You are going to have the same issue. They depend WebKit and JavaScript is crashing them. It has been fixed in Debian but not yet in Ubuntu.

And historically I had the same issues with midori, so haven't check it lately . . . didn't see "luakit" in the synaptic search for browsers eligible for my system . . . but, might be worth playing with???

Over on the PM 3,1 in 12.04 that I've upgraded RAM to its max 2GB, FB will be painfully slow to load stuff, but, so far, no crashes.

But, when you say, "run the build command" . . . is this a general suggestion of something to do on the computer to fill its time . . . or specific to keeping my olde PM 3,1 running 12.04, but something that needs to be "built" . . . so that the upgrade for XFCE could then be installed ???
