XMLHttpRequest throwing InvalidSateError saying “Object state must be opened”

The error is straight forward:

Error in event handler for contextMenus: InvalidStateError: Failed to execute ‘setRequestHeader’ on ‘XMLHttpRequest’: The object’s state must be OPENED.

You need to call .open(..) before setting the request headers.

Given your code, I believe the best way would be to move the call to open in the init(..) function.

var AJAX = function (params) {
    this.server ={};
    this.url = params.url;
    this.method = params.method;
    this.dataType = params.dataType;
    this.formData = params.formData;

    this.init = function(){
        if(typeof XMLHttpRequest != 'undefined'){
            this.server = new XMLHttpRequest();

            //Open first, before setting the request headers.
            this.server.open(this.method, this.url, true);

            //Now set the request headers.
            this.server.setRequestHeader('Content-type', 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded');
            //this.server.setRequestHeader('Content-length', this.formData.length);
            //this.server.setRequestHeader('Connection', 'close');
            console.log("XMLHttpRequest created.");
            return true;

    this.send = function(){
