Doing email with New Moon on Ubuntu today, I encountered a problem that I frequently have with it. The attempt to load certain pages, expecially links from Facebook, often cause the browser to disappear from the screen. Relaunching will go through the browser pages leading up to the problem one, then bye-bye browser again.

I wondered whether it would be the same in Fienix's New Moon. Yes. Well, how about Arctic Fox. Ditto. Firefox ESR is a bit more friendly, tells me it encountered a problem, offers to let me relaunch. When I do, guess what happens. I ended up trying to look at the site on my phone, where it doesn't crash, but the screen is too small.

What I was trying to see was a link from an AARP message, https://videos.aarp.org/detail/video/60 ... dy-workout. Is there anything obviously wrong with that URL? I'm going to try collecting a list of the ones that cause this problem.

Hi All,

Wicknix released a pre-release version of Arctic Fox 27.9.18 two days ago.

Wicknix wrote:There's an issue with a Mac specific patch that's holding up .18's release, but for the eager beavers on PPC Linux i just built a "pre-release" version from our master branch. Give it a spin. If anything, you might notice some javascript improvements. Currently around 200 bug fixes have to been added at this point in time.

Download (PPC Linux only): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WLmKz0 ... sp=sharing

Cheers


Link to the test thread: forums.macrumors.com

Download: arcticfox-27.9.18a1.linux-powerpc.tar.bz2

Please test it.

Thanks,
Christian

I don't think Matt intends to continue New Moon development; instead focusing on Arctic Fox and SpiderWeb. However, since this issue affects Arctic Fox, it would be helpful if you posted a bug report listing the URLs that cause a crash. Arctic Fox Bug Report
