Several problems with 18.0.3

Nextcloud version: 18.0.3 & 18.0.2
Operating system and version: debian
Apache or nginx version: nginx 1.17.8
PHP version: 7.3.14

The issue you are facing:
Since version 18.0.2 I noticed several small problems (all tested with firefox and chromium):

  • hovering favorites and shares in the sidebar has a weird hover effect (external storage, newest and all files are normal)
    EDIT: This is no Bug, I just did not notice that these can be expanded.

  • The new file menu is slightly outside the screen for public shares:

  • Creating a file called “” will open the editor with infinite loading icon and this error in the console: TypeError: can't define property "compiled": Object is not extensible[core.js:597:4](webpack:///node_modules/lowlight/lib/core.js)

  • The text for sorting by modified date is behind the icon for changing the display mode from list to grid view (possibly only with german language).

Are these bugs known? I couldn’t find the editor opening bug anywhere, so it seems more likely there is something wrong with my configuration.

The output of your Nextcloud log in Admin > Logging:
Only a bunch of these messages, which seem unrelated:
[no app in context] Debug: Deprecated event type for \OCP\Files::postWrite: Symfony\Component \EventDispatcher\GenericEvent

you mixed multiple questions into one topic.
Better create one for each of your questions and gave them well describing topic titles.

So we can start with the first one:

Cannot reproduce it. Can you tell us your browser versions? Latest?
Are you able to make a small video or describe it more detailed?

That’s expected. It’s a indicator that the shares has sub items. I recall a issue on GitHub about that. Seems to confuse more people :wink:

I don’t see the connection to the initial posting. Feel free to report a issue on GitHub. You might skip most server related stuff from the issue template. But posting the gif over there would be nice.

Sorry for mixing questions. I mainly wanted to know if all of these are because of a configuration error on my side. Now I set up a clean install of 18.0.3 and found that the arrow that irritated me is used to expand the shares and favorites menu :roll_eyes:. So no bug there! The other issues however also occur with the clean install.
My browser version is 73.0.1 for firefox and 80.0.3987.132 for chromium.
The graphical issues are no big deal, but the error when opening files other than .md and .txt is a bigger problem.

I have the same problems, use it wit IE edge.

All of them? Please help us by not mixing issues.

Confirmed. Would you mind to report this at GitHub? See

Ok, I’ll create a issue for this problem.

Yes, all of them
