stopPropagation Checkbox Issue with jQuery 1.5 and Firefox 3.6

Reported by: Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:

stopPropagation appears to be ignored on checkbox clicks in jQuery 1.5 on Firefox 3.6.13. This previously worked in jQuery 1.4.4.

Example is available at

Works as intended in Chrome 9.0.597.98 or by switching the framework back to 1.4.4 in Firefox (browsers tested in Windows XP).

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report and providing a test case!

jQuery 1.4.4 contained some code to make focusin/focusout bubble also in non IE-browsers. But the code was buggy and got removed for 1.5 .

You can follow the ticket #7340 for progress on this issue.

In the meantime you should be able to workaround this problem by binding to the focus event instead of focusin.

I'm not seeing this issue? I agree with jitter on this, as well.
