Update 18/4

And since yesterday it works fine. I suspect some advert or Guardian inserted message does this. Do others see this: consistently fails for several days then works OK?

Update 15/4

Top posting because the browser will not let me scroll the text box. back to segfaulting every time. Tried everything - can't stop it. Please fix this.

OP: First time using the browser seriously since update of Jolla C to 2.1. Multiple problems, but one I don't think I've seen mentioned.

This bookmarked link opens the site but sends it straight to the page of running programs, where the site is seen on the cover:

I suspect this may be login (I am logged in) or advert related, but does anyone else see it? Tapping the cover opens it and bounces it straight back to the cover again.

Most other proplems are sites that 'open' with a blank page. Sometimes reorienting the screen shows the site. Overall, I find the browser much less usable than before the update.

Update 14-2-17

(Changed title to describe my specific problem.) work Ever since posting this the Guardian site has always segfaulted. Yesterday I tried to do some diagnostics, which failed to reveal anything. I wondered whether the 'responsive' design and the mobile layout contributed to the problem. In the course of that I cleared cookies and the cache - which didn't help at the time.

This morning I loaded the Guardian site in landscape - and it didn't fail. Since then it's worked fine in portrait too - the problem has gone away. Whether that's anything to do with starting in landscape, or whether clearing cookies - and therefore signing out of the site - made a difference to what was served this morning, I don't know.

So if anyone has this problem - try landscape mode.

@grmoht I don't think so. It doesn't 'flicker a blank page' - it shows the full page for several seconds (looks like scripts are running which is why I suspect advertising) then minimizes. Always happens on that site and only that site so far. Reboot and open the browser and it loads the page automatically, and minimzes. To stop it I can hit 'X' to stop loading.

I get the crash too.

@giacomo-di-giacomo. It had not occurred to me that it was a crash; the cover was still there so I assumed it was still running. But yes, if I run the browser from the terminal with this site as automatically restored, it segfaults.

The cover stays there (dimmed) when a program crashes on SFOS.
