Abrowser closes suddenly in untrusted sites.

It also breaks if an extension with specific blocking capabilities is installed, for example: uBlock, Disconnect...

I just want to second that I'm having this issue and note that it is on a 32-bit version and I am unsure whether anyone running 64-bit has confirmed this issue.

This is a critical issue as it has completely broken abrowser for many https sites. As noted by the original bug report abrowser just crashes.

I think it is better to report bugs of icecat not here but at savannah, where it is hosted, since this isn't only a package of trisquel. We can avoid some duplicate bugs this way.

Title:List of Abrowser & Icecat issues» Abrowser font rendering

I received the recent Trisquel updates notice and did the update. I wasn't able to upgrade from 7.0 to 8.0 for reasons I don't understand. Also, since the updates, font rendering in Abrowser deteriorates as I scroll down a page. Sometimes the rendering is unreadable but selection and copying into gedit renders the text well enough.

I have the same problem in Trisquel 8.

> This is just a list of [bugs] for Abrowser & Icecat.

Then why is the title "Abrowser font rendering"?

Version:7.0» 8.0

I have begun seeing this issue on a clean install of Flidas. Issue occurs on most text-heavy sites after scrolling down the page some. The issue comes and goes as you scroll up and down, seemingly at random.

Status:active» fixed

With the closer migration to GitLab, and the recent updates for abrowser the last remaining issues open:
#5772: about:rights has a bad format

I think is fair to mark this as closedfixed and start any new reports on GitLab.
This is part of a campaign to clean remaining issues at 9.0, before the migration is in place, hopefully most issues will be resolved, thank you for al the reports over several years.

Best regards.
