#11813 closed bug (cantfix)

$(el).position().left returns wrong value in webkit browsers

In webkit browsers $(el).position().left returns 1 when the elements has margin set to auto, while it works fine in other browsers.

Please have a look at this JSfiddle to get the idea what am I talking about: http://jsfiddle.net/QHSBQ/

If you run it in chrome it will alert 1 and in firefox it will alert 75, which is the expected value.

Confirmed, it seems that we're not able to deal with "auto" there.

the expected value here should be 1 and not 75, right? position includes margin, right?

So, firefox incorrectly reports 0px. It's actually a well known bug that I've advocated for fixing for a while. I just poked them about it. The bug reports are here:

In the meantime, I can't fix this. So I'm closing it as cantfix, and praying that Firefox fixes the bug!
