Line 3205: jquery-1.3.2.js throws 'document.body is null' for following usecase

Load site which has jquery-1.3.2.js in IE or FireFox

Before loading previous site, try to load any other site say

document.body is null error appears in console loads fine

This issue is not show stopper but unnecessary alert is appearing which is giving a wrong impression to user.

jQuery(function() {

var div = document.createElement("div"); = = "1px";

document.body.appendChild( div );

jQuery.boxModel = = div.offsetWidth === 2;

Line 3205: document.body.removeChild( div ).style.display = 'none';

div = null;
