The "Edit" button isn't working for me in Chromium.


The "Edit" button isn't working for me in Chromium. When I use Chromium and I click the "Edit" (edit post) button, an AJAX loading gif appears beside the "Edit" button and spins forever.

If I load the same page in Firefox and then click the Edit button, it works just fine.

I am using Slackware 14.1 32-bit, and this Chromium package in particular:

Code:

Is anyone else using Chromium seeing this behavior? Are you blocking javascript in any way in Chromium?

This is also happening to me on another forum. I don't know which forum software LQ uses, but the other forum displays this string:

Code:
Powered by vBulletin® Version 3.7.2
Googling for it produced this:

https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...tail?id=128606

Like other people who have experienced this, I've found that clicking the Edit button again (when the AJAX loader is spinning) causes the Edit box to actually show up. So, in effect, with Chromium (or at least, that Chromium package), I have to double-click the Edit button to make it work.

Just tested it with Slackware 14.1 64 bit and AlienBob's Chromium 32.0 package (stock, no extensions installed), same behavior.

I am compiling a new version of Chromium at the moment (32.0.1700.107, just released) with
Code:
-Duse_system_libxml=0 -Duse_system_libxstl=0
instead of my earlier
Code:
-Duse_system_libxml=1 -Duse_system_libxstl=1
Let's see if that makes a difference. Well, let's first see if it compiles at all!

I can already tell you that my new package has solved these issues with the vBulletin software:

- clicking the 'Edit' button works now.
- clicking the thumbnail for an attached picture shows the picture in a lightbox, instead of only displaying a dark grey area where the picture should have been.

Compiling the 32-bit version now, and then they will get uploaded to my repository (Slackware 14.1 & current).

Eric

PS: edited this post in the new Chromium just to prove that the 'Edit' button works now.
