Steps to reproduce


Repro Steps:

  1. From WinPhone, launch IE
  2. Navigate to
  3. Click a story with lots of comments (50 or more).
  4. Scroll through the comments, taking time to (try to) read them.
  5. Phone sends user back to home screen, IE tab shuts down.

Expected Results:

To be able to scroll through a web site without it crashing.

Actual Results:
