Dolphin v11.5.0: Dolphin Browser Adblock and Other Issues Fixed With Latest Android M Support
Issues with Dolphin Browser Adblock and other compatibility with Android M have been fixed in the latest Dolphin Browser update.
On October 5th, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 9 owners were among the first to receive the update. Foreseeing potential compatibility and stability issues, our devs at Dolphin Browser ran numerous tests. Now, our devs have fixed the most critical issues with Android M and Dolphin Browser, and both v11.4.22 and v11.5.0 (just released on the Google Play Store) should work like a charm on Android M devices.
Other than Dolphin Browser Adblock, What’s Fixed?
Here is a list of some of the biggest issues we fixed:
- Crash issues that stemmed from:
- Inputting text in the address bar or within text boxes on websites
- Launching Dolphin
- Browsing resource-intensive websites
- Link redirection: if a user had another browser set as the default browser, then opening any link within Dolphin would automatically redirect to the default browser instead of staying within Dolphin.
- AdBlock: the Dolphin Browser AdBlock Add-on was not visible in the Control Panel (in the right side bar), even though it was installed. (Click here to Install Dolphin Browser Adblock.)
- Disappearing keyboard shortcuts: the extra shortcuts that appear above the keyboard (e.g., www, .com, back and forward arrows) would disappear when typing on Dolphin. Unfortunately, our devs had to disable the keyboard shortcuts for the time being due to stability issues.
- Error when disabling permissions for storage or location: there is a new feature on Android M that allows users to disable or only use certain permissions a single time vs. every time. There was an error message when attempting to disable permissions for ‘storage’ or ‘location’, which our devs have corrected.
- Dolphin Connect login failure: the Dolphin Connect extension on Chrome was experiencing issues. Users would not be able to tab push (devices showed up as offline) after login. The extension was also showing the circle looping infinitely instead of successfully logging in. This has all been fixed.
The above fixes should address the major issues between Android M and Dolphin Browser, but feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our social media accounts if you encounter further issues.
