Hi Berto,

It seems to be the same problem.

It happens less often.

With dwb 20130503hg-2 (libwebkitgtk-3.0-0), it seems there is no crash
anymore, but on some sites as http://www.letelegramme.com/, I get:

(dwb:2283): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_label_set_markup: assertion `GTK_IS_LABEL (label)' failed

and the program stops.

BTW, with dwb, I get a lot of messages as:

** (dwb:2283): WARNING **: webkit_dom_node_has_attributes: this functionality has been removed from WebKit, this function does nothing.

on any site.

With midori 0.4.3+dfsg-0.1 (libwebkitgtk-1.0-0), with the same site,
I get:

Segmentation fault

and I also got it removing a tab from some other site.
