Problem Description
When our html5 games made with Construct game engine are opened via the telegram native browser (Android version 5+) and is opened via the bot, after some minutes the game crashes in native telegram chromium browsers, but at the same time the same game has no problem and does not crash when it is opened in a new chrome tab via telegram. The point is that we have tested different games from native games to those made with other game engines opened via the bot in Telegram, all are fine and do not crash, except Construct.

If it works in a normal browser tab this suggests Construct 2's code is correct and that the telegram browser is the problem.

Also bugs which involve reproduction steps like "wait 30 minutes" are far too time consuming to investigate - we could easily need to try the steps 20 times over while diagnosing it to resolve the problem. We certainly can't afford to do that only to find it wasn't a problem in our code anyway. Closing as won't fix.
