MobileFrontend often only showing a blank white page on iPhone
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I try to access, I intermittently get a completely white screen. If I refresh a few times, it'll sometimes load. It seems to be more commonly not loading than loading.

I'm using an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1.4 and private browsing enabled. I tested with a friend's phone (iPhone 4 of some kind) and had the same issue. Not sure how to diagnose the issue from my phone.

Is this only MediaWiki.CSS and did it only surface Friday? If so I have a theory involving some js added to mobile.js for the privacy policy on that day...

I'm only hitting this issue on I noticed the issue on Saturday, September 7, I believe.

This was most probably caused by bug 50746.
