#4405 closed bug (notabug)

Clicking on Tab throws an exception in IE7 after receiving the response of an Ajax request

jQuery UI tabs work fine in IE7 except for one particular case.

When clicking on a tab after having received the response on an Ajax request, IE7 throws an exception.

Follow these steps to reproduce the exception:

  1. Set up some tabs in javascript
  2. do an ajax request which needn't be related to the tabs
  3. the ajax request completes without errors
  4. click on a tab


  1. Open page
  2. Click on "Compute" (does the ajax request)
  3. Ajax request completes: Total computed Vitamin B12 (μg/day): 0.0000
  4. Click on Tab "Instructions"

In the second four steps the test is with jQuery 1.2.6 and jQuery ui 1.6 but I can assure you the same bug is still present with jQuery 1.3.2 and jQuery UI 1.7.1.

Others have reported a similar unsolved bug in Google Groups, with less details.

This bug can be closed again. I got rid of the problem by cleaning up some code. Sorry for the confusion.

Please neglect my previous comment.

The problem was that I tried to write an empty string in the jQuery html method: $('#receivingId').html(varContainingEmptyString); This happened in the response method of an Ajax call.

FireFox handled this OK but in IE7 the clicking on tabs appeared to be broken from that moment.
