jQuery's .css() won't return the correct values for an element not yet appended to the DOM in Chrome, but it will in Firefox. See test case.

Confirmed in Chrome latest.

I'm not sure that's possible to fix if the native treatment of disconnected nodes differs. I think we'd have to connect the node to retrieve consistent css, but that could have a drastic impact on the page depending on the css applied to that node.

this is important to note that this is only for styles that haven't been directly applied to elements (i.e. styles applied due to a stylesheet, not inline styling).

Otherwise, this would just be the same as #10254 or #8388

Also important to note that for disconnected nodes, the value should be 10px in the example, as per CSSOM spec which says that margin/padding/border/width for elements that have a display of none (including disconnected nodes) should return 0px.

However, in IE: 0px (incorrect) in chrome: empty string (incorrect) in FF: resolved value (correct)

I'm taking this ticket as I'm advocating for it's fix in webkit proper. There will be no fix in jQuery though unless some miracle allows us to find a hack here.

So, I'm going to close this ticket as CANTFIX because this behavior is consistent across chrome, safari, opera, IE9, and IE10. Only Firefox exhibits the behavior you'd like. I will continue to advocate for this as the W3C and browser vendor level, but I can't promise anything, and there is no hack I've found in any of the browsers.
