easily crash Browse and Firefox
|Reported by:||thomaswamm||Owned by:||erikos|
|Priority:||high||Milestone:||8.2.0 (was Update.2)|
|Component:||browse-activity||Version:||Development build as of this date|
|Deployments affected:||Action Needed:||reproduce|
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.
