#12311 closed bug (fixed)

jQuery 1.8 and .is(":visible")

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous
Priority: low Milestone: 1.8.1
Component: selector Version: 1.8.0
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


After updating for jQuery 1.8 I noticed the .is(":visible") returning false for a visible input on Firefox 3.6.22 and returning true for a visible input on Firefox 14.0.1

Firefox 3.6.22 alert(false) -> http://jsfiddle.net/qVntx/

Firefox 14.0.1 alerts(true) -> http://jsfiddle.net/qVntx/

Firefox 3.6 is no longer supported by Mozilla or jQuery. Sounds like it works okay for recent versions?

It is supported by Sizzle and this issue has been fixed in Sizzle upstream.

@dmethvin "Firefox 3.6 is no longer supported by Mozilla or jQuery"

I don't see anything here -> http://blog.jquery.com/2012/08/09/jquery-1-8-released/ Or here -> http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/198/supportym.jpg/

And yes, it looks ok for the recent versions...

If Mozilla doesn't support the browser, jQuery doesn't either. It *may* work, but we are no longer unit testing against Firefox 3.6 so there are likely to be regressions.

@anonymous, removing Firefox 3.6 support is a very recent change. Apologies that the main page isn't up-to-date

Actually I did knew the support would be droped soon, but I thought it would be mentioned in the changelog. It is a good idea to perhaps avoid future tickets.

Good point, we should have mentioned it and are in the process now of updating the home page.

Please follow the bug reporting guidlines and use jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
