When number sliders are nested in a rich:TabPanel with switchType=ajax they are rendered incorrectly. The slider is set to 0 initially. Then behavior differs in IE and FireFox. IE: slider stays on 0 and when clicking the outside the browser window also the number box is set to 0 FireFox: When mouse moves outside the browser window, slider jumps to the correct position.
This is certainly different than regular form submission and in my case mean I cant use ajax at all ( which was the original reason of choosing rich faces )
