jQuery(window).scroll(); causes IE* to scroll to 0,0

Reported by: rlrosario Owned by: dmethvin
Priority: high Milestone: 1.7
Component: event Version: 1.4.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Triggering the scroll event on the window ('jQuery(window).scroll();')

should be considered a special case because the window object has

a scroll method that takes two parameters: x,y. On non-IE browsers,

the call gets ignored when parameters aren't passed in. But on IE*,

the call takes on 0,0 as a default and scrolls the page. This issue

is preventing me from triggering scroll handlers this way because

of the undesirable side effect.

I wrote a patch on github:

Any way to edit this bug? It really should be Version 1.4.2 Milestone 1.4.3 but that wasnt available when I submitted it?

This is the problem where we execute methods on things that are not .nodeType===1 DOM elements, such as window or plain Object. The solution is to not run those methods for such cases.

(This was confirmed during the bug triage meeting.)

Since this behavior may be desired (or at least currently used) for plain objects, I'm only planning to exclude window in the 1.7 patch.

Fix #6170. Don't try to run DOM methods on window.
