Only first 100 folders being displayed in Firefox

Just tested with Firefox on Windows on demo.seafile.com and unfortunately it did not work and only first 100 files got listed.
Can check with Firefox on Ubuntu on Saturday and post the result.
Just to be sure I do the things correctly, I open the folder with 100+ files, get first 100 listed, then click on the arrow down on the scroll bar and the expected behaviour would be to see the rest (which does not happen for me), right?

Yes, thats the behaviour it should have. It shows some more items when you reach the end of the page.
Can you please check if there are any errors in the browser console?

I was also facing the same issue… See the browser console

This issue are also when you trying to watch pictures in the “big thumbnail mode” I don’t remember the name for it, it’s not the list mode it’s the other one.

Since the last browser updates it doesn’t work for me anymore.
@daniel.pan do you know why it’s not working?

Hmm, funny thing is that it’s now working again with my seafile installation (updated ubuntu from 17.04 to 17.10). What’s going on there?

It’s related with CSP. Your CSP setup bloking some frames.

We have still same issue. After update Chrome and Win 10 to Fall Creators update issue persists. We steal don’t have any request called after scroll to bottom and no JS error. I think there’s some random issue with cache.

As scrolled link effect is creating a problem in firefox, i am planning to load the complete page at once, can someone help me as to where to modify the code.

I’m on Linux Mint 18.3 with Firefox 57.0.4 (Seafile hosted in Yoursecurecloud) and I don’t have this problem, neither for files nor for folders. When I get to the bottom (every 100 items) the rest gest loaded.

The problem is with firefox in mac.

I found that on a windows 10 Laptop there is one folder in which the bug occurs, and in another folder everything is fine. And then there is one folder, where the bug occurs only in the details view, not in the tiles view…
On another PC the folder not working on one laptop is working.
So what is going on there? :o

It’s the same for firefox in Windows and Ubuntu also.

I can confirm that this problem occurs with both Firefox 57.0.4 and Chrome 63.0.3239.132 on Windows 10 Pro (64bit) Creators Update (updated). It works fine on Opera 50.0.2762.58 and Microsoft Edge 40.15063.674.0 on the same OS.

I solved this for our computer. It caused by ZOOM page for us. User accidentally zoom page to 110% so you cannot see big difference(only little magnify icon in URL bar). So I hit CTRL+0 to reset zoom into 100% and loading start working. SO please try to check you zoom. Maybe that can be your problem too.

Looks like this can be helpful for the devs.

A working zoom is mandatory.

Yes, zoom seems to be the problem. If I zoom out to 80% in Chrome the folder scrolling starts working. But when I go back to 100% it stops again. Maybe it’s because my Windows GUI is scaled to 125% (which is quite normal given the resolutions these days). In any case this shouldn’t be happening…

Can confirm. Linux&Firefox and high dpi monitor, with zoom does not work. But after resetting the zoom to 100% files load normally.

I have this problem too, which makes the web interface unusable for many purposes.

In general, continuous scroll is not a good solution for large folders anyway, and the (older and more reliable) paging model works better when you have a large number of items (ability to jump directly into the middle or end of a long list; more efficient in terms of memory etc.). Could we at least of the option to specify whether to use continuous scroll or page scroll (either on a server or use basis), please!

I absolutely agree with you mdovey. This type of scrolling would have made sense (efficiency wise) if the folder list was downloaded in portions through ajax. But as far as I saw the list is loaded in one go so there’s no point in doing it. Better just display the whole list right away or indeed make standard pagination navigation with links, which may not be as fancy but is less error-prone and more flexible…

Any update on bringing back a paged interface for large directory lists?
