Bug Description

I compiled Midori 0.5.9 according to the instructions in HACKING, and have been using it successfully for many days on my Debian testing system {with the exception of the first click on the URL window erasing the URL within}.

Today I happened upon the website <>, which caused Midori to hang. Eventually, a popup window occurred asking me if I wanted to terminate the application. This was completely repeatable.

I notice there was an updated version of Midori (0.5.10), so I compiled that one as well, but the results were the same.

Note that this behavior does not occur in Chromium Version 41.0.2272.118 Built on 8.0, running on Debian 8.0 (64-bit), nor on Iceweasel {Firefox} 31.6.0 , nor on QupZilla 1.6.6 Webkit version 537.21

Can you if this happends with midori --plain (just using bare webkitgtk)?
This site seems to hang here too (with --plain) but it would be nice if you could also confirm that on your machine.

Indeed, it hangs with midori --plain as well.

I should have also pointed out that the cpu usage spikes like crazy when midori hangs on that website.

When using midori --plain, I got the following:
** Message: console message: [native code] @0: DEPRECATED - Inline dialog constructor has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Use inline dialog 2 instead.

** Message: console message: @21: JQMIGRATE: Logging is active


Let me know if there are any other tests I can do.
