When I try an google certain web sites including "NFL" firefox freezes and I get the unresponsive script chrome:/wrc/content/common/scripts/bal.js:854". I uninstalled Google Chrome but still have the same problem.

hello monktonmerchant, this error is probably caused by the "Avast Online Security" extension that you have installed. try to keep it disabled for a while and see if the problem is still occurring...

Thanks to philipp: I disabled the avast addon (from) when I updated to avast 9.0.2008, and the unresponsive script has stopped freezing firefox during google searches.

PS, I added this addon in it's place, Trustwave SecureBrowsing: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/m86security-secure-browsing/eula/224305?src=search It's not too bad, and seems to be more thorough than the avast addon.

I also use the web of trust (WOT) addon.

My google searches use to freeze or lag, only in google, so i disabled avast in the extensions, and it's does not lag now!

Does this mean im not protected now in my Firefox? and is there a a fix from avast, etc?
