I'm glad to hear that everything is ok. Unfortunatelly I'm not an
expert on lemote hardware nor this port of gNewSense so I probably
won't be that useful ;) The only thing I can say is a hint on how to
gain more informations on this problem, since I don't know any
lightweight web browser ("functional" web browsers are really bloated
these days). So:

- could you look at what is printed in $HOME/.xsession-errors while
the browser is crashing?
- could you provide core file generated by crashing process (i'm not
sure if gNewSense developers ask for it, but it may be helpful in
tracking the most tricky element)

As for core, it can be obtained this way:
1. start a terminal session
2. turn off limit for core files: ulimit -c 0
3. start epiphany from the shell launched inside this terminal session
4. crash the software ;)

core file should be created in the working directory. However I'm not
sure how useful it will be for developers here - I'm not an expert.

As for alternative web browser, people that use yeelong for daily
basis will probably be more helpful than myself.

Happy hacking!
