Thanks to Passpack user Tim Robertson (aka FunkJedi) two bug fixes were rolled out yesterday: a misplaced Chrome back button alert, and the IE6 non-secure items alert.
Chrome Back Button Alert
The problem Tim ran into was that Google Chrome was giving him that error even though he’d not clicked the back button. Then it would repeat every 3 minutes or so. This was an odd bug as both Francesco and I use Chrome, and neither one of us has ever run into this issue.
By changing a single call, Francesco was able to fix the problem. If you’re interested in the technical details, here’s what he said was happening.
IE6 Non Secure Items Alert
While debugging the Chrome issue, Francesco discovered that the iframe the jQuery history plugin was attaching to the page body didn’t have a src attribute. That’s normal, but IE6 produces an error in these cases. So we added a src by modifying the plugin… and all is now fine and well.
