If you try to use the $(window) selector on a page that contains an iframe with a source that is on another domain, the call will fail with error.


<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js"></script>

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" />

function breaktest(){


try {



} catch(e) {


return false;






<body onload="breaktest();">

<a href="" id="test">Test</a>

<br /><br />

<iframe src=""></iframe>

You shouldn't use body onload=... with jQuery. Please check if it works when you use the standard $(document).ready(breaktest) event (or $(breaktest); as a shortcut).

If the problem lies within jQuery, reopen this ticket please.

The problem was with jQuery - I resolved this in SVN, though.
