    Description

      When viewing Moodle on a local network with IE11, it forces "compatibility" mode. When the permissions manager interface makes a call to admin/roles/ajax.php, it receives a JSON string with the MIME type text/plain, when it should get application/json.

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Use IE11 to view a Moodle site on a local network
      • Log in an access a course page
      • Go to Course Administration > Users > Permissions
      • Click the "+" in any row of the "Roles with permission" column
      • Expected result: One button per role available
      • Actual result: One button per character in the returned JSON string
