  • Owner set to john
  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Component changed from unfiled to event
  • Milestone changed from 1.4.2 to 1.4.3

I tested and this happens in IE 6 as well.

I have experienced similar issues in IE6 wiring up a submit event with live (but only in a specific scenario):

$(function() {
   $("#purchase_form").live("submit", function() {
     var buy = $(this).find("#purchase_form_buy");
     buy.attr("disabled", true);
     return true;

further down in the page there is another script block that defines a domready block but does not utilize live at all.

On another page entirely, we use live to wire up submit and there are no issues present in IE 6...

Resetting milestone to future.

.live is still broken in JQuery 1.5 on IE 8.
