Dear Debian Team,
I’ve found increasing heavier problems using web browser. In earlier stage the “system” freeze (no ctrl-alt-function-key response) when watching long video online (say at least 30 min, say on you tube.com), now (as consequence of system update??) cannot use any browser: tried chromium firefox(esr,stable,nightly) epiphany-browser qutebrowser and the result are system freeze or shutdown (watching video).
I’ve described the problem in very generic terms, I’ve filled ticket on mozilla for earlier problem but cannot profile browser since gui is very unresponsive when not freezed. Can you help? Waiting for your welcome advices.
Thank you for your attention and best regards.

Basic info:
Computer Acer Aspire V5 (121)
uname -v: #1 SMP Debian 4.16.5-1

Ko no ma ka na

Not knowing the details of you system I would suggest to back down to a 4.15-?? kernel.  I had the same problem watching Netflix on the official chrome browser running the 4.16.0-1 amd64 kernel.  I even downgraded chrome but the fix was going back to kernel 4.15.17-1.  If you have other kernels installed just reboot and select another kernel from the grub menu to see if that is the fix for you.  If you can't install the 4.15.17-1 kernel from your current sources try http://snapshot.debian.org/ in the last week of April.
