show() can trigger flash reload bug in Firefox 3.5

jQuery can trigger a bug in Firefox 3.5rc3 where show() causes all flash elements on a page to be reloaded. Bug info:


The bug is triggered by calling show() on any table component element (TR, TD, TH, THEAD, TFOOT, and TBODY) on a page with flash. show() will call a code path that effectively does the following and causes the bug:


The Firefox behavior is clearly some sort of bug but there is a fix that can be done in jQuery. show() adds empty elements to BODY to get the CSS display property. These can instead be added to a temporary DIV in BODY. A patch to 1.3.2 is attached.
