Ok, and now for some more constructive feedback... I can see this issue
as well on i586 and intel GMA 950.
The page  loads fine (although it's complex like hell a takes it a
relatively long time to load) on midori (webkitgtk based) but trying the
same link in epiphany (with xulrunner backend) almost instantly freezes
the desktop with only cursor moving (with the animation stopped) and
music from rhythmbox via pulseaudio still playing. Unfortunately, right
now I also don't have the means to ssh to the laptop so I had to use
So I suggest you reassign the bug to xulrunner and let the devs sort out
what exactly is causing this (because even though it happens with XR and
not with WK it might be hitting a bug elsewhere)...
I've added my test results to the bug report .
