I came across an unusual behaviour in Chrome (50.0.2661.89), running on a Galaxy S7 (SM-G930F)/Android 6.0.1 . The behaviour seems to be repeatable, causing my device to restart every time I scroll through a particular page.
- Start from a standard boot, no other apps run since startup.
- Open Chrome.
- Navigate to http://www.fieryflavors.com/spicy-food-hiccups/
- Swipe down the page (haven't managed to pin down a specific point of trouble yet).
- Device restarts.
The page in question doesn't seem to have anything tremendously nefarious happening in its source code (still poking it a bit, will update if anything turns up). I haven't come across this particular issue with Chrome on Android in the past.
I'm not sure that it's an 'official' Chromium bug yet, but it certainly looks like I'm not alone:
The problem appears to be specific to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge and is likely triggered by video embedded within adverts (the issue is intermittent, disappearing when new ads rotate into each problematic page). As such it's perhaps less likely that the issue lies within Android, and more that it's a Samsung problem or a very specific incompatibility between Android/Chrome/Samsung hardware.
