There are certain Web Application Firewalls that rejects requests that missing this header.

Once the X-Requested-With header is missing, the UI become unavailable.

According to https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7230#page-22 it is not valid to have an empty header value. A workaround will be to create exceptions in the Web Application Firewall.
