Description (last modified by Rick Waldron)

With jquery 1.6 on firefox 3.6.17, .show(); does not seem to work on the html tag.

I have made a quick demo here:

demo: http://jsfiddle.net/UHEEm/




html {
    display: none;



//$('html').css('display', 'block'); //this works though.

Seems like this is an issue if Firefox 4.0 as well

The body tag looks like the only other tag that is affected by this bug.

IMHO, like #8099 and this ticket, modifying the display property directly instead of via a class is flat out wrong. I'm going to recommend, for simplicity sake, that we just pre-define html & body in the in the elementdisplay object, something like this:


While I don't think this is right, nor do I really think we should be making iframes to account for what amounts to BAD markup and styles, I guess people are doing it, so we need to address the issue.

Nearly a duplicate of #8099
