Do you have a test case demonstrating what you mean?
Comment 3 Simon Pieters 2011-01-03 11:16:35 UTC
(Hmm, maybe that should have been Array.prototype.join, although Array.join worked in Gecko. I guess for older IE you need something else altogether.)

Check-in comment: move the 'onerror' stuff up to script execution and away from the no-more-related events stuff
