jquery.fn.offset on 1.3.x series + IE6/7 (works fine with 1.2.6)

This bug has been reported originally here: http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-dev/browse_thread/thread/6b8770d069db1872 and Ariel Flesler (core developer) seems to have confirmed it (on a private chat).

This bug seems to affect just IE6/7. So fire it up if you want to do some quick testing :)

Testing environments

  • Working version (jQuery 1.2.6 + jQuery ScrollTo 1.4.1 +

jQuery.localScroll 1.2.7):


  • Failing version (jQuery 1.3.2 + idem):


  • Working version (jQuery 1.3.2 patched using jQuery.fn.offset from

1.2.6 + idem)


Expected behavior (working with 1.2.6)

As you can see, there is an horizontal list of products, and so, the page is horizontally scrolled. When clicking on arrows (plain anchor links) between products, the page scrolls to the corresponing product. That's the magic of scrollTo + localScroll.

On the _working version_, if you click on the arrows between products, page will scroll correctly.

Triggering the bug (working with 1.3.2)

On the _failing version_, when you click on the arrows, it will fail for those anchor links and products that are outside the viewport, when the page was loaded.

So, if you have a very wide viewport (a big screen), be sure to click until the failing behavior is triggered. In other words, the arrows inside the viewport (when page load) may not fail.

You will see that the page scrolls erratically for the anchors outside the viewport.

A bug on jquery.fn.offset?

I've been talking with Ariel Flesler (jQuery core developer and author of jQuery scrollTo/serialScroll/localScroll plugin series) and he suggested me to report it here. Ariel also suggested me to patch the jquery.fn.offset on 1.3.2 using the one from 1.2.6.

How can I help?

Is there anything else I can do to help? This is my first post here, so sorry if I'm not following any suggested convention. I've been looking for a "how to" report bugs for jQuery but haven't found anything.

Thanks, Julián Landerreche
