Works for me. Do you have steps to reproduce this problem reliably?

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by keystroke

Interesting, it actually only crashes with NoScript set to disable all Javascript. When Javascript is enabled it works fine. Can you try with Javascript disabled?

comment:4 Changed 6 years ago by keystroke

I did some further analysis. I reset my NoScript to default settings (as I had some custom stuff in there). It did not crash with default settings. So I tracked down the setting which makes it crash: under the NoScript options in Embeddings, select "Forbid <IFRAME>". This is all that needs to be done to make it crash, provided scripts are disallowed globally. I've replicated this several times now using the site listed above.

When "Forbid <IFRAME>" is enabled this crash also happens with the latest Tor Browser Bundle 3.0alpha3.

Works for me (still). Tested with the 3.0alpha3.

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by keystroke

Thanks for testing again. Just to confirm, this is with Noscript enabled and "Forbid <IFRAME>" enabled?

Not sure what you mean with "Noscript enabled" but I followed the steps in comment 4: I disabled scripts globally, selected "Forbid <IFRAME>" in the NoScript options and opened the problematic URL.

comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by keystroke

Yes that is what I meant. Default settings on NoScript except Forbid IFRAME and disable scripts globally. Is there a way I can send additional debug information? What OS are you on?

I used the same as you, Win8 64bit + TBB 3.0alpha3. Regarding debug information: Do you get errors in the error console (CTRL + SHIFT + J) that are only there if the TBB is freezing?

The first 4 errors are on starting TBB, the final 2 are when the page begins to load successfully but occur several seconds prior to the actual crash.
