On old versions of Firefox, jQuery click()-ing an input's label does not fire click handlers on the input. Manual mouse clicks works as intended. should alert but does not in:

Windows 7 Firefox: 3.5.16, 3.6.28 or 4.0

Debian Squeeze Iceweasel: 3.5.16

alert fires as it should in:

Windows 7 Firefox: 5.0, 7.0, 11.0 or 14.0.1

jQuery 1.3.2 through 1.8.1 shows the same behaviour.

We support Firefox 15, 14 and 10 ESR. Glad to know it works there. You should upgrade from earlier versions since they are no longer supported by Mozilla. If you require support for those versions you can manually add click handlers to the labels.
