Description (last modified by davidserduke)


I've managed to factor out all of "my code" and all that is left is this tiny little snippet which dies only on Google Chrome.

// jQuery 1.3.2
// Google Chrome v1.0.154.48

$(function() {
        try {
                var bugForm = $("<form><input /><input /></form>")[0];
                var bugExpr = $("textarea,input", bugForm);

                alert("Success! found "+bugExpr.length+" items");
        } catch(ex) {


It appears to die with a cryptic DOM Range exception just as it enters the Array.sort method. Changing the selector from "textarea,input" to ["textarea","input"] appears to fix it.

I suspect that it may be a Chrome bug (which I've reported to them as well) but jQuery might want to implement a workaround as the experience is very confusing.

Looks like this was a Chrome bug. Tried it in (which Google says is the up-to-date version) and it returned 2.
