.add() throws "no such interface" in IE when adding nodes from another window

Reported by: Owned by: gibson042
Priority: low Milestone: 1.11/2.1
Component: selector Version: 1.10.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

1. Open a new window, either with target="_blank" or

2. In child window, create a bag of nodes with $(...), containing at least one node

3. Add a node from the parent window, using collection.add(...)

  • Expected (actual in Chrome and FF): the collection now contains elements from both windows
  • Actual (Internet Explorer 10): throws error "No such interface supported"

This happens because .add() uses Node.compareDocumentPosition on line 1704 (jquery-1.10.2). Internet Explorer appears unable to use that function against nodes from different windows

See this documentation:

Technically you are supposed to use .adoptNode() or .importNode() in these cases. It's rare enough that I don't think we would want to add code to guard against it everywhere.

Perhaps it could be turned into a $.fn.adopt() method that called .adoptNode() on the nodes to make it safe to append them?

Replying to [comment:1 dmethvin]:

These is obviously a rare case (and no doubt present for a looong time), but the root issue is in Sizzle's uniqueSort, not jQuery append. I'm willing to look into it.
