When trying to get the offset of an element that is inside an iframe, offset() will return wrong values if the outer document is scrolled (scrollTop != 0).

I'm guessing this was fixed in 1.4.2?

Does that mean that you tested it in 1.4.2 and it worked? Can you let us know if this is still an issue for you? Thanks.

According to the comment on github it was fixed, but looking at the case now it seems utterly broken.

This is fixed in jQuery 1.5 and 1.6 in firefox, but not in IE8 and below.
