    Hi,

    I apologize in advance if a similar issue has been observed before. I'm curious as to why I'm unable to load the following url in safari running on an ipod touch 2g with firmware 3.1.2 (I've tried repeated times, even after rebooting the device)

    I've had random safari crashes before but never with such consistency on the same webpage. Does anybody else experience the same crashing? I'm just curious as to what html content could be causing the app to flake out.

    Just crashed my 3GS safari also.
    It's the website causing it.

    I can believe it, since it's AOL.

    Downloaded webpage with no problem...

    Tried it 3 times with my 32gb 3GS running 3.1.2 and jailbroken.

    One final attempt

    Okay, so I just tried disabling javascript and the page successfully loaded. I turned Javascript back on and it successfully loaded. However loading the page from a reboot with javascript enabled causes a crash. Looks like the page is having a little javascript trouble with serving up alternative content for the flash ads.

    From debug console (when page is able to load)

    Code:
    JavaScript Error on Line 1
    
    Unsafe Javascript attempt to access frame with
    URL http://ads.tw.adsonar.com/adserving/getAds...

    Oh what fun!
