    Stock browser crashes and the facebook "like" button

    This came up in one of the "my browser is always crashing" threads but I thought it was worthy of having one devoted to it.

    The browser on my tf101 started crashing frequently about a week or two ago. I *think* I've narrowed it down to the facebook "like" button causing the crashses. This is my post from the other thread.

    OK... I have a new theory. This doesn't really constitute evidence, but it seems like facebook widgets encourage the browser to crash. All the pages with crashing problems have facebook on them (but who doesn't these days... well, wikipedia, but it doesn't crash). I set up two silly pages, one with just a simple facebook widget on it and one without. The one with facebook will consistently crash on the second or third refresh. The simple page is fine. I have no idea what this could be, perhaps javascript, and image maybe, who knows. Here are some URLs to try: (facebook widget) (basically a blank page)

    There was a note on the facebook page about a recent update to their API . They are migrating sites over or something. Maybe there is some sort of javascript or image the android browser doesn't like. This isn't definitive evidence, but I'm curious to see what other people think.

    I'm going to try blocking facebook on my router and see what happens.

    This only seems to happen when "always retrieve desktop site" is active.

    Moshi has opened a bug with google for investigation. It's issue 37545.

    I'm curious to see how many other people can reproduce the problem.
