firefox and id giving troubles

Posted by kujaz2 on 9 July 2014 in English (English)

all of a sudden, editing with ID in firefox is impossible. no keyboard shortcuts will work, the mouse pointer will remain in hand shape, clicking on an object shows the short arrow while the left key is pressed, but no selection takes place. instead, the attributes of the first object that was clicked are shown, but mixed up with other, totally unrelated attributes (e.g. maximum speed for a house). what's happening here?

Same issue here.

The only temporary solution i have is to reload the browser, then the first few clicks will be able to make selections.

First things first, you should report bugs in the appropriate issue tracker - for iD that is https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues and for the main web site it is https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues.

If this started happening this morning then this is presumably related to iD 1.5.0 which was deployed a few hours agao - that said it is working for me in FireFox 30 on Linux. Indeed that is where I smoke tested it before I deployed the update.

That should say https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/issues for the main web site of course...

I've now tried this in Firefox 30 on Windows as well and that also seems to work fine. Can somebody that can reproduce this please report it to https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues with as much information as possible about your environment and how to reproduce it.

I can't click on the icons like "Website", "Phone" etc. but I'm pretty sure it's Firefox 29 or 30 fault, because that was when the problems started and that wasn't the only issue (Addons, History etc. also causing trouble).

@AndiG88 That was a separate bug (https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/2247) in the previous version of iD that I believe should be fixed in the new one!

So I think we have nailed it down - it only happens when you are using https and there is a bug report at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/2281 and a fix at https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/pull/2282.
