jquery popup problem under IE9

i am trying to use jquery with IE9 but i am getting strange errors(i have tried multiple versions 1.6.1 1.6.2 1.4.2)

i have two kind of errors:

  • first: if i am including jquery script in my webpage it's working in the main page but when trying to use it in one popup i get this error:

SCRIPT5009: "$" is undefined after debugging IE9 i found that jquery could not be loaded which is not the case in my main page (so if you would say verify the given path i have done it and why it is working for the main page but not the popup further i have deleted cookies and caches to be sure that my jquery script file is downloaded correctly from my server)

*second: i have used an absolute path for jquery library

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

and like the first case it's working fine in the main page but not when trying to open in popup window (i have set the property to allow popups so it's not a question of blocking) the jquery library could not be loaded anymore

Further when i am trying to access to the jquery code directly using the url address just to check it i get this error

line : 12 (for

16 (for

error: 'window' is undefined

code: 800A1391

runtime error in Microsoft JScript

in the other hand i have tested it with firefox and chrome and it's working wonderful in all above presented cases.

so i get error only with IE
