Re-requesting failed thumbnails doesn't work on IE 11 and Opera 12
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Re-requesting failed thumbnails doesn't work on IE11. When thumbnailing large files, it's apparently expected that generating the thumbnail can take longer than various timeouts. We have code to retry several times, but it's not kicking in on IE 11.
