        Just for your information – a few

        tags and a css attribute can crash your browsers.

        Thanks for the heads-up, so within the no-script settings, [advanced tab] in Firefox 62:
        ‘Sanitize cross-site suspicious requests’ should prevent this from happening?
        Or does this happen irrespective of that particular setting, if at all in FF?

        Edit:

        There is little that Internet users can do to avoid this issue. CSS instructions are executed on load and may be added to any webpage; this is different from JavaScript which users may block from execution by using programs such as uBlock Origin, uMatrix, or NoScript

        If users are knowledgeable about how to use the right tool to delete the browser cache for most platforms, it could help a user. Maybe it is possible to navigate iOS file system using a external connection to clean Safari’s cache.
