What WebKitGTK+ version are you using? Can you please share the websites
links (if they're not private) that trigger these issues? Other devs will
probably be interested in them.

If you use at least WebKitGTK+ 2.16 (you should), then please look at
Carlos' blog post -

section about Debugging tools.
