FormsLauncher Iframe Applet Window Showing Up In Home Page Left Top Corner After Launching Any Form (Doc ID 2142286.1)

Last updated on JUNE 20, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Applications Framework - Version 12.2.5 to 12.2.5 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Upgraded from a 12.1.3 to 12.2.5 and noticed the formsLauncher iframe applet window is showing up in home page left top corner after launching any form. 

This iframe window does not go away even after closing the form.

The only way to get ride of it:
1. Close the window and login again.
2. Reload the home page window.
3. Navigate to some other page from home page and come back to home page.

html source looks like
<iframe name="formsLauncher" width="5" height="5" title="Forms Launcher" id="formsLauncher" src="https://<hostname>/OA_HTML/blank.html" frameborder="no" scrolling="no"></iframe>

Possibly because of missing visibility=”hidden” property this is happening.
