Browser Compatability

Postby obleak » Thu Sep 16, 2004 9:00 am

Hi All,

Does anyone know if Apple's Safari browser is fully supported in GO 2.05?
I'm considering upgrading mainly for broader browser support.

I think it's time for a browser compatability table - I can't seem to find one anywhere.

Here are the browsers I have personally used with GO 9.1
(yes old I know, but the modules I use work fine for me):

Windows:
Firefox 0.91 : Works
Mozilla 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6: Works
Netscape 6.1/2: Works
IE 5.5/6.0: Works
Opera: ?
Avant: ?

Linux:
Firefox 0.91: Works
Mozilla 1.1/1.7: Works
Netscape 6.x: Partial, dropdown menu (now redundant) misplaced, everything else ok.
Konqueror: Works
Opera: Works

OSX
Firefox 3+ works
Mozilla ?:?
Netscape ?:?
Safari: Works
IE ?:?


Feel free to post a known working browser chart for your version of GO.
Once there are enough hopefully an admin will make this sticky

opera v7.54 for linux is only partially working at best.

The HTMLarea defaults to plain text, many visual glitches, etc. Not sure I'd put it on the "works with" list for G-O.

---

From my Damn Small Linux install, I also know that Firefox 0.8 worked with everything except the HTMLarea...it didn't even give me a "plaintext" option the way opera did.

Just for fun, I loaded up Knoppix 3.6 and a spare system and had a look at my G-O installation with Konqueror. Everything seemed to work, but overall it seemed a little glitchy visually (table alignments and borders, etc). I had to fiddle with my browser identification string to get the HTMLarea editor to turn up, and as far as I could see it was only coming up as the plaintext form window.

It'd be nice if we could get G-O working on at least one of the older/lightweight browsers (links -g, dillo, older firefox, opera) for making older machines into functional office-drones.

Group Office 2.05 Browser Compatability

Postby obleak » Fri Oct 08, 2004 6:59 am

Hello Everyone.
I have been running GO version 2.05 for a few weeks now and have some browser compatability infomation for you. Browser support is certainly much wider.

I also noticed GO now uses mozilla's wysiwyg html editor which required a bit of a tweak to firefox to allow pasting into the composer. Items marked with an asterix (*) required the modification. You'll know if you need to tweak firefox if it pop's up a dialogue box when you first try to paste.

The 'fix' is to create a file called 'user.js' in your profile directory with these lines in it and restart firefox:
user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "allowclipboard");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites", "http://your.website.url");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.cutcopy", "allAccess");
user_pref("capability.policy.allowclipboard.Clipboard.paste", "allAccess");


Linux:
Mozilla 1.3/1.7 - Works
Firefox 0.91/0.93/1.0rc - Works*

Mac OS 9
Mozilla 1.2 - Works

Mac OSX
Safari - Works (yay)

Windows
Firefox 0.91/0.93 - Works*
IE 5.5/6.0 - Works
Mozilla 1.6 - Works

I'm expecting a bit more feedback from our users so I'll update this as info comes in.

O.

PS thanks admin for the sticky.

Safari not compatible

Postby millahtime » Tue Jun 28, 2005 10:28 am

As of GO 2.13 Safari seems to no longer be compatible with the email module. The email module does not display the body of the messages.

You're right. It woul d be great if you could do some testing and tweaking. I tried GO on Konqueror which uses the same engine as Safari and it works with konqueror.

GO works fine with Maxthon. It's based on IE, but even easier to use. I've also tried Avant Browser and that's OK with GO as well.

Sorry for not being more adventurous :wink:

Interesting thing: I've installed GO 3.3.1 on Ubuntu and have such results using Windows browsers:

FireFox 3.5.5: when I start GO I get an error "The Group-Office javascripts were not loaded. Check the host property in config.php"
IE 8: I can login to GO as admin, but the alert appears in JS: error in compess.php and stops. After refresh it logins but other JS alerts appear: in tiny_mce_gzip.js and in TinyMCE.js
Safari 4.0.4: Perfect login, no errors! But when I write an e-mail the undo function (ctrl+z) does not work
Google Chrome 3.0.195: The same as Safari

How can I solve this errors in Firefox?

PS: I've tested online demo of GO 3.2.37 it perfectly works in firefox and undo function works as well. But "ctrl+z" does not work in safari and chrome (

Please check your apache log for errors. You must have some misconfiguration or the /home/groupoffice/cache directory is not writable.

I don't get any errors in IE6,7 and 8.

Microsoft has been making a lot of changes to their IE8 software, one of those changes has been JavaScript security.

Nevertheless, IE8 is supported and should work fine. Did you change the security settings?

Browser Compatability

Postby dahas » Wed Dec 08, 2010 11:40 pm

On mobile phone none of them dont work corectly.
Iphone 4
Default NO
Opera NO
Skyfire NO
Android
Default NO
Opera NO
Firefox beta 4 NO
Nokia
Default NO
Opera NO

For Android and Iphone (Ipad) double click is emulate by 2 fingers.
For rightclick dont know yet.
The most problem we get with changing from portret to landscape. When all go away. Cant see all tabs and betwen tabs (of modules) and the place of opened module is a gap filled with big fonts.

The interface is indeed not suitable for mobiles yet. Although it seems to work a little on an iphone or n900. But the screen resolutions are too low.

What is your plan for fully supporting "high" resolution touch-based devices (Safari on iPad for example)?
