[Opera] Unhandled DOMException: SYNTAX_ERR

Win7 x64

Opera 12.02 (latest)

Bug: Stops executing jQuery. Applies for jQuery 1.8.0 and above. Does NOT apply for 1.7.1 and probably below.

I've made a crash demo page, pls. visit using Opera 12.02.

This is how it is intended to be - scroll down the page and watch the Menu buttons on the left move. Uses 1.7.1:

This demo page shows an error when debugging with Opera Dragonfly. As a result the menu will not move at all or, if using the .min jquery, the menu will pop from left to right endlessly causing 100% CPU:

The error occurs on jQuery line 5152.

If it's an Opera bug that the try isn't catched, pls let me know so I can report a bug to Opera. Thanks.

I'm sorry, I just found this does also apply for Firefox (15.0.1 / latest)

Uuuh, and also for latest Chrome (21.0.1180.89 m)

Yes, and also IE (9.0.8112.16421)

--> probably for any browser.

The menu on the original page using jQuery 1.7.1 works fine, the same page/same code just using 1.8.2 does not work...

You can't quick-terminate a script tag using <script />, why did you do that for the broken case and not for the working one?

Uuuh... that was the point?! I'm sorry, didn't see that... thanks.

This can be closed...
