Unable to load Meteor site in Safari/Firefox (Works fine in Chrome/Edge)


#1

Hey all,

We are having a serious production issue with our Meteor 1.3 (and now 1.4) application when trying to access it from Safari or Firefox. The current production version of our application works fine under Meteor 1.2.1 on both Chrome and Safari.


We are now using version 1.4 of Meteor and the following are a sample of the many ‘undefined’ errors we see in the browser console:

However we don’t see any of these issues in Chrome or even Microsoft Edge browser… Any ideas please?

Ok, looks like I have found the source of this error in one of our npm packages that we are using. In the index.js of the package it has a “use strict” at the top of the file and then uses the const keyword in the file after that. It seems that this causes issues with Safari so for now we are reverting back a couple of commits on this npm package to before they introduced this change…

Hope that helps anyone else who has this problem…

Cheers
Rick
