We had a similar problem in issue 3847. Because the steps to reproduce were different this time around, a new issue was created.

Previously, because there was no crash reporter presented upon restart of the app, it was thought to be a memory issue.

We were able to now narrow down the reproduction of the random crashing to a link. Please be aware that crashes still occurs randomly when visiting other news heavy sites or navigating through other Reddit links, but this particular repro is 100% with version 1.3.0 (864).

search for "Nuclear power is less safe than expected"
It's a sponsored redirection, so it does not have its own reddit link even
It creates a full screen frame which is not a main frame neither it has a referer, so Kitt core cannot determine its framing address. Will be passed through, not routed to Adblock extension.
