iCab 3 crashes when loading
Closed, DeclinedPublic


None of the sidebar elements (including the navigation elements are present in the page when rendered on NetFront browsers, such as used by the Playstation 3, Nintendo DS and many phones.

The editinterface neatly falls back to the old toolbar btw.

Version: 1.17.x

Just a note that iCab seems to be in the same category:

<NewUser> iCab 3.0.5 @ MacOS 9.2.2 (that browser is 2 years old) - the page is totally unusable, I even cannot create an account. No link is woking etc. and you know that counts also for PS3 and mobilephones - they even cannot access wikipedia naymore, so just put a link to the old layout anywhere and work with cookies, to at least make wikipedia avilaible for us

A fix for the PlayStation 3 was checked into r67576. It seems there may still be a problem with logging in on a PS3, however. Could someone verify whether or not this fixes the Main Page on a PS3? on Nintendo DS?

Vector seems to work fine in iCab 4. Unfortunately, I can't test iCab 3 since it will only run on older OSes.

iCab 4 is the first iCab version that uses WebKit instead of their own proprietary render engine.

iCab 3.0.5 crashes completely when loading, so it's nearly impossible to debug the problem

Revising bug title to focus on just iCab 3 since other issues have been resolved.

Seems highly unlikely to me that we will ever fix this.
