Microtasks are supposed to run on a clean stack. However, Safari flushes microtasks synchronously if you append an iframe to the page. This breaks expectations for libraries like React/Preact, and possibly others:

- https://github.com/facebook/react/issues/22459
- https://github.com/preactjs/preact/issues/2814

Here is a simple repro:

queueMicrotask(() => {
  console.log("--- in microtask ---");
console.log("will add iframe");
const iframe = document.createElement("iframe");
iframe.src = "localhost";
console.log("did add iframe");

You need to run it with http server to repro. It doesn't repro from file://.

Expected output:

will add iframe
did add iframe
--- in microtask ---

Safari output:

will add iframe
--- in microtask ---
did add iframe
