PM crashes Google News

Post by luke2136 » 2020-09-16, 19:58

PM crashes hard on Google News site everytime clicking on "View Full Coverage" at the bottom of grouped news items. Currently using 28.13.0 on W10 but the problem has existed for a long time - previous versions. Seems to be even worse now. Same on W8 and W7 machines so does not seem to be OS related. An annoyance more than a huge problem but still would be nice to see it corrected. Somestimes a pop-up appears about a problem with a script - do you want to stop script. Thanks - fyi

It does hang the UI thread pretty badly multiple times as it is loading "Full Coverage" but there is no crash of any kind. So the reports of a crash is most certainly Fake News :lol:

EDIT: Poking a bit into it more shows there is likely a reflow/repaint storm by js controlled building of the dom triggering a flood of reflow and repaint causing a flood of reflow and repaint causing a flood of reflow and repaint.. But if you outlast the hang cycles it will function normally once it has finally completed the flood of shit it was asked to.
