            Bug ID: 270733
           Summary: MacBook Air website consistently crashes WebKitGTK
           Product: WebKit
           Version: WebKit Nightly Build
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKitGTK
          Assignee: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

# Description

I went to Apple.com to browse for a new MacBook Air to test Asahi Linux on. Ironically, WebKit crashes when I load this webpage: https://www.apple.com/macbook-air/

# More information

I initially loaded this up in GNOME Web 45.2 (WebKitGTK 2.42.5), and it immediately crashed. Every time the webpage loaded, it would render the page perfectly fine for the first frame, become unresponsive, then crash. This was 100% reproduceable. I then tried opening it up in the Nightly version. It actually worked flawlessly on first try, no crashing. However, when I deleted the appdata folder (~/.var/app/org.gnome.Epiphany.Devel) and copied my files from the stable version of Epiphany (~/.var/app/org.gnome.Epiphany) into that folder, it had the same crashing problem. Then, I completely nuked the appdata folder, force quit all my Epiphany processes, and tested on a fresh appdata, and it exhibited the same behavior. I believe the page working the one time was a fluke related to some combination of cache or cookies left over from a past browser session... :-/

# Steps to reproduce

1. Go to https://www.apple.com/macbook-air/ on the stable and nightly versions of GNOME Web

# Debugging information:

GNOME Web 45.2 (stable):

WebKitGTK 2.42.5
GStreamer 1.22.10

GNOME Web 46.rc-11-gdaf5125aa+ (nightly)

WebKitGTK 2.43.4
GStreamer 1.22.10
