Other iOS users have also reported that long press (generally used for creating options for the URL) leads to the crash. There does not seem to be a permanent solution but there are temporary fixes. Here they are:

#1 According to those affected by the bug, JavaScript disabling will stem any glitch within the Safari application. This does not solve problems within remaining applications such as mail, notes and messages.

How do we disable the JavaScript? You need to simply navigate to Settings>Safari?Advanced then hit the green toggle next to JS on the menu.

#2 Another method to eradicate the bug is a little more complicated but works just as well. Users can connect iPhone or iPad to a PC or Mac and launch the application for iTunes.

Airplane Mode can be enabled on the device and then app needs to be uninstalled. The next step if to navigate Settings.Safari and make the change to another research engine(namely Bing). Then the Search Engine Suggestions, Safari Suggestions have to be disabled along with Quick Website Search, Block Pop Ups and Fake Website Warnings.

Another important step following this is to disable the installed content blockers from Safari’s menu and move to Safari.Advanced and disable Javascript if it has not been done already before.

Switching off the Airplane mode and leaving the device connected to the computer, means turning off your iPhone or iPad. Then you need to turn it back on.

The next thing you need to do is go into iTunes and install the application for on the device and tap Sync in iTunes to ensure installation proceeds.

Though Airplane Mode is enabled, you need to run the app, and do not grant app access to GPS or notifications then when it has loaded, double tapping the Home Button and kill from the multi-tasking screen.

Next, you need to uninstall the app and turn the Airplane Mode off and re-eanble that which is disabled in the Safari settings before.

iOS 9.3 employs a group of features including updates to different functions like News and Health. The Safari glitch comes after the servicer side issue hit iPhone, iPad and OS X users during the earlier point in the year.

Widespread bug has caused the crashing of the Apple Safari web browser to crash each time the clicking of the address bar takes place.  Apple’s Safari Suggestions is also a big problem which is a feature that offers up automatically completed uniform resource locators as the URL bar is typed in. Autocompletion comes from Apple’s server so those who haven’t updated the browser or device recently could still have the same problem.
