Incorrect $(window).width() in Firefox

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.


  • 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

Seems to report the correct width in Firefox 3.5 down to 116 pixels.
