Bug 31424 - Anecdotal evidence of IE 8 problems

Hi everyone,

We need your help. We have a number of reports on the various village
pumps, helpdesks, Twitter, and such that IE8 users are experiencing
crashes merely by visiting our site. Here's the bug report:
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=31424

Given the frequency and diversity of reports, there is almost
certainly something to this, even though we don't yet have a solid
repro case that a developer can actually use to fix this.

Here's what we need. If you are actually seeing crashes, we would
love to know exact browser version (e.g. IE 8.0.7601.17514), exact
operating system version, all plugins installed and their exact
versions, and how much RAM your machine has. Please report your
findings either in the bug report above, or if you're more comfortable
on-wiki, then here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#If_you_can_make_IE_crash_pretty_reliably_we_need_your_help.

Thanks!
Rob

I updated the bug, but it looks like this was the issue:

http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/9823

So, now we must upgrade or downgrade (carefully!)

It's a one-line fix, see
https://github.com/jquery/jquery/commit/5c4a9cc001fcd803efa65ff95571c72cbdafbe69/
. Can't we just patch this into our jQ copy in 1.18wmf1 and do a full
upgrade on trunk?

Re: Bug 31424 - Anecdotal evidence of IE 8 problems [In reply to]

Just to note: we deployed an upgrade to jQuery 1.6.4 earlier today, which
appears to have stopped successfully the IE 8 crashing for people who were
able to test with us.

There was some slight breakage in UploadWizard, which has been patched.
