I'm on an up-to-date Arch Linux x86 installation and I noticed Midori crashes on loading . I used the PKGBUILD from here
and added '-d all' to the configure command to compile with debug symbols.

When I click on the URL I can see the browser connecting to the webserver and loading the page title, but after that it crashes. All messages and the backtrace are at the bottom of the report.

Here is some information on the packages that are installed on my system:

Environment information

X-server: 1.12.3

Thanks for providing the log, but unfortunately it doesn't say anything.
If it's not a problem, could you report it to upstream?
Comment by Bartłomiej Piotrowski (Barthalion) - Saturday, 11 August 2012, 10:08 GMT
Btw., bug occurs on x86_64 too.
Comment by Benjamin van der Burgh (Gringo) - Saturday, 11 August 2012, 10:13 GMT
I was unsure if I had to report the bug to the Arch Linux or Midori development team, so I did both.
The upstream report from a few days ago is here:

It seems it's not really a priority though, as the report hasn't been touched. It's not that the bug really bothers me, but Midori just crashes sometime at random moments. It's too bad, because I like the browser, but I'm pretty much forced to use something else if I want to be safe from crashes :( This is one of the crashes that I could reproduce.

Thanks for looking into it!

It's somehow related to webkit available in our repositories -- Luakit throws segfault, while Firefox, Opera and Chromium work.

Added Ioni, as he might have some insights about webkit.

I see the midori bug report has a new comment from 2012-08-04:
"no longer affects: midori (Arch Linux)"

Assuming the issue is fixed.
