How to repeat:


#!div style="font-size: 80%"
Code highlighting:
.box {
    position: absolute;
    width: 400px;
    top: 5px; 
    right: 5px;	
    overflow: none;
.box ul { padding: 0; margin: 0; list-style-type: none; }, .box.success, .box.warning, .box.error, .box.validation {
    border: 1px solid;
    padding:15px 10px 15px 50px;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: 10px center;
} {
    color: #00529B;
    background-color: #BDE5F8;
    background-image: url('../images/info.png');



#!div style="font-size: 80%"
Code highlighting:
<div class="box error" style="top: 5px; display: none; "><ul><li>Sorry, module is not available now. Cannot access Mysql Database</li></ul></div>
<div class="box info" style="top: 30px; display: none; "><ul><li>Sorry, member do not exists</li></ul></div>



#!div style="font-size: 80%"
Code highlighting:
var last = 5;
$(function() {
$('.box').each(function(i) {
var mb = $(this);
console.log('Height: ' + mb.height() + ', InnerHeight: ' + mb.innerHeight() + ', OuterHeight: ' + mb.outerHeight());
mb.css('top', last).delay(2000 + parseInt(i)*300).fadeOut('slow');
last += parseInt(mb.innerHeight()) + 5;


If you hit refresh more times, sometimes you will get:

Height: 20, InnerHeight: 20, OuterHeight: 20

but expected result:

Height: 18, InnerHeight: 48, OuterHeight: 50

(for both .box)

Why do not directly create a jsFiddle??

I created it here:

But I'm not able to reproduce the described issue:

In Firefox 4.0: Height: 20, InnerHeight: 50, OuterHeight: 52

In Chrome 10: Height: 20, InnerHeight: 50, OuterHeight: 52

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Thank you to the last commenter for providing a fiddle. It would be very helpful if the author of this ticket could adjust that fiddle or create a new one which reproduces the issue.

Strange, in fiddle its not repeating... I will try to reproduce it a bit later in project again, maybe somehow there are problems with other styles

I am reopening this issue because I am seeing something very similar. I have updated the jsFiddle with code that should be reproduce the issue, but it can not be reproduced using jsFiddle. You must recreate the html/js files on a machine where the refresh button can be used.

The bug appears to have something to do with the order of chromes cache loading and JavaScript execution. If I load the page by pressing enter from chromes address bar, the issue in not reproducible. If I use chromes refresh button, the issue is reproducible.

I have tested this using the latest jQuery 1.7.1 and the latest chrome 15.0.874.121.
