Scrolling while Twitter embeds load seems to be crashing Firefox mobile

BurtletoyBurtletoy Registered User regular
Not sure if this is just a me thing, or if perhaps its related to the new advertising formatting stuff, so I figured I'd post just in case.

When I'm loading a thread and scroll quickly up or down past a twitter embed that is loading, the forums crash my browser and take me to my mobile home screen.

On android using Firefox 85.1.3 (Build #2015792283) on a Samsung galaxy note 10 lite

For example, I cannot load into this thread without it crashing, two twitter embeds in the most recent 3 posts, and scrolling while it loads closes my browser

Edit: as far as I can tell, the issue started yesterday

    Doesn't reproduce for me with android firefox 85.1.3 on a samsung galaxy S8. I haven't seen any actual ads show up on the forums yet, though.

    Yeah we haven't made any of those changes yet so it shouldn't be that. I can't reproduce this I'm afraid, I don't have the right gear.

    i don't see this using firefox on an iphone, fwiw

    Allegedly a voice of reason.

    I don't think it's happened again since I restarted my phone so I think it was just a me issue

    Nevermind, it's still going. Blah

    I'm afraid this is unlikely to be anything on our end, unless someone else reports the same thing
