Time picker flickering - Grafana 9.5.3 time picker flickering in offline system

I’m running Grafana 9.5.3 on a server without internet access. The time picker is flickering / flashing very quickly. See screen capture.

I see that this si a problem that has been hapening to people also in the past several times but no solution.

Any ideas why I’m getting this result?

My installation is based on public docker image. Default configuration.

Hi @johanjeppsson,

Welcome to the :grafana: community support forums !!

We are excited that you joined our OSS community. Please read about some of the FAQs in the community :slight_smile:

Is you server is accessible locally without internet? i.e. can login to your grafana server without internet?

The server is accessed locally and without internet.

Hi @johanjeppsson

Based on your steps of reproduction, I was not able to reproduce it on my test machine.

Here are my steps:

1- Wifi on

2- Setup docker with Grafana v.10.0 on local env (no virtual machine etc)

3- Can access grafana via localhost and as for test setup TestDB Data source and able to create a Random walk panel and change the time picker (no issues)

4- Bring down the Docker Grafana container

5- Disable Wifi

6- Docker Grafana container again up

7- Able to login and access the panel

8- Found no issues with the time picker flickering

I used Chrome’s latest version 114 and Firefox version 102

I have tested both:

Grafana 10-oss preview
Garfana 9.5.3 oss

They both fail.

I have tested browsers: firefox and edge

I deploy in docker on Ubuntu/linux

My suspicion is that this is related to the fact that it doesn’t have internet access. The server is isolated from internet. This is my main difference from other installations I have. All my other servers have internet access and behave normal.

Can you please share your docker-compose.yaml file?

It’s just a docker start script:

ID=$(id -u) # saves your user id in the ID variable

docker run -d \
  --name=grafana-10 \
  --user $ID \
  --restart=unless-stopped \
  --network=mgmt_net \
  --ip= \
  -p 80:3000 \
  -v grafana_volume:/var/lib/grafana \

docker network connect --ip data_net grafana

There is a similar case in the history. It’s also running on a complete private network:

They upgraded the browser and didn’t see it again. However they never root-caused the issue.

In my case I’m running Edge browser.

Chrome works in this case and Edge showse the problem.

So I installed Chrome browser and now the issue is not visible anymore. See attached GIF. The upper browser is Edge and the lower one is Chrome.

Chrome: Version 114.0.5735.199 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Edge: Version 89.0.774.68 (Official build) (64-bit)

Might be worth checking why this is happening.

Hi @johanjeppsson

Thank you for narrowing it down and able to identify that the issue is within the Edge browser :+1:
