            Bug ID: 183406
           Summary: Some Amazon ads cause WebKit to hang
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Local Build
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Animations
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

Some Amazon ads cause WebKit to hang with 99% cpu usage - as shown by "top" command for WebKitProces.

Fedora Linux:
RedHat Linux Bugzilla 1551610 - epiphany (WebKit) hangs with 99% cpu for certain web pages

Bug is very reproducible.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Turn off ad blocking in epiphany browser
2) Go to URL https://www.amazon.com/Dragons-Egg-Dragon-Eggs-Book-ebook/dp/B01JOL7BKC/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1520258748&sr=1-1&keywords=dragon%27s+egg+Sorensen

This URL is not unique - it is the ads which are causing the hang - viewing other Kindle books (and probably other items) will also cause a hang (sometimes).  Not all ads may cause a hang.
