#12761 closed bug (wontfix)

[Chrome] anchor tag containing svg inside div is not visible (tabbable)

The first anchor tag contains svg (wrapped with div). The second anchor tag contains only svg (svg wrapped with any other tag than div behave the same).

In Chrome: the first anchor tag is not tabbable, which is not expected (should be tabbable). The second anchor tag is tabbable (as expected).

In IE/FF: Both tags are tabbable (as expected).

After debugging I figured out that $.expr.filters.visible(element) returns false for the first anchor tag. This function is defined in jQuery (, line 8410). This is a bug in dependency, but impacting jQuery UI function tabbable so I created it here.

I am using jQuery 2.1.3 (it doesn't work with 1.x.x as well).

Visibility is actually a pretty hot button issue. I have no desire to do anything other than rely on jQuery core's implementation here.
