Contest Brief

Greetings freelancers,

This is a bug fix contest for experts in jQuery, JavaScript and Internet Explorer DOM. The bug fix reward is $50 US, guaranteed to be awarded for one of the solutions. This could be easy money for a Javascript/jQuery guru.

You must follow these instructions to be eligible. If you haven’t read the instructions, I will know and your entry will be rejected.

Here’s the Problem: I have a web site under development. In Internet Explorer 10 (don’t know about previous), I suspect something is intercepting a button click event or interfering with it. At a certain point, you have to click two or three times on a button to submit the form. Latest FireFox and Chrome are fine. I haven’t been able to find the solution.

The Contest: Describe what is causing the problem and describe the successful fix or workaround. The solution must be one that requires the user to click only once in Internet Explorer 10 to post the data.

The details are in the attached Word document.

Good luck with the bug fix!

    Update: This may be a "security" issue with IE 10 related to file uploads and submitting a form. A possible workaround is to issue a large number of submits:

    $(this).closest('form').submit();
    $(this).closest('form').submit();
    $(this).closest('form').submit();
    $(this).closest('form').submit();
    $(this).closest('form').submit();
    $(this).closest('form').submit();

      A security issue is *exactly* what the issue is but I don't like that workaround. I guess I'll post a somewhat better JS solution (really a hack)...
