I have found this bug working with Firefox 3.6 and 4 using jquery 1.4 or 1.5:

<div id="cont"></div>


$('#cont').append('<img onload=alert("test") src=img/abc.jpg >');


When I append the image the onload event fires twice. I had not this problem with jquery 1.3

thanks in advance

Thank you for submitting a bug report to the jQuery project.

In the future, please do not paste code in the ticket, but provide a test case on It seems the inline event handler does get called twice.

Having looked into this, I've narrowed this down to the call to clone that occurs in domManip around line 5362. I have no idea what the full implications of that call are, but - for example - hard-coding results.cacheable to false just before that call cancels the 'double event'. Hoping that's of some help to one of you who knows what you're doing :)

jQuery cannot be responsible for the behaviour inline of event handlers.
