Incorrect $(window).width() in Firefox

Reported by: dylan Owned by: brandon
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: dimensions Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: css width Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Firefox (tested: 3.0.10, Mac) reports the wrong value for $(window).width in really narrow browser windows. It gets stuck at a certain minimum, when the window width is obviously much less.


  • http://dyve.net/demo/jquery.width.html
  • Make your browser Window as narrow as possible
  • Note: no horizontal scrollbars
  • Press "click me" to see $(window).width() value
  • Repeat with Opera or Safari, sae window width, different (more accurate) results
