[Galaxy-user] other "random" problems

Belinda M. Giardine
Periodically when I go back to Galaxy from the results I either get the
error text I sent the other day or no tool panel.  I don't see a direct
cause or conditions when it happens.
The other thing I have been noticing that on submitting a query sometimes
the history panel doesn't refresh and I have to click refresh to get the
latest query added.

Belinda, I think you computer/browser settings must be causing this.

I'm not one who would be eager to jump to this conclusion just because
I do not see this problem buth the magnitude of the issues, their
visibility and the lack of similar reports suggests that this has to
be specific to a certain browser/computer setup.

Certainly the HTML/Javascript code is fairly complicated, there are
some neat effects and there are plenty of workarounds that were needed
to make them work identically for most browsers (not just to render
properly but to also cache certain files for optimal performance).

We should probably take another close look and evaulate the interface
on an even broader variety of os/browser combinations. Maybe we should
tone down some effects or maybe we should detect browsers and simplify
the templates accordingly

Istvan.
