I have an instance of OpenCms 7.0.5-jpa which worked well, until I needed to 
put it behind an apache, using mod_proxy_ajp (with no static file serving for 

In short, everything works fine, except the source-code editor does not work 
anymore, the tab in firefox stays gray and has the following source loaded:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>(yglodt) - Editing /index.html</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
	// change window name when opening editor in direct edit mode 
	// to avoid loss of content when previewing another resource in Explorer view
	if (window.name == "preview") {
		window.name = "editor_directedit";

<frameset rows="*,24,0" border="0" frameborder="0" framespacing="0">
    <frame name="edit" 
noresize scrolling="no">
    <frame name="foot" src="/system/workplace/views/top_foot.jsp" noresize 

Any idea what could be wrong? Attached is also the virtual host setup.
