There is a new behaviour since the last update: I read twitter and reddit mobile pages via the SailfishOS browser. After the update it crashed in minutes when just scrolling both sites (like the normal "next post" scrolling). I have a (for me) standard set of open applications, JollaC upgraded.

I am also experiencing this, Jolla 1 and Sailfish I don't just get it with Twitter but some other pages as well. It'll open twitter (I click a link from Tweetian) and show the content but when I try to view or move the page then it'll minimise the browser.

I have it crash sometimes, flicker other times, and being unable to properly route URL requests from bookmarks other times. Integration between android amd sailfish doesnt seem as robust. Credit card entry fields seem to sometimes delete entities after every 4 digits so it actually wont allow you to enter the whole credit string (tried in western union mobile app - under firefox android browser it works).

Hello, I have similar problems with native Jolla browser after recent update. Browser crashes on some sites after 15-20 seconds. It doesn't depend if this site just opened or started to browse(at least one link is clicked). There is no any problem with this site, so wrote this text from browser.

Ahh, also get troubles with some Android apps- they crash right after launch and registry rebuilt won't help.

I also experienced this, but have not been able to recreate the crash again.Will keep on trying.

I'm also experiencing this, found that it only happens on heavy pages and/or if several (more than 10) tabs are open simultaneously. For me it helps to close tabs, other apps and internet hotspot, but on really heavy pages the problem persists.

Oh, for me it is a single tab!
