    Since the last AppBuilder update, I have noticed in multiple applications that upon closing an InAppBrowser, the entire app reloads.
    I even created a project with multiple HTML files (index.html, test.html) where I used the InAppBrowser in the "test.html" file. When I closed the InAppBrowser, the app reloaded and I was redirected to the "index.html" file.

    I also noticed this bug whenever a plugin presents a view controller and then dismisses it such as the "QR Reader Plugin" that comes with AppBuilder.

    Can anybody please tell me if they can reproduce this issue?

    Another thing I noticed is that this bug appears only when the project is built in "Debug" mode. Once I built the app in "Release" mode, this bug disappeared and my app worked as expected.
    The problem is that I need to quickly "refresh" my app every once in a while and I won't be able to do that while my app is built in "Release" mode.

    Hi Nader,

    Thank you for reporting this. I followed the provided by you steps and indeed, the app is being refreshed after the InAppBrowser window is closed. This appears to be a regression introduced in the latest AppBuilder release. The good news is that it is now logged and a fix for it should be implemented soon.

    Until then, the only workaround is to use the AppBuilder Companion App for iOS in order to test such functionality inside your project.

    I hope this helps.

    P.S. For reporting a bug on our side, I have granted you some Telerik points.
