Only happens on my new iPad 14.4.1 with Safari on the Home Depot website. I can open HD website fine but when I search for a particular product, the screen is blank. Sometimes the correct screen will appear for a split second then disappear. This does not happen on my wife’s old iPad Pro with 13.7. Also doesn’t not happen on my new iPad using Chrome. Doesn’t happen on my desktop. Only happens on my iPad, iOS 14.4.1, Safari on the HD website. Does anyone have a clue? I have erased all contents and restored from an iCloud backup, changed all kinds of settings, etc, etc. Nothing works except Chrome browser. Thanks.

I did a little experimenting. Looks like you need to turn off Block All Cookies in Settings > Safari

I had to reload the home page after returning the setting to my usual before the strange enteral blank loading page went away.

I also suspected Block Pop-ups, but it does not seem to have any effect.

As an alternative, you can download and use the Home Depot app from the App Store.

Ok, I think I found it. I turned on every experimental feature for Safari and Home Depot works fine. If I turn off all experimental features, the HD glitch returns. But, here is the rub. I never touched the experimental features. Some were turned on apparently as a default when I setup my brand new iPad. The HD problem started a week ago. Yesterday I turned off all experimental features when I discovered some were turned on. I made this discovery while messing around in Safari trying to fix my problem. So now all of my experimental features are on which makes me uncomfortable because I don’t know what they are or what they do. Guess I could turn off one at a time to see which one or ones affect HD but that would take forever.

So, does anyone know what these Safari experimental features are and which ones may be causing the HD glitch?

Ok, using wife’s iPhone with same version iOS, I matched which experimental features were turned on. Problem solved. Despite what the internet and Apple say, Safari is compromised if you turn off all experimental features. Still don’t understand why problem started since I had not changed any experimental features, Go figure.
