I had a user point out that his Firefox or Chromium Browser would crash when 2 (or more) tabs were open on Linaro 4.4.23.
I suggested that he add a 1GB swap file using the instructions here: https://support.rackspace.com/how-to/create-a-linux-swap-file/ This apparently solved the problem (I haven’t tested it myself).
Another way to add a 1GB swap file is to install the Debian package “dphys-swapfile” which contains some useful scripts for creating and auto-“mounting” the file-based swap at boot. Just edit /etc/dphys-swapfile to taste and off you go.
