Bookmark properties fail to be fetched when adding new bookmark in Android #78
Steps to reproduce
Browser properties (eg. Title, description) are successfully fetched from webpage at URL and set in the appropriate fields.
The notification "Fetching bookmark properties..." (see screenshots) does not disappear.
After roughly 10-15 seconds, error message stating "Can't get URL metadata..." (see screenshots) is shown.
Client app information
App Platform: (Chrome, Firefox, iOS, etc)
Android Pi on Huawei.
App Platform Version:
Tried to add URL from latest Brave browser.
@nakhan98 thanks for logging this. Yes this has been an issue for a while due to Cordova's InAppBrowser plugin not working correctly. It's supposed to load the bookmark url in the background, execute a script against the loaded page to grab the metdata and then pass it back to xBrowserSync but it has been unreliable recently.
I'm putting the finishing touches to the v1.4.1 chrome/firefox extensions which I'll then release, and then I'll look at updating the android app and hopefully I can get this resolved or find a workaround.
