Google Chrome vs .remove

So I have a script that adds new span tags in a div, after adding say 6 tags I click the remove button on one of them which calls a function that uses:


The span is successfully removed from the dom, but the screen does not refresh to show it's gone ???

Chrome Version 24.0.1312.57

It used to work so something must have broke during an update of chrome, maybe I need a new version of jQuery, but im stuck as there are no relevant searches on the net.

May be a google bug not a jQuery bug, but now you are aware.

Additional: I was using jQuery 1.7.1 and 1.9.x(latest) same results.

-- Clicking remove on the LAST span of the set will result in the artifact being left behind.

Code for quick recreation:

Your markup is invalid. You can't have divs within spans and the id values are numeric. Clean it all up, put an example on, ask for help on a forum to ensure it's really a bug, and post a new bug report if it is.

It was because I was using a span tag as the parent of a div. Confirmed this solved the issue. Thanks.
