@Giovanni What feedback is needed - happy to help test.
if a developer is having a look at the issue but is unable to replicate then is requested to the issuer to check again and/or improve the description (or as in your case add a screencast).

Several bug reports have been marked as duplicates and merged with this one, but i feel it's description doesnt represent the full extent of this bug.
In my case crash happens whenever an entry is changed in an attachment widget with a web view document viever. Crash also happens when you switch to another feature in attribute table form view. (see attached image)
I have found this bug in 3.4. LTR on Mint 19, Windows 7 and Windows 10 environments. It totally ruins our organisation's usage scenario for QGIS and has caused us great pain. It is a regression from an important feature that used to work perfectly in 2.18.
It would be nice if we could at least get some update here on what is causing the issue and what are the prospects of resolving it.
