I did navigate to www.lonelyplanet.com with stock browser. browser did freeze, phone did freeze It was not possible to turn off the phone for minutes.

After 10 ? minutes the phone came back to life with red LED burning, but it was not possible to unlock it or to pick a phone call.

Volume up and power button did finally reboot the phone and it is working now again.

I've told you 3 trillion times, not to exaggerate. ...lol, @ killer URL's

It's very graphic intensive, even my laptop fan started revving up loading that URL, so I'm not surprised XperiaX or any other phone is struggling/freaking out.

@rainemak So what are you going to do about it? There are many sites that cause Sailfish phones to crash, and it's been that way for a LONG time. You expect this to be soved by moving to Gecko 45 in the next update? It better be, because this is highly embarrasing for you and not exactly good PR for Sailfish. Maybe focus more on getting the native apps to work than on Android integration? The browser is the one app that absolutely needs to work.

I cannot guarantee that all issues / crashes would be fixed with the Gecko 45 but good number of duplicates that I spotted from tjc will be fixed.

@rainemak Well ok, here's hoping for the best... Imagine the huge scandal it would be for Apple if all of the iphones experienced system crashes just by visiting a slew of common, harmless websites. Jolla faces less scrutiny because of its significantly smaller user base, but in theory if not in practice the problem is just as grave. In one way it's even more grave, because with a comparingly limited amount of apps for specific purposes, the browser needs to work to pull the heavier load of doing more things in browser. And that's how I prefer it, by the way - I don't want to have an app for every different newspaper that I read, for example; I want to read all of them by visiting their websites in the browser. But for that, I can't have the phone shutting down when I try to visit one...
