#4028 closed bug (wontfix)

".className:not(:first)." incorrect in IE

Reported by: bryfox Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.next
Component: selector Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


  1. The selector '$(".className:not(:first)").length)' returns one too many elements in IE.
  1. The selector '$("div.className:not(:first)").length)' returns one too many elements in IE if the className divs are inside a containing div.

Tested in IE6 and IE7 under windows XP, jQuery 1.3.1. (No problem with 1.2.6.)

Example markup:

  <div class="className"></div>
  <div class="className"></div>
$("div.className:not(:first)").length); // == 2 in IE
$(".className:not(:first)").length); // == 2 in IE

Confirmed; it behaves the same way in IE8RC1, with a name other than className, and using .ready() instead of document.write.

Confirmed in IE8 RTM (8.0.6001.18702).

This isn't something that we're going to fix: http://docs.jquery.com/Won%27t_Fix

You should use .slice(1) instead.
