Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1834) External Links Crash App/WebView
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 19:24:12 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-1834:

Unable to reproduce on the 2.3.7.  That being said, this application appears to have serious
performance issues, and that may cause random issues on low-end devices to to the lack of
memory.  On the HTC EVO 4G, the scrolling was slow and the application was generally unresponsive
due to the numerous images and gradients used.  If you just had an HTML page with a single
link where the target was _blank, do you get the same result?

> Any external links (links not set in the config.xml whitelist and with target="_blank")
will open a new browser window (as expected) but will crash the app.
> It seems specific to this build number and the OS/Webview. Another 2.3.6 phone does not
do this.
