Safari-web browser issue

Recommended Posts

I have an issue with Dragon Cave when using the Safari-web browser on a Mac computer. On all the pages, the scroll-background is completely missing. I have no idea how this happened since it wasn't an issue until yesterday when I noticed it. Before that, DC looked perfectly normal on Safari. This issue doesn't happen on my phone's Safari as it uses different background. I also want to inform that this issue happened on two separate computers, on both the website was messed up.

This problem isn't a major one for me as I use Chrome on DC most of the time, but when my computer uses Safari as the default browser and opens teleport links on it, then it has become a bothersome issue. And yes, I know I could use a different theme, but I don't like them too much and prefer the classic DC look.

 

Here are two example screenshots to show what I mean with this bug. I have no idea if other users are experiencing this, if they are, I'd like to know if I am not alone with this problem.

What version of Mac OS and Safari are you using? I am not able to reproduce this in Safari on Mac OS Big Sur.

Could you have accidentally blocked the background image on your computer - and that would leave whatever background you chose showing on other devices ?.

On my laptop that doesn't want to update anymore I've got Safari 15.6.1, and it's showing the same issue. Seems like it's not liking background-image and/or image-set.

What you have highlighted is the spec-compliant image-set syntax which is only supported by Firefox (Chrome and Safari ignore it). Safari should still support webp as of 15.6.1, and if it didn't support `-webkit-image-set` it simply wouldn't parse it but your screenshot indicates it indeed is.

 

When I said Big Sur I mean Safari 14.1.2 and I've also tested on Monterey 16.2, so I have doubts that it's some version incompatibility.

I've had the same issue as well recently.

I'm running Mac 10.13.6 and Safari 13.1.2 (my computer also will not update any further) - maybe my browser is too outdated now?

My Mac version is 10.14.6, it is older computer for sure.
As for Safari, the version is 14.1.2

The computer isn't really the issue, it's safari- you should be able to install a more recent version of another browser, like chrome or firefox.

Yup, I found that Chrome works decently, so I guess I'll switch to that for DC :)

Yes and no--Safari is intrinsically tied to MacOS, as it happens. For example, Safari 14 on MacOS 11 (Big Sur) is fine, but Safari 14 on any older MacOS is not, because Safari only supports webp images on Big Sur and up.

 

Regardless, the versions mentioned here are several years old and even if they weren't having issues with images I would highly recommend against using them. Older browsers that are out of vendor support are potentially insecure.
