. This is expected
behavior in browsers. This used to result in pages changing to
"%20destination.html" instead of the now "destination.html". Fixes issue #4882
