I just updated TenFourFox to parity release 15 and it crashes repeatedly on websites such as 'reverb.com' and 'gumtree'.
Today it crashed immediately before it had even opened a window but I opened it again and I'm using it now to submit this message.

I've never experienced this with previous versions - will it be fixed in a future release?

Thanks

    Please read https://github.com/classilla/tenfourfox/wiki/AAATheFAQ#i-tried-to-r... first. Do any of those things fix your problem?

    Thanks Cameron, I read the article you suggested.

    After the immediate crash today I went on to use it successfully to access hotmail, after submitting this message and I'm using it now no problems so maybe it was just a glitch after it repeatedly crashed yesterday on 'reverb.com' and gumtree. I haven't tried these sites again but it could be just these websites cause it to happen? I tried to open reverb.com in safari and got a window saying reverb does not support such an old version of Safari so maybe it doesn't like TenFourFox either?
    Hopefully it won't happen on any further websites for me.

    Many thanks

    https://reverb.com/ and https://www.gumtree.com/ both load fine in TFF FPR 15 on my G4 1.67 GHz PowerBook. Did some casual browsing on these sites and wasn't able to crash the browser. These also load fine in Leopard Webkit.

    However, Gumtree is a classic waster of resources. The site displays an unholy amount of localized ads from a myriad of third-party servers, lots of 'sponsored links', and loads all sorts of third-party analyzing tools. The site keeps rotating these and (for me) never stopped loading on some pages. One of these external ads may well have crashed your browser. I recommend (at least) using TFF's built-in basic adblock, it may remedy at least some of your crash situations.

    Thanks Chris for testing on your system. I also have a G4 1.67Ghz Powerbook so essentially they should work for me as well so it looks like it was something specific to my computer.

    TFF hasn't crashed again but i haven't been back to either of those sites and I doubt I'll need to go back to Gumtree because I agree -it's highly annoying the number of ads it tries to load up.

    So all good for now - many thanks :)

    TTF Feature Parity Release 14 crashes everytime I go to Ebay. Any suggestions? I have removed all add-ons; the problem continues.

    The current version is FPR16, so make sure you've updated to that first. However, I use eBay on my G5 frequently without issues. If upgrading to FPR16 doesn't fix the issue, please open a new ticket (that way we're not spamming the previous commenters).
