Yes, I do remember now.

Increasing the font sizes has no effect on the Drobe site, probably because of the CSS setting taking precedence. The general font setting on Drobe is a bit too smal for my monitor settings. That's why I increased the scaling in the past (and forgot about it later on...)

If I increase the scaling (e.g. from 100 to 120) on a single page on Drobe, all is OK, no crash. The problem arises when a non 100% setting becomes the default in Choices (I tried 110% which also gave a crash). I observed that when Netsurf has loaded all the items from the Drobe site, its window is redrawn/refreshed and that is the exact moment that the crash occurs. But with a scaling setting of 100% this redraw does not result in a crash.
