Thread: omniweb crash
View Single Post
i had a truly weird incident while ordering fios from at their website.
they kept executing some script which opened new tabs where salespersons were trying to chat me up for a bigger sale.
these tabs would open and switch me as often as every 15 seconds. it became difficult to type and fill out forms and complete my transaction.
ultimately omniweb became unresponsive and i force quit the app, losing all my work. crash reporter came up.
now here's the really weird part: i waited a few minutes and tried again. i knew the ropes and did things faster and sucessfully. but even after i closed the main verizon tab, these chat windows would still come up many times.
my only recourse was to close down omni web and restart it.
i consider a crash report based on how the internal javascript was handled.
i used the site earlier today on a vista box at a friends place running IE to order dsl for her. there i was only offered chat window once and when i declined it stopped pestering me.
therefore i surmise, perhaps incorrectly, that scripting is a fatal issue in this case.
