Possible bug, page is not displayed

Unread post by Apprentice » 2021-10-27, 02:01

Palemoon on Linux! Tested with Palemoon without any modification, running directly from the binary as new installation!

Is not displaying the page on this link: https://imgur.com/a/QKSHCtc

I noticed that since v.28.16.0 up to the current version. The informed link page was created in Palemoon and was displayed in earlier versions that I have informed up, I can not remember which version at the moment.

Thanks.

It's because of the use of a rather arbitrary property of the Navigator object which imgur simply does no feature checking for and their script as a result breaks down.

Code: Select all

TypeError: navigator.credentials is undefined

not displaying the page
The page displays for me after opting out of Imgur's beta by visiting here: https://imgur.com/beta/disable.
See this thread.

What is a "Palemoon"?

The problem is kind of bigger than it seems, I realized that there are many other sites that are giving the problem with images not appearing

Telegram is not appearing in the browser: https://web.telegram.org/k/
This site also does not display images: https://medium.com/@nathancheng/the-cure-for-type-2-diabetes-is-known-but-few-are-aware-5dd3064328b6

The solution presented above for me none of them worked
Disable or even the script, because, only partially displayed, it continued to hide the images

Telegram's web interface will not work properly because it is chrome-focused.
The medium site you pointed to is also using a chrome-ism (in regex) that we currently do not yet support.
Unfortunately web compatibility suffers due to websites' focus on the Blink engine and features we are still working on implementing but are not ready yet.

If the browser doesn't work for your use currently then please look around for a different browser in the meantime.

Not sure what script you refer to.
The workaround in the above-linked thread does work for me, and involves changing the value of certain cookies.

Please re-read the entire thread carefully.
And if relevant for you, please note this post where someone reported that an extension interfered with the workaround.

Posting correctly in the proper board; And searching the forum:

@Apprentice,
Please take the time to familiarize yourself with this forum's layout (board subject areas), its Rules, and its search function (especially advanced search).

The board in which you posted, Browser Development, is reserved for "Pale Moon source code development related" matters (see light red box with dark red text, top of page). Support requests and/or web compatibility issues should not be posted here.

In this case, your issues should have been posted in the Web Compatibility Support board, one thread for each website/specific issue that didn't already have an existing open thread (so search before posting - imgur.com (search) and telegram.org (search) did already have open threads for your same issues and didn't need additional ones.)

Also, when you do post about problems with specific websites, please include the site's name in the thread title, and include console output in the opening post as per instructions for that board.

This was useful information. Now I understand better how/where to address some issues I observed. Perhaps this info could be summarized in a newbie thread so newbies like me dont keep repeating known issues as the search function for this forum requires some experience in forums wording ?

There's nothing to summarize given that all websites slavishly implement the latest non standard toy er, draft spec introduced by Chrome - follow the instructions in the red box on the forum page on how to submit a problem report and do so in the correct sub forum. 'Web compatibility' is for broken websites only while 'browser support' is for problems with the browser itself that are not related to individual websites (such as slowness or video issues for example).

The Credentials API's password access is particularly dangerous and should never be implemented, as it exposes your saved plain-text passwords to javascript. It's too bad, because the cryptographic key section could actually be pretty useful.

In order to "gracefully fail" credentials calls, I made DumCred. It adds the credentials object to navigator and the expected functions, but returns null (or in one case undefined) promises, as per the existing draft "spec".

Hopefully this API will be abandoned, or at the very least heavily amended.

Works! Thanks.
