Description Paul Menzel 2010-06-26 11:46:59 PDT
Accessing [1] reloads forever in Epiphany and Midori. Iceweasel can cope with it. In comparison the images are never displayed before reloading. I am using libwebkit-1.0-2 (1.2.1-2) in Debian Sid/unstable.

PS: Bugzilla guessed my OS incorrectly (Apple instead of GNU/Linux).
PPS: I do not know what version corresponds to 1.2.1-2. I chose 525.x.

I cannot reproduce this with Safari 5 or with a local build of r61167.

WebKit in Debian Sid/unstable was upgraded to 1.2.3 [1] and I can still reproduce this problem.

I reported this problem as #589380 in the Debian BTS [2].

This sounds sooo much like one more instance of a site that reloads when the webview is resized, thus firing a resize DOM event (which in webkitgtk+ unfortunately happens when scrollbars are added to the main frame, because the scrollbars come from the parent widget, not from the webview).
Comment 5 Paul Menzel 2010-09-13 15:22:49 PDT
Just as an updated. I am still experiencing this with WebKit 1.2.4-1 in Debian Sid/unstable.
Comment 6 Paul Menzel 2010-10-20 03:26:09 PDT
Another update. I am still experiencing this with WebKit 1.2.5-1 in Debian Sid/unstable [1].

PS: I am setting the version to 528+, since that the Debian Developer opened #44681 with the same version.

Testing this today with

    libwebkit-1.0-2               1.2.7-3
    midori                        0.4.6+530-1
    libwebkitgtk-3.0-0            1.8.1-3.1

I cannot reproduce this anymore and the site loads fine. I forgot to test this with WebKit 1.2.6 or an earlier WebKitGTK+ release, since in the Debian BTS report Gustavo wrote that this is a WebKitGTK+ problem [1].

Changing the status to »RESOLVED«, »FIXED« hoping that this was a code fix and not that the site was changed. ;-)
