#10786 closed bug (cantfix)

Width is inconsistant with node isn't in the document

If I do .width() on an element that is not attached to the document where the width is set by a css class chrome returns 0 and firefox returns the correct width.


I don't know if jQuery should be responsible but it should be known.

I'm certain this is a duplicate, but I can't find the original ticket.

It must be kept in mind that .css is for retrieving _computed_ values. Both webkit and firefox (and every browser) return 0 for the computed width of disconnected, as they should. An element that is not connected cannot have width. We provide fallbacks to uncomputed styles where they are available, but on a disconnected node with no inline styles, there are no uncomputed styles to fall back to, at least in webkit.

If that is the case I believe we should not provide those fallbacks then. Just like we are removing layerX and layerY because it doesn't work across browsers I think this should be removed too.

Thanks for your time.
