IE8 on XP Crashes with jQuery 1.6.2
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I think it might be related to an XP patch that came out recently. I saw a post somewhere about someone having a similar problem as me.
I have about 20-some sites that are using 1.6.2 and they crash IE8 when the page loads. It's sometimes random and you have to refresh the page a few times. Sometimes it crashes the tab sometimes it crashes the browser.
If I change to jQuery 1.6.1 the crash goes away.
The crash happens on sites that are not using any plugins. (jQuery is part of our template base and we leave it in place just in case the customer decides to use a jQuery plugin). It also haven't on sites that are using a single or multiple plugins. I think it's just the loading of jQuery into memory that's causing the crash and is not related to a plugin.
Again, this only happens for XP users.
