settings - apps - android system webview - uninstall updates
this drops it back to the version that came with the last major OS update for the phone, not the last individual update through google play. that may be farther back than you want to go, on an older phone.
Android 9 here. Android system webview is disabled. So far as I understand Chrome has replaced it from Android 7 onward. I have uninstalled Chrome updates and that solved the issue. Cannot completely uninstall Chrome since it’s part of the OS (Android One).
Completely agree. This is getting ridiculous. I’m extremely frustrated with the lack of attention. The last comment from Samuel Clay was two weeks ago with no update since then to even say he is working on it. I understand he was on vacation for a week, but he has been back long enough to devote some time to this.
So the good news is that we’re working on it and should have an update out within the next week (I hope!). What happened is that Google pushed out an update to Chrome that caused our web renderer to misapply a style. But the issue is that we need to upgrade to a later Android API in order to release a new version and that’s a substantial chunk of work, of which we’re in the process of completing. I promise that this is our highest priority and we’re working on getting it fixed ASAP.
A temporary fix is to use the dark theme, but I realize that’s a non-optimal fix. But it works for now.
If you’d like to follow the ticket that’s tracking this issue, it’s on Github:
I’m pushing as hard as I can to get this release out. We’re relying on @ojiikun, since he has the fix nearly complete. But there’s a possibility this goes another couple weeks, at which point I’m going to have to go another route to get it fixed.
I’m not a complainer, but I’m really disappointed in how long this is taking to fix. I’m tired of having to use dark theme to be able to use NewBlur on my Android phone and tablet. It’s been well over a month. I pay a yearly subscription for this and I expect more. There hasn’t even been an update for over a week. You need to do better.
