Description Brion Vibber 2012-10-30 17:03:04 UTC
Went to look up a code review request on my Surface tablet (Windows RT) and found that Gerrit doesn't seem to like IE 10 much.

An alert pops up:

  "ERROR: Possible problem with your *.gwt.xml module file.
  The compile time user.agent value (ie8) does not match the runtime user.agent value (ie9). Expect more errors."

Hitting OK dismisses the alert, but the Gerrit UI doesn't finish loading and you can neither read nor update the patchset.

I doubt anyone upstream has used IE10 yet ;-)
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2012-10-30 17:17:11 UTC
"IE 10: it's not half bad, but it's still IE." :)

I'd be less miffed if Windows RT let you install alternate browsers. *cough cough* Ah well I'll just use my real computer for code reviews for now. ;)

Comment 4 Chad H. 2012-10-30 17:45:31 UTC
Identical bug. It happens on every IE release :\
Comment 5 Chad H. 2012-11-19 16:03:46 UTC
Looks like GWT doesn't support IE10 yet. GWT 2.5.1 looks like it will, though[0]. Don't know when the release will be (they said September :() or when it'll make it into Gerrit.

Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2012-11-19 19:18:46 UTC
therr's a suggestion to enable compatibility mode; might try futzing with that in the meantime.
Comment 7 Chad H. 2013-01-03 13:25:55 UTC
You could also try client-side browser detection. This has come up on the Gerrit list.
Comment 8 Chad H. 2013-01-29 16:14:49 UTC
This is in progress upstream:
Comment 9 Chad H. 2013-02-12 15:16:16 UTC
Please test with IE10 :)
Comment 10 Brion Vibber 2013-02-12 17:25:33 UTC
Confirmed IE 10 can now view gerrit. :D

Tested desktop IE on Windows 8 Pro.
