I just updated firefox to 3.5.

I use a hover Event for the following JQuery selector $("div[cmsID]"). It worked in the previous Firefox.

The Bottomline is the Elements get not more selected.

The Expando is registered via Javascript at runtime:

<script type="text/javascript">


var test1 = document.all ? document.all["test1"] : document.getElementById("test1");

test1.cmsID = "test";

var test2 = document.all ? document.all["test2"] : document.getElementById("test2");

test2.cmsID = "test2";

Embarrassing, Embarrassing.

But i figured out that Firefox (and JQuery) behaves actually correct.

The Expando is registered after the JQuery call. Son no chance for JQuery to recognize the Expando stuff.

But its still strange that IE6 runs the JQuery Code (registered in a js file not inline in html) after the Expando registration (registered inline in html)

As the original poster has mentioned that this bug is not actually due to jQuery, I am closing this ticket as invalid.
