4.   Known Issues / Inconsistencies

The following is a list of the major known issues / inconsistencies in DS 7.12.5:

  • In Firefox, groupings of items in the Timeline Monitor may be truncated
  • In Chrome and Safari, items in the timeline may appear in GMT instead of the user’s time-zone
  • More than one user may create an Asset or Threat Group of the same name, so that group names may list more than once on screens supporting group filter drop-lists, especially if groups have been enabled for public access
  • In deployments where a) a customer has a long list of jurisdictions, b) some of those jurisdictions have sub-jurisdictions beneath them and c) a user has access to enough jurisdictions that the jurisdiction filter drop-down list is forced to scroll, the sub-jurisdiction sub-menus do not scroll properly to match with the parent item. The sub-menus still appear and are accessible, but they are not properly aligned
  • When using Firefox to access the Monitoring section, your mouse wheel may not work as expected. In Internet Explorer, the mouse wheel correctly zooms in and out of the GIS display, but in Firefox the wheel may cause the page to scroll
  • Certain screens within the application do not display optimally in older browsers, for instance:
    • When using Internet Explorer 6, you may need to scroll to the far top to access a pop-up window.
    • For Firefox 2.x, filter drop-downs do not open when clicked upon.
    • The Monitoring section does not function in either Internet Explorer 6 or Firefox 2.x.
    • Both of these browsers suffer from insufficient support of web-based standards, and users are highly encouraged to upgrade to a more current browser.
    • The top menu may appear behind the Geo-Monitor in Chrome
