  • Click on the first button (without the child element).
  • Notice that nothing is logged to the console.
  • Click on the second button.
  • Notice that “Event bubbled” is logged to the console even though the parent element is disabled.

Expected Results:

Per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms533732%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

When an element is disabled, it appears dimmed and does not respond to user input. Disabled elements do not respond to mouse events, nor will they respond to the contentEditable property.

If an element’s disabled property is set to false but it is contained within a disabled element, it cannot override the disabled state of its container.

Actual Results:
