Java on/off add-on crashing Pale Moon on Arch

Unread post by fatboy » 2018-10-11, 06:51

Good Day Community,

I have been experiencing this problem for quite some time, but only realized what caused the "weird"crashes. It is the Javascript on and off add-on.
Unfortunately, I don't have any debug info, but it's fairly easy to replicate.

Enable the JS add-on (green), Open Bookmarks, open 5-10 pages quickly after each other, then click on the add-on icon to deactivate JS. Sometimes, this will induce PM to crash. I think it has to do with websites that are loading using Java and when it's turned off, then the browser crashes?

Anyone else having this issue? Haven't had the same problem on Windows though.

Kind Regards,
Fatboy

Per your subject line (vs. what the thread context seems to indicate), JavaScript is not Java (unless whatever extension ? you're using also toggles ? Java?).
