Almost always when I close IE7, an error throws (in remove function) comming from jQuery 1.3 because I had the 1.2.6 version and it worked fine with it...

Because of this bug i can't use this version of jQuery.

I can add that at the loading of my page i use jQuery to bind events like onresize and onload. Maybe this can help you...

This bug comes from this code (l. 2397):

Detach an event or set of events from an element

remove: function(elem, types, handler) {

don't do events on text and comment nodes

if ( elem.nodeType == 3 || elem.nodeType == 8 )


This code is called when I close the browser or the tab.

The element "elem" is "locked", I think this code tried to acces it while its memory reference doesn't exist anymore because the browser is closed ! (Maybe I'm wrong !)

Without a test case it's not possible to tell whether this is a bug in jQuery or not.
