$(window).one("click", ....) does not work in IE7

$(window).one("click", ....) does not work in IE7 but work in all other browsers I tested.

I would be nice if this could unified by either disabling this on all other browser or using a workaround on IE7. (E.g.: $('body').one('click', ...) does work.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, be sure to test against the "jQuery (edge)" version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate:

Bug still exists in jQuery (edge).


(requires IE7 for testing ;-)

The browsers are all doing the correct thing for their era. DOM2 Events said that events did not have to bubble to window but DOM3 Events says they do. A .trigger()ed event bubbles in all browsers, but that's because we do the bubbling ourselves.

There's no reason to listen for bubbling native events on window, use document instead since that works on all browsers regardless of their vintage.
