I never got around to doing anything with it.
We have a few gaming sites and I wanted to have one userbase between them all.
I've noticed that this site, plus my own, freezes when accessing using Android based devices. Quite why, I do not know, but was wondering if anyone else had witnessed this with their own forums, or perhaps here ?
In most cases on my own site, the forum locks completely, and then the browser crashes. Iphone seems fine with no issues at all.
Anyone else experienced this ?
Does it happen when you open any page? Chrome browser I assume?
@PitaJ not every page, but more often from the same user. Here's an example
Happens in chrome, edge, brave, dolphin....
Interesting. I think I'm seeing the same freeze you're describing. I see it in Chrome, but not Firefox.
I believe it's related to the service worker PWA stuff.
@PitaJ Thanks. I see errors in the console for the service worker also. Will try Firefox and see if I can reproduce this there.
EDIT: Works with no issue in Firefox, so I think you're on the right track. I'll raise a GH ticket to report this.
FWIW seems to work fine in Vivaldi (and Chrome on my device).
I'll add that feature flag as discussed in the issue, and we'll see if that functions as an acceptable workaround.
@julian Thanks. Odd that it works for you Guess I'm just unlucky. My main issue is the sheer populace of Chrome as a browser, and Android devices forming a couple. Nobody has complained yet to me directly, so I could be having this issue all on my own, but I think it's best to be safe given @PitaJ can replicate (on my site at least)
Mayhaps the main issue is the Android platform itself? The security advisories coming down the pipe from US-CERT since escalation of Russian and Chinese sponsored cyber warfare/terrorism have numbered in the hundreds. The goog seems to be struggling on this front whilst Apple (not a fan) seems to have cleaned up most of theirs.
