In Safari version 2.0 $(window).load fails with error 'undefined value'. For anyone testing this, Safari version 2.0.4 does _not_ have this bug, not sure about the other 2.0.x versions.

As a test case, try:


In Safari 2.0 event.target is null for window load events. Since other code in assumes there is an event.target, the code gives an undefined error. The patch modifies the fix function in event.js to provide the document object as a fallback for event.target, which conforms to what later versions of Safari do.

EDIT: Removing this patch will cause IE6,7,8 to crash

This bug no longer exists in jQuery supported versions of Safari. if there is any issues or unforseen regressions, the code used to correct this was:

 // Fix target property, if necessary
 if ( !event.target ) {
	// Fixes #1925 where srcElement might not be defined either
	event.target = event.srcElement || document;

in jQuery.event.fix()

This was discovered while implementing #8789
