Fixed Media slider not showing content

Affected version


Hi, I‘ve configured the media slider widget in the forum list sidebar.
Media slider configuration is: random, 1 item, max. 1 item, no auto play, no loop, no pager


When refreshing the page, the media slider does not show the image, only sometimes. It occurs that a browser tab switch or a browser back and forth navigation makes the image appear.
I‘ve tested with multiple browsers and themes.
Once I‘ve changed the configuration to more than one image, then it works better.

I can confirm this with Chrome 63.0.3239.132.

It appears to happen on first ever visit, on returning to the site after a while and I can get it to occur with ctrl+f5 too, again this is all intermittent.

Once it has loaded once, every regular refresh afterwards works fine.

This might be fixed in MG 2.0.4.

I noticed it a lot here, but I haven't since some other changes were made to the media block here, last week.
After updating to MG 2.0.4 (likely next week) let us know if the issue persists.

It seems to work fine, thank you very much :) (Firefox 59.0.2 (windows 10) and iPad Air 2)
