Autofocus is not working in Firefox

Reported by: sga Owned by: sga
Priority: minor Milestone: none
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.10.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

The documentation states:

Upon opening a dialog, focus is automatically moved to the first item that matches the following:
The first element within the dialog with the autofocus attribute

That doesn't work in Firefox (tested 21.0 or 22.0) or IE 10. Works in Chrome.

Hi sga,

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery UI project.

I see the behavior you're describing, but it works fine on in both IE10 and Firefox. I also don't see the issue using JSBin:

Were you seeing this behavior outside of jsFiddle?

I'm terribly sorry, I did a poor job debugging my case and the problem was elsewhere. The ticket is bogus.

My jsfiddle example doesn't seem to work, because it is in an iframe and I guess Firefox handles iframe focus differently. That may be a problem in itself, but it isn't the bug I was looking for.
