We have just successfully migrated SIMBunch.com to Joomla! 2.5 (all the while holding our breaths!) Phew! Even though we seem to have everything covered, but you can't be too sure!

This is something I found out recently, and may be of interest to other developers.

Consider this HTML code:

<div id="mydiv">
     <div class="slab-wrapper">
         <div class="slab">
         </div>
     </div>
</div>

 

Consider this Mootools 1.24 javascript snippet:

$('mydiv').getElement('div.slab');

 

Now you would expect <div class="slab"> to be selected, and you'd be right for Chrome, IE and other browsers, but Firefox throws a wrench in by apparently selecting the first element with a class with the word "slab" in it (in this case <div class="slab-wrapper">)


The workaround will be to use:

$('mydiv').getElement('div[class=slab]');

 

Good luck!
