onbeforeunload breaks events in Chrome 4

Reported by: menno Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.4.2
Component: unfiled Version: 1.4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Steps to reproduce:

  • create a page with an onbeforeunload event
  • try to reload/close the page and see the browser dialog appear
  • choose to stay on the page

Expected result:

All events are still attached to their DOM elements.

Actual result:

No events are being fired anymore.

The problem appears to be "return (new Date).getTime()" in the function now() which doesn't return anything valid anymore after the canceled reload. If I change the function to return "(new Date).valueOf()" it seems to fix the problem.

See the attached HTML for a testcase.

Since the bug is originally caused by Chrome's faulty new Date().getTime() I've created a bug in Chromium's tracking system as well:

Sounds like this was not a jQuery bug, and now that the Chrome bug is fixed I'll close this ticket.
