Crashes on High-Sierra (10.13.6 latest)

Postby ecodeluz » Wed Sep 11, 2019 11:49 am

Hi there,

Since a few weeks, vienna crashes after trying to open certain URLs.

Example URL: https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/08 ... azon-fires

Vienna version is: 3.5.4 :8b11d92d: (7074)

Crash log attached.

Cheers,

Stefan

It does the same thing in Mac OS 10.14.6 (Mojave), so updating can hardly be a solution.

I suppose you must open the page in Safari or whatever browser you use.

I have the impression that the crashes I see depend on whether the article contains an enclosed file or not.
See attached screenshot.

Seems to be a bug in Webkit/Javascript : if you disable Javascript in Vienna's internal browser (see Advanced Preferences), it does not crash.
I contribute to Vienna RSS as a developer.
Please, don't forget those tips for writing a good bug report

Thank you barijaona, turning off Javascript is the solution.
Cheers
