#3402 closed bug (duplicate)

jQuery.browser.version can be incorrect with mutant IE userAgent strings

Reported by: dbergey Owned by: flesler
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: core Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: browser version msie Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


jquery.browser.version currently looks at the last match of /ie ([\d.]+)/ .. it should look for all matches, then use the highest found version. In some situations IE 7 will present itself as both IE 7.0 and IE 6.0 for compatibility, and sometimes the declarations get out of order, not to mention adware and toolbars messing with the registry (see: http://jamazon.co.uk/web/2008/07/23/an-ie7-bug-that-returns-msie-60-user-agent-string/). The attached patch supplements the existing userAgent checking, but could be improved upon.

Updated patch to be IE-version-agnostic, and reduced from 7 to 2 lines.
