In macOS Safari, in an infobox template, playing an audio file continuously expands the player section
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Video (via Dropbox)

The infobox header of the English Wikipedia's Template:Infobox anthem seems to malfunction in Safari, being incorrectly positioned upon page load and moving down the screen as the audio plays. Confirmed here. This doesn't happen with Template:Infobox song, which uses the same helper template for the audio and the same helper template to generate the infobox.

Steps to reproduce

  • Open a Wikipedia article containing the infobox, such as "The Internationale", in Safari on macOS.
  • The infobox header will be at the bottom of the infobox. Press play. The infobox header will start moving down the page.

Hi @Jc86035, thanks for taking the time to report this!
Unfortunately this report lacks some information. If you have time and can still reproduce the problem: Please add a more complete description to this report, such as a clear list of steps to reproduce, describing actual results and expected results after performing the steps to reproduce, attaching a public testcase or providing a link/URL to a public testcase. You can edit the task description by clicking Edit Task.
Ideally, exact and clear steps to reproduce should allow any other person to follow these steps (without having to interpret those steps) and see the same results. Problems that others can reliably reproduce can get fixed faster. Thanks!

Hi @Aklapper, I'm not sure what was ambiguous about it or the linked report on English Wikipedia, but I've added steps [edit: and the video, uploaded to Dropbox] if it helps. There's not much more to it.

Aklapper changed the task status from Stalled to Open.

Clear steps to reproduce with a testcase link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Internationale (I guess, so someone who wants to test this does not have to spend time trying to find a page where this happens) were missing. Thanks!

This doesn't happen with Template:Infobox song, which uses the same helper template for the audio and the same helper template to generate the infobox.

That page has a table caption. And that table caption is what is somehow being moved. If i remove that caption, then it seems it also stops expanding the table itself. No idea what is causing that.

This is happening in Template:Infobox single in Hebrew Wikipedia (https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/תבנית:סינגל), see example in this article: https://he.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Toy_(שיר)&oldid=23358444.
