crash in epiphany causes crash in download

Bug Description

Binary package hint: epiphany-browser

I'm getting various crashes in epiphany, but this bug isn't about epiphany crashing.

I was downloading a 148MB file from the web, with epiphany.

When the download was almost finished, epiphany crashed because of some site, and so I lost the file I was downloading and I had to download it again.

Solutions: either:

1. make the download window a separate application, so that a crash in epiphany doesn't imply the crash in the download.

2. make the downloader capable of resuming the crashed download.

If you are using Ubuntu with the Gnome desktop environment - launch nautilus and navigate to your /var/crash directory and double click on the crash report you wish to submit.

I'm closing this bug report since the process outlined above will automatically open a new bug report which can then dealt with more efficiently. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

It surprises me that the bug is being closed because it doesn't carry the crash information.

As I was explaining above, the bug I submitted isn't about epiphany crashing, but about the fact that epiphany crash carries the downloader crash.

No crash information is relevant for this bug. Independently of the causes of the crash, the dowloader dies.

Reopening the bug.
