Ticket #8003 (closed defect: fixed)
easily crash Browse and Firefox

I did $ sudo olpc-update joyride-2301
I have Q2E12.
I can often crash both Browse and the sugarized Firefox by typing the following into the location box:
Browse usually just freezes the XO, requiring power off/on to recover.
The sugarized Firefox produces a brief console terminal display that says something like "fatal X server error, caught signal 11", then it apparently reboots X-Windows, and Sugar restarts.
The website changes daily, and often has Flash content. It has been an acid test ever since I got my XO. This defect is not new to joyride-2301. A computer should not be crashable by any website. Unsupported features like Flash content should just be ignored without crashing.
