used latest jquery and jquery ui

I am using: FF3.6.13 on winXP

it supposed to change background color only in sibling divs of actual resizing div, and it also changeing color in ancestors siblings divs

changing color was used to minimize problem only. I have another function but the impact is the same

minimized code:

			$('#id1, #id11, #id111').bind( "resize", function(event, ui) { $(this).siblings('[id^="id"]').each(function(index, el){
			}); });
	function randomColor(el){
	var rndColor = Math.random();
		rndColor *= 1000000;
		rndColor = Math.round(rndColor);
		$(el).css('background-color', '#' + rndColor);
<div id="wrap" style="width: 200px; height: 200px; display:inline-block; border: 1px solid #1C94C4">
	<div id="id1" style="width: 100%; height: 50%">
		<div id="id11" style="width: 50%; height: 100%; float: left">
			<div id="id111" style="width: 100%; height: 50%"></div>
			<div id="id112" style="width: 100%; height: 50%"></div>
		<div id="id12"style="width: 50%; height: 100%; float: left"></div>
	<div id="id2" style="width: 100%; height: 50%"></div>

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced jsFiddle test case to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, test against the jQuery 0 GIT version to ensure the issue still exists.

I tried to replace selector siblings() with selectors parent().children().not(thisElement) and behaviour was same..

this leads me to conclusion that I dont have problem with siblings selector but with hested resizable elements. And this problem is already discussed here:

Because you've confirmed the issue you have isn't with sibling selectors (as per this ticket) but rather nested resizable elements (and there's a thread going on for that on the UI tracker), we'll be closing it. Please feel free to continue the discussion about the issues you're experiencing on
