this :not() selector doesn't seem to work for me

$( "#iw-claim-form input[ type='text' ]:not( [ disabled='disabled' ] )" ).each();

in IE 8 this still iterates over the disabled inputs

works fine in FF 3.6 and chrome 9


markup is as follows

<div id="iw-claim-form">

<div id="error-list">

Fix your error stupid!


<form id="claim-form" action="" method="">

<div class="side-group top-group clearfix">

<div class="side-by-side">

<label for="claim-code">Claim Code:</label>

<input type="text" name="claim-code" id="claim-code" value="some code junk" disabled="disabled" />


<div class="side-by-side">

<label for="email">Email:</label>

<input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="some code junk" disabled="disabled" />



<label for="title" >Title:</label>

<select name="title" id="title" tabindex="1">






<div class="side-group clearfix">

<div class="side-by-side">

<label for="first-name">First Name:</label>

<input type="text" name="first-name" id="first-name" maxlength="50" size="35" value="First Name" tabindex="2" />


<div class="side-by-side">

<label for="last-name">Last Name:</label>

<input type="text" name="last-name" id="last-name" maxlength="50" size="35" value="Last Name" tabindex="3" />

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 believe there's an open ticket for this already that I can't find, Sizzle is looking at the property rather than the attribute. As a workaround try this selector:

"#foo input[type='text']:not( :disabled ), #foo select"

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

Yes this still does not work and i believe it would be cool if you guys would fix it since you say you are CSS3 selectors compliant but in this instant

your not 100% compliant in IE

not being a jerk, i love jQuery and want to help it be even more awesome and perfect

should this be posted to a sizzle bug?

basically :not used in this example is not working in IE8 and lower
