View Full Version : [ubuntu] gameex.net causes firefox 3 to crash

September 11th, 2008, 01:09 PM
if i try and visit www.gameex.net (http://www.gameex.net) firefox 3 crashes on my machine.

in a big way it just folds up and vanishes.

i have reported it to bugzilla at the Mozilla site

can anyone confirm this happens to their pc please.

using Firefox 3.0.1 from the ubuntu official repos

i wonder if it is worth my while cos i really like using firefox if i install the windows version of firefox using wine so i can view sites like this and prevent it from crashing and also get rid of the annoying bug of when scrolling with the mouse the browser jumps backwards and forwards on its own.

i must try this tonight when i get home

confirmed on ubuntu 9.04 with latest firefox build.

seems to also crash epiphany, so perhaps its a problem with the rendering engine?

It does not crash at firefox 3.5 BUT you can't view that tab/site :)
