Running the Test-Suite in Firefox the Results are displayed as expected by the Test-Suite, finally displaying the result-page.

Running the same in IE6 opens the

summary: Different results in eventTest between IE6.x and FF1.5xtoggle/click broken in IE

I modified the testsuite to at least stop moving to the mentioned site. But the problem still exists, and due to the inconsitency with FF, it must be considered a bug.

It's actually the other way around - IE is the only browser that actually, correctly, triggers the click event on an anchor. We have to simulate the desired behavior in all other browsers.

This code works in IE7 and FFX, but not in IE6:

In IE6, i do get into the "function()" part, it does find the element, but does NOT trigger the click event.

jQuery('ul.stap1Hulp > li > a').click(function() { jQuery('input[@name=' + + ']').trigger('click'); });

p.s. the element which does not work is a submit button (input[@type=submit]). If i trigger the "click" event nothing happens in IE6. There are multiple buttons of thesame type, all with different names. Since i can't change the underlying script, i don't know how the server side handles things. My guess is that it looks at the name of the pressed button.
