Three points:

  • $() doesn't seem to work for me as expected (try $(".class1") on Joe's test case)
  • Better use constants instead of magic numbers.
  • Add a comment that the warning should be removed in a future version

  • Wow, that is an old page of Joe's! It also loads prototype.js on the page, so Firebug will use that version of $, of course. I deal with more PrototypeJS stuff than jQuery stuff, believe it or not. So, yeah, this is a problem with the two JS libs defining incompatible versions, and our switching around. This is an example of the bogus bug reports you will get. ;)

  • Yeah, I will change if we decide to keep this functionality (or before)

  • Yes, one release later I think, we should pull the warning. I'll comment it up.

Yes. Though I use it a lot for reproducing issues.

Oh my! I totally forgot about that! Sorry, Steven! So I tested it on other sites and it's working as expected.

Right. I wonder why we don't get this kind of reports more often already...

Good.

The changes for issue 5786 are unrelated. Why did you put them in there?
