beforeunload doenst work correctly

$(window).bind("beforeunload") and unbind() does not work correctly. The only way to use it now is good old javascript.

It now only works if you return false in the jquery way:

$(window).bind("beforeunload", function() { return false; })

but this shows the message 'false', and if you return a string the function doenst work anymore.

the way to let is work without jquery:

bind event

window.onbeforeunload = function() {

return "Save your data!";


unbind the event

window.onbeforeunload = null;
