Description User image Zac Spitzer 2015-11-18 15:03:29 PST
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0
Build ID: 20151029151421

Steps to reproduce:

An existing web app which works fine with Safari and the Chrome Safari wrapper is throwing the following error on a window.openDatabase call (web SQL)

SecurityError: DOM Exception 18: An attempt was made to break through the security policy of the user agent.

Suggestion from around the web on trying to use a 4mb initial size instead of 5mb didn't help, seems changing the Safari privacy settings may help, but there isn't any UI to change this in Firefox for iOS

Unfortunately this is out of our control. We have to reach out to our WebKit colleagues and see if they are interested in fixing this for the WKWebView.

Adding a new webkit whiteboard tag to keep track of things that need to be fixed in WebKit.
