jQuery return different value from width() and css('width') in Firefox 15.0.1 (IE9 and Chrome 22 is OK).


var select = $('<select style="width: 120px;"><option value="">X</option></select>');

select.css('width'); return 120px

select.width(); return 116

Tested version was 1.8.0 and 1.8.2.

This issue not present in version 1.6.2.

Duplicate of #12071.Two bits of advice:

1. Don't query style information on disconnected nodes. If the styles were applied due to an external stylesheet rather than inline, chrome would report nothing.

2. Use .css('width') if you want the width style value, use .width() if you want content width (not including padding or border, as is the case with select elements).

OK but with older version no problem. I use 1.7.2 at now and i dont have any problem. When i switch to 1.8.0 and newer, crash all my design.

And what about back compatibility?

This was by design. Either you can switch to .css('width'), stick with 1.7.2, or update your designs, but this isn't something we are going to revert.
