Jquery 1.6.2 crashes IE8 when fading (fadeIn/fadeOut)

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: effects Version: 1.6.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

1. Fade

I use $('#something').fadeIn or fadeOut.

With Jquery 1.6.2 and IE8, i reloaded the IE8 a few times. About every third time the IE crashed.

2. Colorbox/Fanybox

I also added a colorbox. When clicking a colorbox link and quickly clicking while the colorbox is loading to close the colorbox, the IE8 crashes again.

Same with fancybox.

3. Fade without Colorbox

Even if i completely remove the colorbox and using only the fading element, the IE keeps crashing on reload

4,. Solution so far

I downloaded and included jQuery 1.5.2 which works fine

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket!

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate:

Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

PS: Please note that we are unable to assist with colorbox/jQuery plugin related issues.

ticket is still valid. when i upgraded to 1.6.2. i also got the SysFader crash in internet explorer. jQuery 1.6.2 is not stable in IE8. the crash is replayable and often occurs with a refresh of the screen.
