Does the problem also occur with bare DOM methods like addEventListener? If so the event just isn't happening. Please create a test case without jQuery and let us know.

The issue has more to do with $.html('new content') than with the event code. I've updated my repro ( Note how the problem happens with addEventListener as well but it goes away if I don't use jQuery to update the element's content.

A few more test cases to narrow it down. Note that the original case is passing a *number* to .html() and not a string. Once it's a string the method goes through the .innerHTML path and works as expected. However I haven't looked at why it would break, the bare DOM case should be similar to the .empty().append() case.
