(UPDATE) Qt 4.7: Crashes in QWebView::load on Symbian^3

  • Hi,

    I found some interesting behaviour and couldn't find the solution (or prove a bug). Please look at the following code:

    #include <QtGui>
    #include <QWebView>

    int main(int argc, char** argv)
    QApplication app(argc, argv);
    QWebView view;
    return app.exec();

    It compiles with Qt 4.6 and Qt 4.7.1, and runs successfully on Linux and Symbian^3 with Qt 4.6.4 installed. But on Symbian^3 (Nokia N8) with developer versions of Qt 4.7.0 and Qt 4.7.1 it crashes with KERN-EXEC 3 during loading the page.

    In that time, QML project with WebView component successfully loads all pages.

    Does anybody know is there a problem in the libraries, or something changed in the Qt SDK ?

    The complete project (cpp and pro files) could be found "there":

    Thanks in advance.


    UPDATE: i filled a bug report "Bug 53483": to WebKit team.

    UPDATE2: As you can read in the WebKit bug tracker the bug is in current versions of Qt (4.7.0 and 4.7.1). The latest (Qt 4.7.2) version fixes this bug.

  • Hi,

    Please file a bug report at, so that the issue can be investigated and tracked.
    This does sound like a regression.
