I want to note that I am able to reproduce this issue on a RHEL 6.5 client with firefox 24.2.0-1.el6_5, it looks like a browser problem, not something in RHEV-M (how can a web page be responsible for crashing the whole browser?)

Comment 4 Evgheni Dereveanchin 2013-12-17 17:16:51 UTC
changed product to firefox since the whole browser crashes which cannot normally be caused by a web application.

For now downgrading back to firefox 17 can be used as a workaround:
# yum downgrade firefox

Tested with clean profile + safe mode (only tested with clean profile before). No crash in safe mode. In the mean time, the spice plug-in is not disabled in safe mode and works if I toggle a remote console. This is the only plugin installed. Info in "Help > Troubleshooting" is exactly the same for both safe and non-safe mode.

What else could I test?

Yes, we can reproduce it, thanks.
