#13894 closed bug (fixed)

.children does not return direct child, but .find does [Firefox only]

Reported by: kc0dhb@… Owned by: gibson042
Priority: low Milestone: 1.10
Component: selector Version: 1.9.1

Broken in 1.9.1 and 2.0 on Firefox. This works correctly in 1.8.3 and earlier. This works correctly in 1.9.1 in chrome and IE9/10.

Fiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/d3KR4/4/

Basically an escaped space (possibly other characters) in an attribute selector works with .find, but not .children. Also appears that having an element before the target with a space is necessary to reproduce in 1.x (edge), but is not necessary in 1.9.1

Erroneous behavior confirmed. I'll look into this today.

Shouldn't those attributes *always* be quoted? http://mathiasbynens.be/notes/unquoted-attribute-values

It's certainly best to quote, but the spec allows identifiers, which can include escaped characters:

Any character (except a hexadecimal digit, linefeed, carriage return, or form feed) can be escaped with a backslash to remove its special meaning.

As it turns out, Firefox does the wrong thing when numerically interpreting "0x": https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=872853

I can't wait to lose this extra code...
