    RE: Elinks crashing with javascript enabled
    I registered with Bugzilla and submitted the bug. It was eventually solved. Here is the URL: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=798103 It was fixed with a change to the patch for js-1.8.5. An update will be available in the Fedora Update repo in the next day or so.

    RE: Elinks crashing with javascript enabled
    Thank you, GoinEasy9 for your reply. I compiled elinks a couple of different ways, one to make sure the js patch was applied. I untarred the tarball from the Fedora source file and patched with the js patch before conigure and make with no difference in behaviour, and I compiled the Fedora source rpm with "rpmbuild --rebuild" and no joy. I tried compiling the stable version -- 0.11.2 -- and it errored out with javascript errors. I will preuse the link pertaining to the bug and also the https://bugzilla.redhat.com/ site. I'll sign up for the latter and report back here if I find a solution. Thanks very much for the informative post.

    Elinks crashing with javascript enabled
    I using Fedora 16 64 bit and elinks crashes when I have javascript enabled. I have tried compiling both elinks and javascript (Spidermonkey, ECMA-script) with the same results. There are no upgrade packages for either. Has anyone else this problem or know what I can do? I use elinks a lot because I have a dial up internet connection. Graphical browsers are required for some things but I like to use elinks when I can because it is so much faster with dial up. I have posted this problem on two other forums with no helpful replies. Thanks in advance.
