That's not a bug.

How could jQuery determine if you expect:

  • ":hidden" == ":not(:visible)" or
  • ":hidden" == "[type=hidden]" ?

By definition it's the first. Just take a look at the docs. There is no such form-selector atm., sorry.

component: unfiledselector

Abro, both types of elements are considered to be hidden. However, this case is a bit too bizarre for my taste. Don't style hidden inputs!

There are several checks/filters for :hidden elsewhere in jQuery fx; if this is fixed it may have other impacts.
