#5046 closed Bug (invalid)

Safari iOS6 web interface freezes

Reported by: Celyr Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.60
Severity: Normal Keywords: Ios 6 safari web interface


On the new safari mobile web browser shipped with iOS6 the web interface is just freezed, the commands issued actually works (just the first one) but there is no feedback from the server. To get an updated view it's necessary to clean the cache and reload the web interface page.

According to a workaround is to explicitly tell Safari to not do any caching.

The attached patch seems to work for me.

I don't think it's a good idea to implement this workaround, maybe it's better to wait for apple to fix this bug (because it's for sure a bug). Let me explain: this workaround would be released on the next version, that it may be tomorrow (but probably it will be not) but most bleeding edge distribution will start to pick up transmission 2.62 or 2.70 next month or so, for that time I suppose apple wil fix that and so the fix it's just pointless. That's just IMHO and I don't want at all to make the work of who provided the patch useless but I would no merge it.

Have a nice day

I agree with Celyr. This is a bug with Safari that Apple needs to fix. KyleK's solution is simple and non-hacky, but we shouldn't need to send it according to the spec.

I'm going to leave this open to see what Apple does, but right now I'm against having to work around an Apple bug on a new OS.

iOS 6.0.1 didn't fix this. Although this does appear to be Apple not following the spec, it might make more sense to just be more explicit on our end.

  • Version changed from 2.60+ to 2.60

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Since it's iOS's bug rather than Transmission's, and since 6.1 is apparently coming out RSN, and lastly since disabling caching creates a different set of problems, IMO we ought to mark this one as Invalid.

6.1 is finally officially out. T web interface is back to normal on iOS.
