Description vanadiae 2021-07-26 11:32:10 PDT
When a page is initially (re)loaded or when some content is loading dynamically with Javascript (?), pressing some keys a few times makes the page become unresponsive and hence stops loading.

# Steps to reproduce

- open https://gitlab.gnome.org/Vanadiae/epiphany/-/jobs/1408741 or reload it
- type garbage on the keyboard either when the page hasn't shown anything yet, or once the CI logs black area has loaded (with the three small horizontal circles)

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=228279 is a related issue, though here it is only when triggered by typing stuff in the page, not only when loading any page (which happens too to me).

This is happening with webkit2gtk 2.33.1, using Epiphany. It didn't happen with webkit2gtk 2.32.

Hmm I can't reproduce this one myself, but I *could* reproduce it using the alternative reproducer that you posted in https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/-/issues/1549#note_1212166.
