Weird behaviour of click handler in WebKit-based browsers

Reported by: Sayan.Chaliha Owned by:
Priority: Milestone: 1.4.3
Component: event Version: 1.4.2

Blocked by: Blocking:


Here's some sample code:

Click handler for checkbox

$('input:checkbox').click(function(evt) {



return true;


Click handler for container of checkbox

$('#container').click(function() {

Do something which should not be done when clicking on

the checkbox


$(window).click(function() {

Check if a drop-down menu is open somewhere, and close it



The problem is that in WebKit-based browsers (Chrome and Safari to be exact), and also in IE7, clicking on the checkbox doesn't cause it get checked! On Firefox, Opera and IE8 it works absolutely fine!!
