I cannot reproduce your crash, opening those url's in my setup
(suckbuntu) works fine. I'm using current head and tried to match your
browser versions without any real problem.

Only difference to vanilla config.h is my font configuration:

static const char *fonts[] = { "Inconsolata:size=16" };
static const char dmenufont[] = "Inconsolata:size=16";

Can you please provide the exact git hash and the font configuration
of config.h as well?

Well, does the i3 font setup matches your config.h font setting of
dwm? Or are they different?
