IE: removing of #__ie_init in a FRAMESET causes weird loading of another frame (SVN)

I've experienced the following problem using jQuery SVN and Internet Explorer 6.

If you have a frameset with two frames, the back/forward buttons behave weird: they cause a page to get loaded in a frame which does not belong there (and was not displayed there, before going to another link and pressing back).

I will attach files for testing this:

  1. Extract the attachment to a directory
  2. Put jquery.js into the directory (or adjust the path(s))
  3. Open frameset_1.html in Internet Explorer
  4. Click on "2" in the top frame
  5. This will open frameset_2.html
  6. Click "Back"
  7. You will see "frame_b_2.html" in the top frame, instead of frame_a.html

This is caused by the following jQuery code:

jQuery(window).load(function(){ jQuery("#__ie_init").remove(); });

which was added because of ticket #1061.

My hacky solution for this was adding

if( ! window.frames.length )

before it, so that the code won't get used for FRAMESETs.

The real fix probably is to not include jQuery in a FRAMESET page at all, but if it gets done it should not cause this weird behaviour.

Like already mentioned in #1061, it would maybe be the best option to just always leave the ie_init-Hack-Script in the DOM, wouldn't it? At least it has caused two different problems until now.

  • Component changed from core to event
  • need changed from Review to Patch
  • Owner changed from john to brandon

I bet this could be fixed by doing jQuery(self) instead of jQuery(window).

No, unfortunately not. At least not for the provided testcase.

Other than not cleaning up what are the problems (if any) of leaving the script tag in the DOM?
