Java script blocked due to MIME type error

Good day.

We're migrating Lotus Notes 8.5 applications to version 11. The legacy application I'm working on executed with no problems in browsers link Edge, IE, Chrome and Firefox. The application in the new version is giving the following error:

Firefox: The resource from “http://<;lotusappsvr>/requisition.nsf/script_global.js” was blocked due to MIME type (“text/html”) mismatch (X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff).
Chrome: Refused to execute script from 'http://<;lotusappsvr>/requisition.nsf/script_global.js' because its MIME type ('text/html') is not executable, and strict MIME type checking is enabled.

A colleague has the same situation and have tried different solutions, including settings of the compatibility mode in the browsers. Another solution found was exactly what the code my application is using.

Form HTML Head Content

"<script src=\"/" + db + "/script_global.js\"></script>"

db is used in other forms as Dim db As NotesDatabase

Thank you.

RE: Java script blocked due to MIME type error

My first guess is that the script_global.js is not JavaScript, but may contain JSON. In that case, you'd have to add
type="application/json" to the <script> tag to indicate the content is not executable.

RE: Java script blocked due to MIME type error

Good day.

I made the change but is not producing the data to list. I'm checking with another developer with the same issue (and more experienced) to see if your resolution works.

Thanks for answering.
