Undelegate will not work when selector is class name.

It seems that as of jQuery 1.6.x undelegate will not work if selector is a class name. (this is working with 1.5.2)

Tested on Chorme 12.0.742.122 and Firefox 5.0.

Sample repro Clicking on the button will not remove the previous delegate causing multiple executions of the click handler.

OP, you are confusing HTML classes with jQuery event namespaces. This example with namespaces works fine.

The new on() replacement for delegate also will not undelegate.

<div id="container">
        <button type="button" class="b">Click me twice</button>
function attach() {
    var $con = $("#container").on("click", ".b",
             function() {
