Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1811) Previously hidden select dropdowns crashing the webview when focused upon
Date Mon, 05 Nov 2012 22:26:12 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-1811:

Yes and no. There are a few primary builds of the browser based on what device tree they're
based on.  All Samsung devices should have the same build, and since I tested it on Samsung,
I would be tempted to say that I can't reproduce it.

Nexus devices are based on AOSP.
HTC and other Qualcomm based-devices are based on the CodeAurora Android tree.
Motorola and other OMAP based devices are based on the OMAP Android tree.
Samsung Exynos based devices are based on their own special Android tree.
Intel Atom based Android devices have their own tree.

In addition, certain other manufacturers will also have other special trees, such as the LG
Optimus 3D, which has its own webkit that slows down input and output from the WebKit bridge.
 This drives me up the wall, since I can't just tell people to root their devices and run
CyanogenMod (yet another Android tree, based off AOSP).

> I have a div panel that is hidden when a page is first shown. Inside the div are a few
html dropdowns (select tags). When I make the div visible (via javascript) and focus into
one of the dropdowns, I get the following logcat error:
> 11-04 03:58:49.136: A/libc(18437): Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV) at 0x00000000 (code=1)
> Then, the app just crashes and the webview disappears. I confirmed that this happens
when the parent div is initially invisible (display:none). If the div is visible at first,
all works fine, even if the div is hidden subsequently.
