Ticket #6822 (closed bug: invalid)
Selectors with Tab whitespace die in Firefox 3.0.x
|Reported by:||RandomInsano||Owned by:|
Somehow, working with tabs in a parent > child selector works fine in every other browser, including Firefox 3.5.X and up, but it throws an exception in FF3.
Code snippet: $("#TemplateStateBox > Select").disabled = true;
Throws: [Exception... "'Syntax error, unrecognized expression: ' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]" nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)" location: "<unknown>" data: no]
I can't say it's a big deal, but it was an odd problem. Converting tabs to spaced to align multiple selectors has fixed the problem.
I don't expect a fix, I just want it to be a known problem with jQuery on FF3.0.
Functionality is fine in Opera 10.60, Chrome 5.0 Beta, Firefox 3.6, IE8
