Firedragon tabs keep crashing on YouTube & WhatsApp Web

Hi I've been having issues with Firedragon browser crashing on YouTube and Whats App. I noticed this first when I was using WhatsApp Web, the browser would display a message stating there's no memory, but checking my resources Ill be having about 6GB RAM.

The site(s) will work for less than a minute and it crashes. reloading the tab doesn't help.

May you please fix this. If I use another browser I don't experience this. I use Firefox and it works without any problems.

Yes that is known, plz upgrade Firedragon to version 101 and it should help.


thanks, let me upgrade

Also check if you have something in here

ls -rs date /var/lib/systemd/coredump/

In many cases it dumps a core and this will take space. My guess is you got dumps from Isolated Web sub-process.
As an added bonus if you know how to read core dumps you could also check what's causing this. I don't know how yet to read those but I darn would love to.

i found this:

Yup, exactly what I thought. :slight_smile:

If you don't want to read/analyze them, you can delete them.

The issue with Youtube should be solved as of 101 as pointed out already.
The Whatsapp one however is still a miracle to me, I'm strongly assuming its caused by the restricting, privacy enhancing defaults which are patched in at build time rather than an issue with the build since it happened since a long time.

Tbh, I don't really care enough about Whatsapp to compromise other tweaks in favour of having it working :slight_smile: There are other ways, like whatsapp-nativefier which can provide a working desktop integration.
