Steps to reproduce

I found out that JQuery (in my case, v2.2.4 uncompressed) cannot be loaded a content script. It causes two errors "SCRIPT5022: SyntaxError". Other scripts can’t definitely affect this, since I tried to load only jquery, nothing except it.

    The aforesaid problem appear with e.g. this extension (https://t.co/SbNfuofIni). Extension pages work well, pop-up works well (apart, it impossible to set its size bigger than 400x440 pixels), but regarding content scripts, as I’ve mentioned above, JQuery (no modifications, taken from the official website) refuses to be loaded correctly.

  • Thanks for the feedback. We are still investigating this issue and trying to understand if it’s a bug in jQuery or extensions in Edge.

    Changed Status from “Site Outreach” to “By design”

  • The two lines that are throwing errors are as follows:

    matches.call( div, "[s!=’’]:x" );

    It looks like these are by design by JQuery and that they are appropriately caught in try/catch blocks. They shouldn’t affect loading of JQuery at all.
