#6952 closed bug (wontfix)

UI Position, target.offset() returns object with read only properties. Position attempts to change these and returns exception in Firefox 3.6

In some cases, Position uses object that has read only properties. Here are the code excerpts:

        } else {
		targetWidth = target.outerWidth();
		targetHeight = target.outerHeight();
		basePosition = target.offset();

target.offset() is browser object with read only properties.

        if ([1] === "bottom" ) { += targetHeight;
	} else if ([1] === center ) { += targetHeight / 2;

Exception gets thrown at += targetHeight; because it cant assign value to read only property.

Dirty solution i used:

basePosition = $.extend({},target.offset());

This is caused by a bug in core, which has been fixed:

The work-around for now is insert the element into the DOM before calling .position().
