Description Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2003-01-02 10:28:14 UTC
Mozilla and Galeon as shipped in phoeve immediately crash when visiting the
given URL.

Comment 1 Ivo Sarak 2003-01-05 00:11:04 UTC
Not crashes for me (Phoebe upgraded from RedHat 8.0).

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2003-01-08 16:16:49 UTC
I've done it on two different systems with fresh phoebe installs (both having
existing accounts and galeon preferences, though)

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2003-01-08 16:45:13 UTC
Just looked at the page now, and it worked. I've also seen it be totally stable
a couple of days on some newspapers, while consistently and repeatedly crashing
other days (usually on specific articles). This leads me to believe that it's
related to dynamic content on these pages, IOW ads.

No state really suits a bug like that... it's definitely a bug, but without
definitive way to reproduce it needs to be closed.

Might have been a flash ad?

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrød 2003-01-08 21:31:20 UTC
Maybe. Note that flash was not installed on any of these systems.
