CSS Hook for marginRight causes Flash and Sliverlight to reload in Webkit

When using the Webkit work around on line 5989 (for marginRight), the swap causes both Flash and Silverlight to reload. This happens when you try to get the right margin of a table that has these plugins in it.

Here's a jsFiddle for it. It's missing the plugin because you can't have remove flash or silverlight files. :/

The Webkit bug doesn't apply to tables, so I think the fix is to test for a table prior to the swap.

Interesting. Do you have a page somewhere that demonstrates the reload?

It looks like the real issue is changing the display for a table in both Firefox and Webkit.

I have a working example:

It seems that changing any css on a table containing a swf has this problem. However, I have confirmed that tables do not have the marginRight problem. View in Safari 5:

(In #4872) It sounds like we can't fix this inside jQuery in a reasonable way. The first step would be that we need a test case. Can someone provide one?

The only browsers still effected by the reliableMarginRight issue is Safari 5.0 and old mobile safari. Mobile Safari does not support Silverlight nor Flash. Safari 5.0 is under 1% of users.

Combine that with Flash inside of a table, and you're in the "dozens of people worldwide" are effected territory.

With that said, I'm resolving as wontfix.

OP or timmywil, please feel free to respond if you think I've made the wrong call here.
