Steps to reproduce

Using jQuery to find any element with readonly="true" elements doesn’t work in Edge version 40.15063.0.0 / 15.15063 but previously worked in version 38.14393.1066.0 / 14.14939. Here is a fiddle to produce the issue:

The alert should show 1, but in Edge, it alerts 0. The funny part is if you open dev tools (F12) and run it, it properly alerts 1, but close dev tools and it alerts 0 again.
