Hard crash on Reuters

Support and discussions for the Apple Mac OSX builds of Pale Moon

Important note:
The Mac OSX version of Pale Moon is still very much in development. Your assistance in bringing this build to fruition is greatly appreciated, but you can expect there to be bugs and problems for a while yet!

Any specific bugs you find that don't have their own topic yet: please make a new topic; one bug per topic please to keep things organized.

Please also note that these builds are currently created by Sugis and Moonchild will likely not be able to provide insight or assistance due to lack of Mac hardware and OS/build knowledge for Mac.

Hard crash on Reuters

Unread postby mike18xx » Tue, 10 Apr 2018, 21:19

Reuters pages, such as this one, crash-quit the browser every time: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... SKBN1HG336

This has been going on for several versions now. (Using 27.8.3 at the moment.) The same page does not crash or have loading problems on any of Brave, Chrome, Firefox, or Waterfox.

I have not tried the Windows version of NewMoon/PaleMoon.

No Midori-esque suddenly-disappears-issue for me, when I just tried it.

I forgot to say that this is with Windows 7 SP1, and with NoScript blocking everything except the basics. The issue may be a malicious script...

Cheers.

Well, that's a problem: you shouldn't need NoScript (the unpalatable thermonuclear option), or a strangled-to-a-tiny-few extensions, to deal with this stuff.

(I note that the other respondents not having problems are using obsolescent versions of their respective OS.)

Just checked the page w/ "obsolescent" 10.6.8, fresh profile, w/o any add-ons. No crash, but problems in so far that page keeps loading resources forever, then fans start running loudly.

Must be a problem on the thread starters end as others are not experiencing issues.

The website works fine for me on High Sierra 10.13.4, which is the most recent macOS. Yes, it takes a minute to load fully. Also, I'm using my own compiled Pale Moon (without any code modifications, though).

I can't think of a more unhelpful way to recruit supporters than to dump on their OS or the number of extensions they use. Are you trying to make enemies? Sheesh.

Can you please point out to me exactly where I am "dumping" on anybody by observing that various OS are obsolescent?

"Snow Leopard" (Mac OS 10.6.8) is six generations behind current, and Win7sp1 is three generations behind current (over half-a-dozen if you included major service-pack releases).

The ability of this browser to run well on a "clean" system, without extensions, or with NoScript installed (making many pages unusable), or with a user's homebrew compile ...isn't the really the issue. The issue is tracking down what the problem is when it *does* crash. In my own case, it has been crashing consistantly with Reuters pages. I run a great many extensions, with multi-row tabs in TabMaxPlus (said extension capability behind the major reason why I'm using PaleMoon/NewMoon).

The best way to test if it's a problem with the browser or with an extension is to try it with the browser in Safe Mode. If it works there, it's an extension issue.

I get no crash with Pale Moon 27.8.3 on Linux Mint 18.3.

Edit: Windows 7 SP1 may no longer be the latest version of Windows, but Pale Moon still officially supports it.
