Surfing SAFE on Fedora causes Firefox to crash

Launcher version: [0.4.0]
Demo app version: [0.2.0]
Browser version: [Firefox 42.0 / Google Chrome 50.0.2 / Safari 9.0.3]
Operating System: Fedora 21

Okay so I hop on Linux, set up the SAFE Launcher and demo app and decide to surf some SAFE sites right. I make sure the pac is turned on and what not and off I go. I try loading a safe site and my whole browser freezes up and crashes, repeatedly. Every time I reopen firefox and try to refresh the safe site it crashes. I don’t know if it’s the site of if you guys did an upgrade to the pac file I don’t know about but whatever it is it seems to make Firefox have kittens.

Can you try to use other browsers, not that that solves anything related to FF, but it might give a better picture what works and doesn’t.

I don’t even think I have another browser installed on here. I’ve never used another one on linux.

Also there’s the complication of configuring another browser to use SAFE. How would I do it even if I could find one?

Doesn’t chrome install on linux? I’ve not tried so its a question

Yes I have chrome and firefox (on Debian).

Can you try the updated version of the Demo App?
