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

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

This is a regression; lines 1281-1282 in 1.6.1:

// Set background to avoid IE crashes when removing (#9028)

background: "none"

These lines were removed from 1.6.2, causing this crash. Reintroducing them after line 1296 in 1.6.2 solves the crash!

Lines 1281-1282 properly formatted (my bad):

  // Set background to avoid IE crashes when removing (#9028)
  background: "none"

I have not been able to reproduce this and we have a test for this in the test suite. Is there a test case that causes the crash? Setting background: 'none' should have no effect on any existing body elements since we create a div if a body exists.

From JorisDebonnet:

Go to with IE8.

Right click in the result screen, and make it refresh.

Boom, crash.

Add back the background: none setting to avoid any possible crashes in IE from the support testElement. Fixes #9823.
