jQuery not considering current box model when returning current width of element.

Reported by: Owned by:

When using a css like this (using a different box model than the default):

#container {

padding: 12px;

box-sizing: border-box;

width: 500px;


when calling


I will receive 476 instead of 500, meaning it doesn't count the 24px padding.

looks like a duplicate of #11004

which I have mostly solved (works but doesn't deal with ie6/7 which don't support box-sizing css (they treat everything as box-sizing:border-box))
