    Hi,

    After deactivating and uninstalling the plugin, there still seems to be traces left. I note that when accessing pdf links on site, superpwa-sw.js is still being called, and the chrome browser is using service worker to download pdf, which fails for all pdfs. How can I remove the last traces?

  • Have you tried this:

    1. Open Chrome Inspector
    2. In Inspector tool bar, select Application
    3. In left-hand sidebar select Service Workers
    4. Locate Source: superpwa-sw.js and next to Status click Stop
    5. In left-hand sidebar select Clear storage
    6. Leave all items selected and click Clear site data

    Also: There appears to be an issue with Chrome on both Mac and Windows regarding PDFs. When the Super PWA service worker is active, PDFs will not open in the browser window unless they are stored on a CDN or other domain. Other browsers seem to be okay.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello @squibs

    The service workers are installed on the browser and what @detroitwidget will help with the removal. I will add a detailed documentation for this soon.

    This seems to be the issue for the removal. Thanks for reporting guys. I will check this out.

    Thanks @detroitwidget and @arunbasillal. Can confirm that the issue is resolved by using a CDN and that it’s chrome specific (or at least firefox is not affected).

    Just coming back on this ticket, as I’m still having issues after deactivating and deleting the plugin. superpwa-sw.js is still being called and not being found. Where might this call be coming from? I believe it’s responsible for a more serious error in another plugin.

    Thanks.

    Hello @squibs

    The service worker might still be installed on the browser. This is how to uninstall it – https://jmp.sh/IxhGvRv (Remember to close all tabs of the website on the browser after clicking unregister).

    If that’s not the case, please clear server and page caches.
