Filter expression i.e. $('li:gt(1)') broken since jQuery 1.2.5

I've been using a script which works fine with jQuery 1.1 but now had to update to jQuery 1.2.6 for a new script, now the following script doesn't work anymore:

function ndxz_expanding_loader()


var speed = 200;

var item_title = new Array();

var items = new Array();

var i = 0;

$("#menu ul").each(function()


items[i] = $("#menu ul").eq(i).children().filter(function (index) { return index > 0; });

/* v1 - hide items if not active */

if (items[i].is(".active") == false) { items[i].hide(); }

/* v2 - hide all */


apply the clicker

$(this).attr('id', 'c' + i);

$(this).children(":first").css({ cursor: 'pointer' });

$$(this).attr('onclick', "$('ul#c" + i + " li:gt(0)').toggle(" + speed + ");$('#content').hide();");




Script is also viewable here:

It works correctly in the current Firefox 3, but not in current versions of Safari, IE and Chrome.

I also tried changing the line:

$(this).attr('onclick', "$('ul#c" + i + " li:gt(0)').toggle(" + speed + ");$('#content').hide();");


$(this).attr('onclick', "$('ul#c" + i + " li:not(:first-child)').toggle(" + speed + ");$('#content').hide();");


$(this).attr('onclick', "$('ul#c" + i + " li').slice(1).toggle(" + speed + ");$('#content').hide();");

The above examples also don't work.

And then downgraded to 1.2.5 which has the same error, 1.2.4 was not released and in jQuery 1.2.3 the script works in all browsers.

I have put up a demo at:

with the version that uses jQuery 1.2.6 only works in FF 3.

If you click on one of the menu items (Arbeiten,Vita, Kontakt) they won't expand on Safari, IE.
