#649 closed defect (fixed)

Some websites are broken on Safari due to dispatching "error" event synchronusly

Description (last modified by sebastian)


Safari 7
Filter lists: EasyList and EasyPrivacy

How to reproduce

Go to

Observed behaviour

The website is rendered empty. That is because the website hides its content, while loading Visual Website Optimizer (a script blocked by EasyPrivacy). There even is a fallback to make sure that the website is shown again if this external script fails to load. But that code expects the error event to be dispatched asynchronously. However we dispatch it directly from inside the beforeload event, which is triggered synchronously as soon as a resource is created.

Expected behaviour

The website should be shown also when the Visual Website Optimizer script is blocked by EasyPrivacy.
