What would be reason for enabling/disabling AJAX? AJAX should not be
intrusive and when user does not have enabled javascript, all should
work as it works right now. I also don't get the difference between
these two configuration options.

Same applies as above.

Probably you are missing token for XSS protection and request variables
are filtered.
