On Chrome $('#container').position().left ignores the margin on the container.

In firefox $('#container').position().left takes into account the margin.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, be sure to test against the "jQuery (edge)" version to ensure the issue still exists—you may need to change this to a specific version depending on the test case.

To get you started, use this boilerplate: http://jsfiddle.net/FrKyN/ Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to begin.

I even tried to use the test case you provided in the comments and couldn't reproduce the bug as described: http://jsbin.com/amatud/3/edit

Also, noticed you were using an invalid doctype, but even changing that to a proper one doesn't reproduce the issue.

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
