    Strange one.. wanted to report in the java problem thread but no way to post..

    This is the only site which causes a segfault on loading some java module.. which causes a browser immediate exit.

    Only other clue I have.. it has been happening for a few days since that annoying pop in from the side box displaying lower right with an annoying ad in it has gone walkabout.

    Like I say.. it's the only site I use which does this.. Normally I would put it down to having not enough ram, but I can use facebook fine.. and wordpress blogs..

    Epiphany browser on Ubuntu 2.6-32 kernel and Cinnamon desktop. Latest "official" linux java too.

    I can't be bothered running strace because it gives me the same result.. something is calling a faulty java module, or is trying to create a buffer underrun.

    Anybody running windoze experienced any odd malware type attacks recently?

    interesting.. I'll have to hunt this down.. I'm having to start up my browser on pretty much every page move tonight. It takes me 3 or 4 attempts to read a thread. *off to have a look in my browser logs* .. trouble is it just exits so it doesn't get to log anything

    Code:
    Mar  2 02:07:38 juliadream-laptop kernel: [ 2571.577192] x-www-browser[1935]: segfault at 0 ip 01837044 sp bf899b30 error 4 in libwebkit-1.0.so.2.17.9[ee6000+d8a000]
    Mar  2 02:09:05 juliadream-laptop kernel: [ 2659.590462] x-www-browser[1998]: segfault at 0 ip 018b2044 sp bfdbaac0 error 4 in libwebkit-1.0.so.2.17.9[f61000+d8a000]
    Mar  2 02:16:25 juliadream-laptop kernel: [ 3099.444459] x-www-browser[2061]: segfault at 0 ip 01885044 sp bfefba90 error 4 in libwebkit-1.0.so.2.17.9[f34000+d8a000]
    Mar  2 02:20:10 juliadream-laptop kernel: [ 3324.298350] x-www-browser[2152]: segfault at 0 ip 01859044 sp bfb96350 error 4 in libwebkit-1.0.so.2.17.9[f08000+d8a000] 
    As you can see it's something to do with a standards compliance by the look of it triggering something the browser code doesn't like. I will investigate further.

    Finally got to the bottom of it. The java error was the last thing which was loading before stupid proprietary adobe flashplayer got upset about an ad in an iframe.. The problem is common across most versions of the 11.xxxxx flashplugin, the cure is to replace with 10.3.183.18 from adobe archive.. and it's then back to the full system lockups that heap of garbage causes instead of unusable browsers.

    Problem solved.. just reporting in that I found the problem.
