Forgot to mention that it looks like it's trying to set the "display" property to "0px".

Thanks for the report, but this is not a jQuery bug. As the documentation states, you cannot animate non-numeric properties with the default $.fn.animate function. If you want to toggle an element with a fade, use the $.fn.fadeToggle function instead.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
