#8003 closed bug (duplicate)

Child selector followed by ancestor selector not working in IE

Reported by: jacob.h.page@… Owned by:

Component: selector Version: 1.4.4

Given the following HTML and JavaScript:

        <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.min.js"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript">
          $(document).ready(function() {
            $('.a > div a').text("Found!");
        <div class="a">
            <a href="#">Not Found</a>
              <a href="#">Not Found</a>

I would expect that both hyperlinks' text would change. In Chrome and Firefox, they do, but in IE 8 at least, only the first hyperlink changes. It appears as though ancestor selectors do not work properly after a child selector has been encountered.
