Application navigator (left nav) does not load (is blank/continuously loading) in UI16 when using IE (Internet Explorer).
HTTP response code 202 is being returned by the server when requesting the application navigator content (GET request to /api/now/ui/navigator/favorites).
GlideRequestManager will send a 202 Accepted response to any subsequent request received after one of the following scenarios are met:
- 3 transactions for that session are pending. This number of transactions can be controlled by the com.glide.request.max_waiters system property.
- A transaction has been running for longer than 30 seconds. This period can be controlled by the com.glide.request.max_run_time_ms system property.
It has been discovered that there are scenarios where the GET request to /api/now/ui/navigator/favorites to retrieve the application navigator content responded with 202 Accepted, and the application navigator does not handle this response type gracefully, remaining blank.
Steps to Reproduce
