#14658 closed bug (duplicate)

Why does my event.originalEvent.detail get erased when I call trigger() on a checkbox?

Here's a [JSFiddle example][1] showing my code:

    <input type="checkbox">

    $(":checkbox").on("click", function(event) {
        if (event.originalEvent.detail != 0) {
            alert("checkbox clicked");
        } else {
            alert("Not clicked");
      e = jQuery.Event("click")
      e.originalEvent = {
          detail: 1

In firefox, this will alert "Not Clicked". Shouldn't it alert "checkbox clicked" since I set detail = 1?

Duplicate of #13428.
This is basically a dup of #13428, caused by the fix for #3827. See the proposed workaround in #13428 of using .triggerHandler(), since you're processing this with your own code you can always follow the link via code if you need to and probably don't need the native click anyway.
