after ugrading from 1.2.6 to 1.3.2 and no change to the rest of the code, I received a "Too much recursion" error in FF3.

The code that was evoking the problem is this:

// Language Selection

$(".dropdown_flag").click(function() {



return false;


The problem is caused by the "slideToggle" line.

This is most likely not a bug in jQuery, although you haven't provided a test case.

Often, "Too much recursion" bugs are caused by not anticipating that an event will bubble up from child elements. More events bubble up in 1.3.x than did in 1.2.x.

Other solutions can be found by searching for "jQuery too much recursion"; there are several plugins that seem to cause trouble.
