Appendix C - Browser IssuesΒΆ

A browser related bug has been reported which causes some of the form fields to be reset to their default values when the users presses the browser back button to return to the previous form input page.

This is due to a bug in the web browser, rather than in the ETC. We recommend using one of the following browsers, which have been observed to demonstrate the correct behavior (back button appears to remember the previous form settings):

  • On the Mac:
    • Using Mavericks (10.9):
      • Safari v7.0
      • Firefox v24.0
    • Using Mountain Lion (10.8.3):
      • Safari v6.0.4, 6.0.5, 6.1
      • Firefox v20.0 – v24.0
    • Using Lion (10.7.5):
      • Safari v6.0.4, 6.0.5
      • Firefox v20.0 – v24.0
    • Using Snow Leopard (10.6.8):
      • Firefox v6.0.2, v22.0
      • Safari v5.1
    • Using Leopard (10.5.8):
      • Firefox
  • On the Linux platform (2.6.9-78.0.8.ELsmp):
    • Firefox v3.6.23, 17.0.9
  • On the Windows platform:
    • Using Windows 8.1
      • Internet Explorer
    • Using Windows 7
      • Firefox 24
    • Using Windows XP
      • Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11
  • General
    • Firefox 23.0.1

Please be aware of incorrect behavior on the following platform/browser combinations. Please do not use these versions in order to avoid encountering problems in your work:

  • On the Mac:
    • Using 10.9.5: - Chrome 49.0.2623.112 (64-bit)
    • Using Mavericks (10.9):
      • Chrome 49.0.2623.112 (64-bit)
    • Using Mountain Lion (10.8):
      • Chrome 49.0.2623.112 (64-bit)
    • Using Lion (10.7.5):
      • Chrome 27.0.1453.116, 30.0.1599.101
      • Safari 6.0.2
    • Using Snow Leopard (10.6.8):
      • Chrome 27.0.1453.116
    • Using Leopard (10.5.8):
      • Safari v5.0.6: Problem reported with defaults being reset in some fields
  • On the Linux platform (2.6.18-194.3.1.el5):
    • Firefox v3.6.20: Problem reported with defaults being reset in some fields
  • On the Windows platform:
    • Internet Explorer v7.0.5730.13 showed several issues (using the STIS Spec input form as an example; the same issues may show up in other instruments since many of the forms are shared). After a wavelength warning is produced, the warning does not disappear when the user updates the wavelength range. In addition, upon pressing the back button, the wavelength checking appears to reset to the default Filter/grating range, while leaving the selected button as the users choice.
    • Internet Explorer 10.0.9 on Windows 7
