replaceWith() remove() = "PAGE CANNOT BE SEEN" in IE 7 and below

Reported by: Elrinth Owned by: Elrinth
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: manipulation Version: 1.6.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

To reproduce this:

<span id="weWannaRemoveThis">

<script type="text/javascript">




<script type="text/javascript">

function DoStuff(i_where)


This below causes "Webpage can't be viewed in this browser"

$("#" + i_where).replaceWith("test");

$("#" + i_where).remove();



ONLY TESTED ON IETester with IE7 tab, but our clients say there is similar results on their real IE7!

This is tested in jquery 1.6.2 and 1.5.3. Didn't test any other versions than that. To solve the issue, I simply don't remove the javascript. I used append/before/prepend/after instead and let the javascript code stay.

seems that which I wrote was destroyed by your editor... I had written comment on some of the lines (two slashes)... so now the code will be broken because your text editor ruined it. :)

But I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to do.

I only did replaceWith and commented out remove for you guys to see. but the comment in the text was removed by the jquery bug-ticket textarea.
