APKMirror Issues on ODP3

bug

#1

Using the latest Brave version on the Play Store in Android 8.0 (Developer Preview 3) and going to apkmirror.com displays nothing but an unusual white box, which will flicker and disappear as you scroll down, or sometimes fill the top half of the screen (as in the screenshot). If you tell it to request desktop site, it then displays normally. Probably an issue with android itself, but figured I’d mention it given that “O” will be out soon…

@Nemisor - do you have trouble with any other sites or just this one?

Also, please provide the device you are using, thanks!


#4

Device is Nexus 6P. I’ll see if I can reproduce it on other sites. I can confirm that Opera Mini Beta has the same issue on APKMirror, but Opera Beta does not. I didn’t think that Opera shared the same rendering engine as chrome, but I might be wrong…


#5

Also, could you check this site using Chrome if possible? It would be good to know how it behaves there as well.


#6

Chrome v58 won’t even load apkmirror.com at all, Chrome Dev (v60) has the exact same unusual display issue as Brave. Screenshot seems to get truncated, but there it is.

Thanks @Nemisor

I logged an issue for this, it can be tracked here: https://github.com/brave/browser-android-tabs/issues/275

I’m going to close this thread for now since we have the github issue. Thanks for the information!
