Steps to reproduce

  1. Has to domains and
  2. Create at main page with iframe.
  3. Create at ‘test’ page contain somewhere
<use xlink:href=""></use>
  1. Load (by src tag)to main page in iframe our ‘test’ page from

Got BUG result: SVG not rendered.

Its problem a continuation of my posted problem:
Difference is that: xlink:href now has absolute URL and file svg-pack.svg load correctly (code 200).

But if load our test page directly - SVG rendered.

if switch EDGE to IE11 mode - all right with render svg-use icons in iframe.

    • Thank you for reporting the bug. We already track this issue internally, so I am going to dupe this to our internal issue. Best regards, Francois.

    • I’m also having problems with that in Microsoft Edge 41.16299.15.0.
      Any updates?

    • I’m also curious if there are any updates. This is a pretty egregious bug, and it hasn’t been fixed in well over a year. People use SVGs and icons in real life, you know?
