Android app Sign in ▾ UI widget fails to appear using https yet OK using http


There is a Cordova issue when trying to deploy onto Android which I have tracked down and can now see same issue in the default Meteor example app :

When deployed using https through nginx the Account sign-in widget
which should appear on the initial screen (see screenshot below)

          Sign in ▾ 

fails to appear on Android yet appears and works OK on desktop browser
… without https although still using nginx it is OK on Android and elsewhere.

This issue is causing our app to just hang on Android using https showing a blank white screen saying


and never reaching our initial login screen … our iOS app and any desktop browser is OK using https … its just Android which is failing

Has anyone seen this issue ?

here is browser with https using nginx with Sign in widget inside RED circle

here is Android with https using nginx Notice missing Sign in widget

here is Android with http using nginx Notice it correctly has Sign in widget

I am leaning toward believing its a Meteor / Cordova issue since my app is fine using iOS … in any case here is my nginx config using https
