The default SFOS browser has always been less stable than Firefox on Android for me, but problems were occasional. But since update to 4.5, the crashes have been so frequent, usage is extremely frustrating. This doesn’t seem to be related to missing codecs, that were fixed in the latest pointrelease, it has been crashing both before and after.
Even after I closed most tabs, cleared cache, turned off Android compatibility layer to make sure it is not the lack of memory. I can easily crash it with more than 1.5GB of free RAM on my 10 III. Only thing I haven’t tried yet is clearing cookies, but I don’t want to relog in to all websites. But I guess I could try that.
It happens with Twitter too, but the highest reproducibility rate I have with YouTube, so let’s focus on that.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Play YouTube video
- When the video comes to the end, there is 70% chance it will crash for me
- Double tap to skip, or sometimes even using the bar at the bottom causes crashes too
If I get an ad before video, it will crash at the end of the ad, and after I launch the browser again I will get another add, causing another crash…
