I am getting this error in the jquery-1.3.2.min.js file on line 19 (via firebug). I am using the calculator plugin (more specifically the sum function), but since the error is in the jquery file I figured I should post it here.

Can you reduce this to a simple test case that includes the html? Also, please use the uncompressed version of jQuery if possible.

In case this helps -- I encountered this same error when using the live() method, and it was a result of my having referenced a function as


instead of


Apparently the open/close parens screwed it up.

I am getting the same error. I get it when I use an Accordion from the UI library (jQuery UI 1.7). I tried using the non-minified version, and then I got the following error:

Line 1279:

elem is undefined

[Break on this error] var id = elem[ expando ];

To clarify: The above error is in the jQuery-1.3.2.js file.

I just tried with the 1.3.1 version (both minified and non-minified). Exactly the same error, but on line 1263 in the non-minified 1.3.1 version.

I'm getting this error in Safari and Firefox as well. In Safari it says:

TypeError: Result of expression 'F' [undefined] is not an object

I'm using jQuery-1.3.2.min.js.

If you find this ticket via Google, please post on a forum to get help in debugging your application. Bug reports should not be filed using the minimized version of jQuery, and the report should always include a test case that clearly demonstrates the problem.
