As seen here: and here: the jQuery test suite at crashes the Nokia S60 WebKit browser on my N95. I believe this browser is based on code around Safari 1.3 but don't have a copy of that version handy to check.

One thing I found that crashes the N-95 browser is using .html() when accessing a DIV by ID. E.g.,


will immediately crash the browser. This happened with the full, packed, and minified versions of jQuery.

Not a QUnit issue.

I did some digging and the problem is due to jQuery DOM Manipulation sequence that remove each element and then insert it using DOM.

During the test, browser would crash in different places which might suggest memory leak. As a temporary solution, I create a plugin to insert HTML using .innerHTML but would much be appreciated if jQuery Team can come out with better solution

I believe John worked quite a bit with mobile browsers for 1.4.3. If this bug is an issue still, let us know.
