Selectors behave differently with comments tags on FF/IE

Reported by: PERECil Owned by: john
Priority: high Milestone: 1.8
Component: selector Version: 1.4.4

Blocking: Blocked by:


See test case. Basically, Firefox ignores the comments as a node in the DOM, and IE (all versions tested) seems to count the comments in the DOM.

I don't know if this behavior is intended...

  • Priority changed from major to high
  • Status changed from new to open
  • Version changed from 1.3.2 to 1.4.4
  • Milestone changed from 1.4 to 1.5

IE returns comment nodes too when getElementsByTagName("*") is used. This is a bug in Sizzle.find

 test case alerts 1 in IE 0 in all other browsers

 test case 2 shows simple case where this becomes a problem for jQuery

Triaged as valid, need to fix the gEBTN in Sizzle.find as mentioned by jitter.
