Known issues

Nov 02, 2015

The following issues are known to exist in this release.

Cannot use an ampersand (&) in a featured app group title (3.0.1 only)

If you include an ampersand (&) in a featured app group title when using Manage Featured App Groups to define the featured app group, an error might occur and the app group does not display. Workaround: Do not include an & in featured app group titles. [#603366]

Using Receiver for Web within an iframe

Receiver for Web does not support Internet Explorer 7 and using iframes on an intranet site causes Internet Explorer to switch to the Internet Explorer 7 document mode by default (no X-UA-Compatible meta tag defined and compatibility mode set to always on for intranet sites). [#570682]

Workaround: Use the X-UA-Compatible meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=10; IE=9; IE=8" />
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge" />

Reconnecting apps in the Chrome browser might fail

When using the Chrome browser and reconnecting to published applications from XenApp and XenDesktop servers, clicking Connect for the applications might only reconnect the first session when more than one session is being used. [575364]
Workaround: Click Connect again to reconnect each additional session being used.

Activate Citrix ICA Client link might not work in non-English versions of Firefox

Some non-English versions of Firefox install the Addons Manager by default. You might not receive a response when clicking Activate the Citrix Client on the Activate the Citrix plug-in screen. There are three workarounds (the first being the preferred method) [#494376]:

  • Click the block-like icon in the address bar and choose an option for Allow <server> to run Citrix ICA Client.
  • Remove or disable the Addons Manager.
    1. Click the menu button and choose Add-ons.
    2. The Addons Manager tab opens.
    3. In the Addons Manager tab, select Extensions and click Remove or Disable on the Addons Manager page.

Third-party ad blockers might prevent users of older versions of Chrome from seeing StoreFront logon dialog boxes

This prevents a store from being accessible to users. As a workaround, users can either disable ad-blocking software or add an exception for the desired service domain to the ad-blocking software's configuration. [#319305]

Receiver for Web sites may be slow to respond on Internet Explorer 8

Users running Internet Explorer 8 may find that Receiver for Web sites containing a large number of desktops and applications are slow to respond when browsing the store or entering search terms. [#274126]

StoreFront deployed on Windows Server 2012 R2 affected by Certified Trust List (CTL) changes

Caution: Editing the registry incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Citrix cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use Registry Editor at your own risk. Be sure to back up the registry before you edit it.

Windows 2012 Server does not by default send a list of trusted CAs during the SSL handshake, resulting in the Linux client failing to provide a client certificate. The changes to Windows 2012 Server are documented at What's New in TLS/SSL (Schannel SSP).

Windows Receiver clients will work if a CTL list is not sent to the client. For the Linux Receiver client, it is necessary to enable the CTL list as described in the above link.

The following registry edit is required:

Value name: SendTrustedIssuerList
Value type: REG_DWORD
Value data: 1 (True)
[# 460064]

Linux with Firefox does not auto launch the desktop session on Storefront 3.0.  AutoLaunch fails to use the native receiver. The session will always fall back to using the HTML 5 receiver. [#70504789]
