Hi All,

We are using jquery tiptip plugin for showing tooltips, the page is a dynamic one.

The code works fine for ie8 and firefox, but in ie7, it is getting in infinite loop and I am getting out of memory error alert. The code is,

$('a[toolTip]').live('mouseover', function(e) {




We are using toolTip as the attribute to tiptip. When I remove the trigger mouseenter line of code, it is working in IE7 too, but not on the first hover, only on the second hover. That's why I have added the below line of code

$(this).trigger('mouseenter'); Please help me to fix this infinite looping in IE7.
