Konqueror crash using webkit


I sometimes use webkit in Konqueror to view certain sites, but lately I haven’t been able to since Konqueror crash everytime I activate webkit. I searched for this issue on the web and found among others this: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=241702

I downgraded Flash to 10.0.45xxx and it seems like Konqueror runs fine with webkit now. However I now got this message browsing Hattrick.org:

icedteanp plugin error: Failed to run /etc/alternatives/…/…/bin/java. For more detail rerun “firefox -g” in a terminal window.
This error only occur when using webkit, not with KHTML.

Anyone who know what this means?

I followed this thread: Java Plugin for firefox I Installed Java and removed javajdk and everything seems fine.

Having crashed Konqueror several times lately I notice that I am unable to restart the crashed application within the KCrash dialogue. Is this a “normal” flaw?

It’s https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=241702 for which there are many duplicate bug reports.

It only happens on Javascript heavy sites.

Hei John,

I suppose it is in conjunction with flash then, the downgrade of the flash player as well as using the Sun Java packages instead of the Java_openjdk packages seems to work fine.


Not as I understand. I have no problem using flash in Konqueror - the problems affect, for me at least, only a very small number of sites which make very heavy use of Javascript (which is nothing to do with Sun Java).


Do you know what cause good or bad java-script performance, I thought it was related to Java runtime env. But I haven’t got a clue really.


Javascript and Java are two totally different things - Java is irrelevant to this problem.
