Occasional ActiveX Warning for IE6 Users

Reported by: edgilbert Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4
Component: support Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: ActiveX IE6 internet explorer 6 Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

By just including (but not using) the JQuery 1.3.2 js some IE6 users get an ActiveX warning. By switching back to 1.2.6 those users are no longer getting the ActiveX message.

I think this means that the problem is with this line:

div.innerHTML = ' <link/><table></table><a href="/a" style="color:red;float:left;opacity:.5;">a</a><select><option>text</option></select><object><param/></object>';

Or at least that is the only place I can find where JQuery 1.3.2 might cause IE6 to instantiate an ActiveX object.

I got feedback from a user that they got the same warning with IE8.

I think this is a dup of #4017, which has been fixed in the nightlies and should be in 1.3.3.
