Browser hangs when a new tab is killed while still loading

  • Vivaldi 1.0 on Kubuntu 12.04 with backports. When I click on a link or entry field in a page, a website sometimes also opens an additional nuisance (ad) tab. If I immediately kill that tab (before it finishes loading), Vivaldi hangs and I have to either close the original tab or close Vivaldi to get it working again. If I wait for the nuisance tab to finish loading, then everything works normally. I think this issue predates 1.0 - at least in Beta 3. I don't think this is a problem in Firefox - with the same web pages, so it is probably something to be fixed in Vivaldi.
