Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced test case on http://jsFiddle.net that reproduces the issue experienced to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists.

Alerts stop execution, but will still be continually added to the stack on every resize. It is best not to do that. Use console.log for debugging. http://fixingthesejquery.com/#slide3

Actually, alert in a resize event crashes firefox 4 (probably due to the new alert window in js). console.log or whatever else function work correctly,

Same issue here. Alert on $(window).resize() causes freeze up.
