"1 item remaining" issue in IE

Reported by: enots Owned by:

Sometimes in IE 7 a page with jQuery.js included never loads completely. In the status bar it says "1 item remaining". As a result the document.ready function never runs. I found that this problem has to do with the next line in jQuery.js:

document.write("<scr" + "ipt id=ie_init defer=true " +


This problem can be solved by changing src=: into scr=blank.js, where blank.js is probably a nonexisting file.

This problem occurs in other javascript libraries as well. I solved this jQuery problem with the comment at: http://groups.google.com/group/prototype-scriptaculous/browse_thread/thread/a1c745463251a95d

Maybe there is a better fix than using blank.js. I thought I send this in as a ticket. It took me lots of time to solve this problem. It is hard to reproduce this issue. I cannot give you access to the web application where we struggled with this issue, as it is an secure site with medical personal data.

Thanks for jQuery!

I see this was originally reported with version 1.2.1 so it was likely fixed by 1.2.3 where the document.write() trick was no longer used. But since it was reported 4 months ago which is after 1.2.3 went final perhaps there is still a problem here that I don't understand. If that is the case, please reopen the ticket with more information.
