Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'uniqueId' (jquery upgrade)

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'uniqueId' (jquery upgrade)

I have several screens which use jquery validity and jquery tabs and were working fine in 1.7 but now throw an error and the validation is not checked.

Including <script src="./jquery/jquery.1.9.1/jquery_migrate1.1.1.js"> in the header I see the error

Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 'uniqueId'

I've been back and loaded the full development bundle, confirmed that jquery is only loading once and checked everything that I can think of but without success. :-(

My guess is that jQuery.noConflict() is the solution but I'm not sure how to use it - and I've tried several ;-)

My scripts are still working in the Admin area where there is not a javascript menubar - so that may be the issue but I'm at a loss about how to resolve it (Had to upgrade jquery because of problems with some browsers)

I've left a sample of the problem in our beta-testing sandbox area and would very much appreciate some pointers to a solution.


Log in as user: jquery, password: jquery and look at the 'Profile' screen (top right menubar)

The profile should validate that first and second names are >= 3 characters, plus other stuff.

(The tabs stop working when jquery_migrate is loaded but seem fine when that's not there)
