Firefox and Apache

leave a comment »

Came across this frustrating fact, while trying to connect to Tomcat proxied behind Apache though an Ajax connection… and continuously getting “page not found”:

  1. Firefox doesn’t pass the content-length header on POST requests.
  2. Apache has a flag “SecFilterEngine” which if set to ‘On’ would tell Apache to reject requests without a content-length header.


  1. Shouldn’t Firefox send the content-length header?
  2. Or, why should Apache demand it?
