I am running GuixSD on a 2008 model Dell Inspiron with I believe to be an Intel T5300 core 2 CPU. I have only just started using GuixSD for less than a year now, and still on the learning curve. So, do you think the tab crash I see with Icecat could be related to the hardware on my PC?

I have seen similar behaviour on a Thinkpad T60 with an x86_64 CPU
(upgraded from the i686 CPU that it came with). Icecat tabs crash and
it can be avoided only by disabling all extensions.

I don’t know what the cause is.

This is weird. I have not experienced it, and I just tried to load the website, which does not pose any problem.

I don’t see this on other x86_64 machines; among those computers that I
have access to, only the T60 is affected, which is why I thought it
might simply be a hardware problem.

Could it be related to memory consumption and, for instance, the number
of open tabs?

No, this happens with just one tab.  I found that I couldn’t get it to
crash with a simply static website like, but it
would crash somewhat reliably with sites that embed media.

There’s a bug report about crashes on i686:

FWIW this is the same T60, just before the upgrade to an x86_64 CPU.
Nothing else on that laptop has been changed since that bug report.
