CEF Returns an empty tree when page was opened using javascript: protocol

3024590

Question / Problem: 

CEF cannot retrieve a tree when window was opened using javascript: protocol. This is possible calling javascript document.write() method. When a document created using this method browser refuses to send IPC message to renderer process, due to invalid has_renderer_ flag initialization, which is false by default and it is set to true only when on load event happens. In this case onload is not fired. 

Answer / Solution: 

This is a Bug: Bug 1498773: CEF Returns an empty tree when page was opened using javascript: protocol

It was reported in 10.7.0.2 and fixed in 11.1.0.0 and 11.2

 

Workaround:

Create page and save to file system. Then you can open it using file:/// protocol and start working with the page
