VK.com - some dialogs are unaccessible

Unread post by Psycho-A » 2021-06-13, 14:16

In the last weeks, I began to notice that when trying to update the profile avatar, the dialogs for uploading and editing images has stopped being displayed. When you click on the "Update photo" or "Make as profile photo" buttons, a dialog box appears for a split second, and then disappears. On different versions of the browser, the behavior is the same, safe mode without addons also doesn't affect. At the same time, in Firefox or Cent Browser everything is fine.

VK is closed social network, you need an account to check the issue.
There are developer's test account, so hope this will help:
Login: test@vk.com, Password: N5ddx2R

To reproduce:
1) find some user's public with images posted there;
2) save this image to your "Saved photos" album;
3) go to this album from your "Photos" left menu and open saved image;
4) click "More" menu and then "Make as profile photo" (I don't know how it's in english version truly, but something like this).
The editing photo dialog must be opened. If no, that's it.

Other way is to hover mouse on your profile's avatar on your page, then click "Upload photo" button.

There's developer console log when I'm clicking last button:

minified blob over over a million characters in a single line of code. You expect us to be able to analyse that?

I don't know, I've just reported the problem.
Maybe there are some different ways like adding some compatibility layers and testing site work.

Get them to fix it or tell us what we are missing.
I'm sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

I've reported to their technical support (with these logs), will see...
It's the largest East European site, they usually were good in web compatibility, this is the first serious issue with PM there.

Not really. But it's the go-to social media site for Eastern Europe IIUC.
