This occurs with 32-bit builds from OSGeo4W; also happens when I compile myself, using OSGeo4W configuration.
The standalone QBrowser also crashes.

Win 64-bit builds don't appear to be affected.

running on Windows 8.1 64-bit system and Windows 7 64-bit.

This is after rev. fe6456f that fixed a problem introduced in rev. 70bff3f.
versions affected: 2.13.0-7 rev. commit:f996c4 and 2.13.0-8 rev. d3ee16f; may be others -- not tested.

Note that 2.13.0-3 rev. 3d93237 (before 70bff3f) does not crash.

For some reason (something that flashed by, I think) I had an idea that one or another of the web service providers may be related to this problem, so I removed the various web service provider .dll files and used just the file and database providers. Now QGIS/QBrowser don't crash.

Partial revert of 70bff3f

Commit was causing crashes in browser. Refs #13738

406db65 is also related. I suspect there are more QString references passed to threads (via signals?) and dereferenced after the referenced QString object is already gone. Is there a big gain by passing QString references instead of QStrings? They are referencing the same internal string anyway.

Ok, I'll partially revert that commit. I was hoping it would help reduce some of qgis' memory usage, as valgrind is showing that qstrings are one of the heaviest memory usage we have.
