The First alert shows 1, The second lert also should show 1, however it is showing 0 in 1.9.1. This was working fine in 1.4.4

Test case with all the bad markup and extraneous stuff removed:


It looks to me like 1.9.1 is correct because the first TR in the table is in the THEAD and therefore not a parent of the element.

@dmethvin: your test case has jQuery 1.7.2 chosen. Look at:
y and z should point to the same nodes, shouldn't they? There's only one table in the test after all.

Supplying the optional argument to .parents is functionally equivalent to .parents().filter( arg ), and examining the behavior of .filter will show that there's just no reasonable use involving selectors that mix positional and relative components, in part due to conflicting interpretations about what is to be selected: http://jsfiddle.net/YNT73/6/

Please either use CSS selectors like :first-child/:nth-child()/etc. if you can; otherwise substitute a filter function or method chain.
