    For about the past week or so, RCF will randomly crash my browser on both iPad and iPhone.

    I can only assume it must be an ad since it only happens about a third of the time.

    Also, (not as important), sometimes it loads 3 blank ads up top, and it loads them about 3 seconds apart, which can get annoying because when I go to click on a link, suddenly a second or third blank ad loads and pushes everything down, and I end up hitting the wrong link.

    The crashing is the bigger issue though.

    I only have an iPad so I run into this ALL the time as well. My only temporary solution was to turn off JavaScript in your settings for safari. It stops those three blank bars from loading. I click the wrong link literally every time I try to click something with it on.

    I think I've found the glitch. One of the ad networks was running a script that formed a loop. I've disabled that ad network. Try clearing your cache/cookies from RCF and give it a shot.

    Actually it may take an hour or so for this fix to work. I'll check in on everything tonight and see how it goes.

    Update:

    It seems to have worked in removing the double ad frame that was showing. I don't own apple products so I don't know if it stopped the crashing. You'll have to let me know if it did.

    It's doing it constantly right now and I cleared my history and cookies on my phone.
