Web browsers crash when viewing certain web pages

tmick's picture


If i use either IceWeasel or Epiphany there are certain pages like monster.com that will crash the browser. The only thing I get if I run from a command line is "Illegal instruction" and that's it. Nothing else.
I have installed Chrome to see if that changes anything and I can view some pages in it fine other than it tells me I'm missing a plug-in. No it doesn't tell me which one, of course.
I have flashplayer non free 1:2.8.2 installed and Sun-java6-jre also
uname -ra
Linux ddebian 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Sun May 6 04:01:19 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

I need to know what I need to do to get some useful information to debug this and post a bug.
Thanks in advance!

Strange... I use iceweasel for my regular browser, so after reading this I installed epiphany-browser in this normal Squeeze/stable box.

I logged in and went to monster.com with no problem.

Since you mentioned a plug-in issue, I'm assuming the page was complaining about the lack of flash in the browser. I did not install the flashplayer non free 1:2.8.2, but instead use a third-party *.deb that downloads and installs the Adobe's Flash 10.

I'll dance a dance of joy when it is finally announced that Flash has died its long-overdue death. Smile
