Firebug finding illegal character in jquery 1.9.0

I'm using jquery 1.9.0.  When I load it.  Firefox says it finds and illegal character at line 3811
 has the following code:

try {
3811 --> docElem.childNodes, 0 )[0].nodeType;
} catch ( e ) {
	slice = function( i ) {
		var elem,
			results = [];
		for ( ; (elem = this[i]); i++ ) {
			results.push( elem );
		return results;

Open in new window

Not sure whey this is happening.  Anyone else experience this?

We need to see the related code which is calling this method within jquery. In short words your code. The whole context. A sample page you make up and put online for us to see, or you post your code here.
