libreJS v7 is now considered to be the current stable release and is a nearly total re-write; so this issue very likely refers to only to the previous version that was obsoleted my mozilla - all further development will be on libreJS v7 so this issue is marked as "wont-fix" for now unless it can be show to pertain also to libreJS v7

as this behavior was seen using libreJS v6, could someone try libreJS v7 on a firefox derivative >= v57 to see if the same issue still exists?

I think I have the same problem. I can make Iceweasel reliably crash (segmentation fault) when visiting https://freepo.st/ if LibreJS is enabled. I used a clean Iceweasel profile where the only add-on installed was LibreJS. Iceweasel 49.0. LibreJS 6.0.13 from mozilla.org.

After the last round of updates to Fedora (in my case, Freed-ora ;-) 23, that brought in Firefox 47, the browser started crashing very often.

After some investigation, I found out that, if I had LibreJS enabled and all other extensions disabled, it would always crash when I visited this page: http://www.cmpod.net/all-transcripts/history-open-source-free-software-text/

Disabling LibreJS, it doesn't crash any more, and having all other plugins enabled again (including NoScript), it still doesn't crash any more.

Please let me know whether you need any further information (and how to collect it, if it's not obvious; I'm no browser expert :-)

Thanks for LibreJS!
