Unable to Load Certain Websites with WebView

(Doc ID 2308878.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 23, 2017

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 8 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When using the WebView method of JavaFX, certain web pages do not display.  Even though the state of the underlying engine says that the page is loaded completely nothing is being shown in the WebView and no errors are being shown.  The same page can be viewed without problem in common browsers such as Chrome and Internet Explorer 11.  Common or uncomplicated web pages, such as the Google home page, display in the JavaFX WebView without problems.

This was tested on Java SE 8 Update 121.
