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.

When you say "Google", what do you mean? Are you talking about Chrome or

power button. To get it working again I have to pull the plug, then
reboot. This occurs on Ubuntu also and on Vinux 4. What's going on? Is
there a way to prevent this?
