Access Restriction Public


There appears to be a race condition within IE's implementation of IndexedDB that prevents simultaneous access to and IDBFactory.deleteDatabase, even for databases with different names. The "open" request's onsuccess, onblocked, and onerror callbacks are never fired.

The workaround is to queue all access to and IDBFactory.deleteDatabase, but this is painful from a developer's point of view and is not required on Chrome or Firefox.
