#4782: jQuery 1.9 has deprecated the methods "$.live()" and "$.browser()"

Component:  Core       |    Version:  1.7
 Severity:  blocker    |   Keywords:
 buddypress's "global.js" script makes use of jquery's deprecated $.live()
 method. The $.live() method is no longer valid as of jQuery 1.9, it has
 now been substituted by the $.on() method, which can be attached to the
 "document" element itself thus having the same effect as the $.live()"
 Therefore must substitute for example:

 $('.activity-read-more a').live('click',function(event){...});


 $(document).on('click','.activity-read-more a',function(event){...});

 Idem for all similar instances of $.live().
