Strange problem with Google

It isn't a Jesse debian problem per se. A while back this would happen to me on my powerpc mac mini running jesse and not on my intel mac mini running the same thing. In my case, it had problems anyway but the freeze really set in when I hit slash. For unrelated reasons, I reinstalled on my powerpc machine and the problem was gone. I don't know if it was a lynx setting or what. Another thing I should  point out is that a freeze can also happen in some instances if you choose to have both links and form fields numbered. I've known this for quite a while but it doesn't happen on all machines or distributions of linux. It's better to only have links numbered. Sorry that I can't tell you exactly what your problem might be but I will say I'm not at all sure that it's related to the fact that you are running Jesse per se.


May the words of my mouth
and the meditation of my heart
be acceptable to You, Lord,
my rock and my Redeemer.
(Psalm 19:14 HCSB)
