I put the code in footer.php as a troubleshooting measure, before I used a third party plugin called headers and footers. I just placed it in the footers section using your above suggestion with the same results.
Before I edited the core file footer.php iBlogPro did not crash.

As I mentioned above, we do not recommend editing the core files nor we do provide support when users have. You mention yourself that before editing the core files, iBlogPro didn't crash.
When you say you edited the footer.php file, I assume you're referring to the footer.php file in PageLines Framework ?

Upon suggestion from a vendor's support team, they wanted me to try to add it via the footer.php. I did to appease them, the browser crashes.
Using your recommendation (PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code >) I added it to the footer section. Browser crashes.
I also noticed that the iBlog theme isn't displaying correctly on IE8. I used a PC at work (WIn7 IE8), my brother's PC (XP x64 IE8) and one of the affiliate houses used Win7 IE9 in IE8 compatibility mode. I see none of these issues on Firefox or Chrome. However, I see a LOT of visitors using IE so I can't ignore the issue.

IBlog uses css3, a majority of which isn't supported by IE8 unfortunately, things like border-radius, gradients etc, so it will look different to the standard layout. The gradients might default to a block color, the rounded corners will be square etc.
There's a thread which will explain the css3/ie debate in more depth here
I've pasted your script in to the standard framework and yes, it does break the site layout. You'll need to talk to the script author to see if they can offer an edit or a workaround to get it to work as intended.
