jQuery(window).height() returns incorrect height

Reported by: Owned by:

Component: unfiled Version: 1.8.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

In jquery 1.8.2, jQuery(window).height() always returns the same as jQuery(document).height() instead of the height of the viewport. This means the jquery ui dialog function no longer works correctly. Everything worked fine after reverting to 1.7.2.

For me, this occurs in Chrome but not Firefox.

I also discovered, this only occurs if you don't specify a DOCTYPE.

So if I place <!DOCTYPE html> at the top of my HTML file, it works fine.

Thanks for contributing! We don't support quirks mode anymore. You must specify a valid doctype for jQuery to work as expected.

To clarify for anyone who lands on this page via Google, jQuery has never supported quirks mode and our unit tests have never been run in quirks. We do not consider changes in quirks mode results to be regressions or bugs.

Well, considering that it worked fine in all circumstances up until 1.8.2, I wouldn't consider this a "notabug"...

OK thanks!
