I was unable to reproduce this bug in 1.2.1 with

<div class="context">

<a href="#">Link 1</a>

<a href="#">Link 2</a>

<a href="#">Link 3</a>


In IE6/7 and FF2 the length returned as 3. I also didn't see any differences in your example. Did the latest release fix this problem?

I think I don't undestand...

Do you have opened the link I provided in IE7 and in FF2?

The 4th selection is $( '*' ) and if you hover it, its length is 13 in FF2 and 14 in IE7.

Odd, running your example I get 13 for in both FF2 and IE7. Below is the Generated Source for both FF (using Web Developer plugin) and IE (using this bookmarklet).


In IE7 I got

<TD jQuery1191357893890="22">13: DIV, DIV, DIV, P, DIV, DIV, DIV, DIV, P, DIV, DIV, H5, P</TD>

and in FF2 I got

<td>13: DIV, DIV, DIV, P, DIV, DIV, DIV, DIV, P, DIV, DIV, H5, P</td>

What meta tag are you seeing?

I've just found that the problem is bigger, so I've opened a more general ticket:

I have a weird meta tag added somehow by Skype in IE... it causes the n / n+1 difference between FF and IE.

I think that this ticket could be closed in favor of the new one.
