When the user scrolls quickly through particular pages without the content being fully loaded, ABB crashes. Upon restarting ABB, there is no option to send a crash report, which, after previous experience points towards a memory issue. Please see the JETSAM attached from the crashes.

iPhone 6 Plus
iOS 9.3.1
ABP Enabled
AA Enabled
English Easylist
All 'more options' disabled

How to reproduce

  1. Visit
  2. Before the page has fully loaded scroll quickly to the very bottom of page


  1. If the page has loaded with 'Load 3 more images' then select this and scroll quickly to the bottom of the page

Observed behaviour

ABB crashes.

Expected behaviour

ABB should not crash.

Sorry wrong resolution. Mixed up with 4166.
But anyway @scheer, i can't reproduce. Step 2. does not take me very far as the page is quite short initially and it reflows only when there are the comments. Then it's pretty much complete so nothing else is loading. Step 3. i don't see any "Load 3 more images" action. I'm not proficient with imgur, sorry :)

@pavelz the 'load 3 more images' occurs when the page has not yet had time to load fully and there are more images to display. Sometimes this happens when you scroll too fast, sometimes it bypasses this and just loads the images straight away. Try some other articles on that have a slightly larger page length (or image content). This, however, still occurs on the link given on the iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 9.3.1 for me.

As for step 2, loading fast or not, this still occurred for me in the given article. As soon as you select the link and the first image is loaded, 'flick' the screen up (to scroll down) and continue to do so until you reach the bottom of the page. Just so we are clear here - users would have this behaviour if they had already been to the post and wanted to see the last image again, the comments again etc. Users may also perform this behaviour if they simply wanted to read the comments without looking at the article.
