Description (last modified by mario)

When the user visits, ABB crashes. No crash report is asked for, so this could be a memory issue. Please find attached the Jetsam report. Sometimes the user can load the page and then wait 1-2 seconds before the crash occurs.

Currently, this only occurs on the device listed below. On other devices, it can occur only once or not at all.

*Please note, this also occurs on Opera for iOS which suggests that this is a general Problem with the UIWebView component.


ABB 1.3.2
ABB 1.3.1
ABB 1.3.0
iPhone 6 Plus
iOS 9.3.1

*Also occurs on Opera for iOS

How to reproduce

  1. Install ABB 1.3.2
  2. Open

Observed behaviour

When visiting, ABB crashes.

Expected behaviour

When visiting, ABB should not crash.

Caused by UIWebView and thus only indirectly fixable. Lowered the priority.

@scheer, can you confirm, that this is fixed in iOS 10?
Unfortunately I cannot find any change logs/reports regarding iOS 10 fixing memory issues in UIWebView.

@mario - I was not able to reproduce this at all in the following setups:

iPhone 6s
iOS 10.0.2
ABB 1.4.0-QA (1032)

iPhone 6s
iOS 10.0.2
ABB 1.5.1 (1137)

iPhone 6s Plus
iOS 9.3.4
ABB 1.4.0-QA (1032)

iPhone 6s Plus
iOS 9.3.4
ABB 1.5.1 (1137)

*Note that ABB 1.4.0-QA (1032) was the oldest version I was able to check this against as the others had expired.
