Chunker has problems with single quote in attribute filter

Reported by: Owned by: timmywil
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: selector Version: 1.5.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


When a Browser does not support querySelectorAll (e.g. EnvJs headless browser), the "old" Sizzle implementation is used.

With that Sizzle implementation the selector

jQuery(':button[title="Don\\'t Save"]')
fails. The exception is: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: Save"]

It seems like the Chunker doesn't like the single quote within the attribute filter.

Note that when querySelectorAll is available (e.g. in FireFox 3.6) the selector works fine.

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 Edge version to ensure the issue still exists.

Ok, here it is:

Please note that you need a browser that does not support *querySelectorAll* (IE 6, IE 7, FF 3.0) to reproduce the error.

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!

Obviously I was not aware of the correct WF in this tracker. I replied promptly to the question asked two weeks ago, but should have also manually changed the status(?).

Anyways, the bug is still there, so I guess it would be best to reopen this ticket.

Looks like you opened the ticket as orsiumen and posted the fiddle as anonymous so the tracker didn't think you responded. Reopening. Agree that the escaped quote may be the issue.
