Similar issue to Previous Ticket

When tested in IE8 (unable to confirm IE6 or 7), binding a function to the 'submit' event of a form works in FF3.6, but does not work in IE8.

$('#theForm').live('submit',function(){ return false; });

However, binding the function using the standard jQuery submit event works in IE8.

$('#theForm').submit(function(){ return false; });

Recreating your original test case here:, I've tested the live form submission with IE6, IE7, IE8 and IE9 and all of these were able to correctly bind the event to the form submission without any issues.

Could you please re-submit your ticket with additional information (or a live jsFiddle test that we can investigate further)?.

Just attempted to retest in jsFiddle and was unable to do so. I apologise for taking up your time (I am sure it was failing for me earlier, but, I cannot be positive of the cause).

Thanks for your time.
