Should I report this as a bug? This app (see pic below) has the buttons missing when run on iPad. When run on desktop browser, the buttons show up fine. Note missing combobox button and grid paging buttons.

Has anyone else see the same type of behavior?

Here's what causes the invisible button problem.

Add the following meta tag to the top of your ZUL:

<?meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes"?>

Bring up your test page in Safari on the iPad, and bookmark that page to your home screen. Then, open the page through your home screen. (I had done this because it is the only way to get a page to maximize on the iPad.)

If you have the given meta tag in your ZUL and then open it from the home screen, you’ll see that no buttons appear. But, if you leave that meta tag off, it shows the buttons in the app.
