Recently we have been seeing issues with the functionality of JavaScripts working that are using jQuery. jQuery is a free open source JavaScript plugin used for dynamic site functions. There are many of websites using jQuery on the web. If your website stopped working for no reason, it may because  jQuery updated to 1.9.0. If your site does not use jQuery, then this article does not apply to you.

On January 15th, jQuery updated to version 1.9.0. Customers that are using the jquery-latest.js will automatically use the updated version. The script looks like the following:

<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

If you are using jquery-latest.js for your jQuery, you will want to switch back to the old version by linking the script to the version 1.8.3 like the following.

<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

If you are a developer, you can update the code for the jQuery by editing the code in the head section of your site. If you are not a developer and are not comfortable with editing code, then you will want to contact your developer.
