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: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

This ticket is fool's gold. I created a bug in 1.7.2 when I ambitiously tried to fix window.height() vs. document.height(), only to revert to the pre 1.7.2 behavior for 1.8

If the OP can kindly provide the a fiddle showing the results in 1.7.2 and 1.8.0 and 1.7.1, I'll investigate.

This bug is very strange, it only seems to happen on certain pages.

You can replicate it like this:

Go to

to create a bookmarklet for 1.7.1.

Then go to and run the bookmarklet.

Then go to

to create a bookmarklet for 1.8.0.

Then go to and run the bookmarklet.

It gives a different (wrong) result.

It would be better to have a test case from jsfiddle or jsbin instead of a bookmarklet that we cannot manipulate.

I'm going to close this because is in quirks mode. It's horrible practice but it's their right to do so, and they're not using jQuery.
