Nice to meet you.

I am Japanese.
I am questioning from Japan.

I have shifted the question from the following sites.


My environment:

CPU : a double CPU of PowerPC G4 1.25GHz.
OS : MacOSX 10.5.8 .
browser : the TenFourFox7450 Ver38.3.0 .
JavaScript : Off .


Google search keyword:
'The WIRE WORLD silver Starlight 6'

(I am retrieving the above-mentioned in Japanese. )

Listed following URL is listed by the above-mentioned.
I am clicking referring URL.

(It is the Import jobber company in Japan.)

http://naspecaudio.com/discon/wire-worl ... hdmicable/

Browser (TenFourFox7450 Ver38.3.0) is shut to the above-mentioned URL without permission while the access is started.
This phenomenon occurs regardless every time in the daytime at midnight on holiday and the weekday.

Question 2:

As a general rule

The cause to which a browser shuts without permission?

Is there a bug of a browser?

Or, is there the malicious program in the site ?

If time's being permitted comes, may I have advice?

    Hello, I can reproduce the crash at

    This seems to be related to a webfont that TenFourFox doesn't like.

    If you set gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled to false in about:config, does the website load ok?

    Dear Chris (chtrusch),

    Hello, nice to meet you.
    It's a pleasure to meet you.

    I inputted the command of the "About:config", and I have changed the item of "gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled" from "True" to "False" .

    I was able to display the website smoothly.
    It succeeded by your favor.

    Thank you so much.

    Nice talking to you.

    You are welcome. Nice to mee you too.

    So this seems to be issue 261 https://github.com/classilla/tenfourfox/issues/261
    Please note that turning off downloadable fonts is only a workaround for this problem. When the issue is fixed you should set gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled to true again.

    Cameron, should I try to identify the font or do we block at the URL level now?

    Dear Chris (chtrusch),


    Thank you for giving me new advice.

    I have read your message.

    By the way, I lack technical knowledge.
    Therefore, I understood the content only a little.

    The thing that I understood.

    "When I solved the problem of something, I should return the "true" a set value at the understood stage. "


    Will I have the method of knowing the point that the problem will solve in the future?

    Best regards.

    If the problem is really the downloadable font then the fix should be in one of the next updates. I will post a comment here when the problem is solved.

    This is actually slightly different: there really does appear to be a bad font blob here (not just one 10.4 doesn't like). It actually crashes in Harfbuzz, not the operating system.

    However, I'll solve it in the same fashion.
