      in both cases i see that libxml2 is called then zlib,
returning a crash. Downgrading zlib and libxml2 to the last 
stable slackware release the problem disappears (libxml2 2.7.6
and zlib 1.2.3).
  Bug Fixes: libxml violates the zlib interface and crashes (Mark Adler)


      So is there any known or new problem of libxml2 2.7.7 with zlib 
1.2.5? or should i try to build zlib with debug and report back?

  So 2.7.7 should avoid the bug precisely, but for any zlib more recent
than 1.2.4 (IIRC) 2.7.7 should work, not crash. Are you sure it's not
a problem with an embedded version of libxml2 in your browser ?
