#308 closed bug (worksforme)

Making jquery 1.0.2 work in Firefox 2.0 ...

Don't know if it is really a bug of jquery or one of javascript 1.7 !???

But it seams that the javascript construction:

if ( obj.constructor == String )

does not work all the times in firefox 2.0. But replacing it with:

if ( (typeof obj) = 'string')
(obj.constructor == String ))

it solves the problem! I found this construction 3 times in the version 1.0.2 of jquery !!!

Can you provide some examples of this? I have not been able to duplicate this, at all. Additionally, JavaScript 1.7 is not enabled in Firefox by default, so that's not the problem.

The only time this happens is after passing an argument to flash via ExternalInterface. It's a firefox2 bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=361370

However, changing all checks on the constructor to a typeof check as suggested works around this problem. Anyone know if there are consequences to doing this that might not be obvious?
