iPad Safari truncates tab content on lengthy documents

Reported by: tr888 Owned by:

My website uses jQuery UI Tabs to organize some fairly large documents (e.g. 75K) into sections, each of which has a corresponding tab. The pages work fine EVERYWHERE (Opera, Chrome, FF, IE, Safari for Windows, Safari for Mac) but not on iPad Safari, where the tab-content is getting truncated. The pages validate as 4.01 Strict.

I have a jsFiddle project demonstrating the problem:

The [Glossary] tab's contents should go all the way down to the letter -Y- but it cuts off in the letter -H- on the iPad.

It is as though iPad Safari is "remembering" the tab pane height from a "shorter" DIV and applying that height to the DIV that is being made visible, even if the DIV-to-be-made-visible is lengthier than the previous one and should have greater height.

Here is my actual website:

Version tested on jsFiddle is 1.8.9 -- don't see how to edit the version here, which reads 1.8.11. Sorry

This means my site is pretty much useless on iPad, a platform I'd really like to target; my site is text-centric and scholastic/academic oriented. So I'd like to consider this worse than a "minor" bug but I don't see how to change the priority to "major". I don't understand the bug-reporting interface; for example, why is there a radio-button (*) "leave as new" under Modify Ticket? Aren't single-choice options usually represented by a check-box, with radio-buttons being reserved for multiple mutually exclusive options?

I tested today at the Apple store on the iPad2 and the page works fine. This isn't to say that it might not stop working on the iPad2 at some point, if, say, it were a caching issue. But I believe this isn't a jQuery bug but an Apple issue.

I tried this on my ipad and it only shows in the example window. If you use it works fine.

Resolution: wontfix

Closing as it sounds like all the research is showing that this is a limitation that only occurs in iframes that can't be worked around and is fixed in newer versions.
