And yet the webloc crashing bug is still present after installing Safari 12.0.2 on macOS Sierra. One wonders what kind of regression testing or basic QA actually happens at Apple these days when they release software that is supposed to work in multiple versions of macOS. This is a pretty obvious and dramatic bug.

Reproduction steps:
1) Click on a webloc file in Finder - crash!

Workaround: Remove Safari 12.0.2 (the bug occurs all previous versions of Safari 12 too). Restore Safari 11.1.2. Do the same test as above. It just works. Not really an edge case, unless Apple stopped supporting webloc files and I didn’t get the memo. Even so, it shouldn’t crash Finder. Good grief!!!

I don’t see this; clicking and double-clicking on webloc files works just fine for me under Mojave and Safari 12.0.1.

The OP appears to be referring to a specific problem with Sierra and Safari 12.0.2.
