Firefox keeps freeing/hanging. First you will see the errors that pop up for me. Then the troubleshooting I have done to solve this problem.

Script Error: Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/imageBlock/imageBlock-3190704718._V1_.js:773

Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/digital/sitb/reader/v4/201411111537/en_US/sitb-library-js._V319867744_.js:34


Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/site-wide-js-1.2.6-beacon/site-wide-5809221203._V1_.js:184


For troubleshooting I have tried the following: disable addon's and restart in safe mode (did not help) disable theme and restart in safe mode (did not help) reset firefox (did not help) uninstalled Firefox & removed all traces of browser from my computer (yes even the registry was removed)


after doing the above I still had all my previous settings. I used IE to download a fresh copy and tired again. Still have all my settings, plugin's, tabs, and unremoved cookies and a little history

I am not tech savvy but the script errors made me think of Javascript. I went to about:config and searched for Java when javascript.enabled showed up I disabled and the problem has disappeared.

I know I need this javascript enabled. I cannot do much of anything at my site with is disabled.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this script hanging problem.

Thanks for any help.

Hi, I have been searching through the internet for a resolution, but each mention of an add-on or such for firefox leads to no-longer working pages it seems.

When I visit a website that has,for example, a list of 12 tips on a subject, (like 12 ways to annoy your cat ;)), it might show he first one, then i am supposed to click the forward arrow to see the next tip. However, i often find that it will not advance, unless i first refresh the page, then re-click the arrow, every single timei want to advance!

Is there a fix for this, or a good, updated add-on to auto-refresh?

Thanks for any help!

When I bring up a spreadsheet online in google docs Firefox starts dimming the screen, others tabs run slow. The screen dimming will last, for 2-3 minutes, and then clear up, 2-3 minutes later it will dim again. The fewer tabs I have helps, but not the answer. IMO the problem has gotten worse over the few upgrades. I have an HP 2000 Laptop, CPU 1300.000 MHz, memory 7586 MiB.

I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

The reset did not work and I turned every 'Javascript options to true as a test. I also flush any cache. My site still does not work (only in firefox)

Here is the web site: www.rch.ca   

The home page bubble should scroll down in the main page, and other bubbles (on other section of the main page) are not shown if I am scrolling down myself with the mouse.

Hi. Up until yesterday I always use java 6 u 17 (32 bit) and the plug-in at Firefox (ver 40) is working fine. One day for development purpose I had to uninstall my java and install java 6 u 45 (64 bit). Suddenly the java plug-in disappear from Firefox. After googling for a while it seems Firefox won't discover it because it was in the blocked list. Is there any way for me to install java plugins 6 updates 45 to Firefox? FYI, the java plugins was detected and works well in IE 11.

Thanks.

Why isn't Yahoo Mail working right in Firefox?

Since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing issues with Yahoo Mail. I am using Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop, and my security is provided by Kaspersky, which I just recently updated as well. At first I thought the issue was related to the Kaspersky update, but apparently not since Yahoo Mail works just fine in Internet Explorer. I do not, however, want to use Internet Explorer; I much prefer Firefox.

The problem is that when I log in to my Yahoo Mail account, the drop down menus don't work, for instance, Settings, Account, and Sign-out. Moreover, if I want to reply to an email, I have to keep clicking on "Reply" and sometimes even click "R" on the keyboard before the dialogue box opens. The same thing happens when I want to Forward an email. What's more, when I try to delete emails or empty the Spam or Trash boxes, I cannot always accomplish this by checking emails and then clicking "Delete." Sometimes I instead have to resort to checking off messages and then using 'Delete" on the keyboard. Finally, when I get ready to sign-out of Yahoo Mail, I have to click on Home, go to the Yahoo homepage, and only then will the drop-down menu work so I can log-out. One thing I have noticed is that there are no longer ads on the right-hand side in Yahoo Mail. there is only the a blank box with the word "Ad" in red letters the upper right corner, so I wonder if this absence of ads is somehow related to the issues I am experiencing. I am not tech savvy, so I would greatly appreciate if someone could address this question, and if you know what's causing the problem, tell me how to resolve it but tell me in layman's terms. :-) Thank you.

I am using Firefox version 59.0b4 (32-bit) and last night Hulu stopped working. Now when I log in to the site it gives me the message:

Watch TV shows and movies free online. Stream episodes of Family Guy, Grey's Anatomy, SNL, Modern Family and many more hit shows.

It appears that software on your computer is blocking JavaScript. To enjoy Hulu.com, you'll need to enable JavaScript in your web browser. Please configure your security software or browser plugins to allow Hulu.com to load JavaScript.

If you require assistance, please contact customer support.

I checked on Microsoft Edge and it is working just fine, so it is not my Kaspersky that is causing this issue. So this is obviously a Firefox problem. I realized I am using a Beta version, so perhaps this is some functionality that has not made it in. But beyond uninstalling Firefox and installing another version, how do I fix this?

I have a Mac and have Firefox 43.0.4 for my browser. I couldn't get an interactive website to work so did something with javascript. It was the wrong thing to do.

Gmail msg says: "JavaScript must be enabled in order for you to use Gmail in standard view. However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser. To use standard view, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, then try again."

Somehow I ended up disabling javascript and now can't reactivate it. I need help as non of the sites are working now.

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?

hi, every time i have checked back in with my plug-ins for at least the past 3 years, java has been continued to be disabled by firefox. But when i click on "check for updates",

it always just leads me to a page that tells me why it is disabled, not if there is an update, or ever will be.
Is it recommended to just forget about java ever being useful again?

And then what should i do instead, like when a site requires java to work properly? thanks!

HI, I've been having this problem with Firefox for the last two days. It does not display context and formatting of websites like Reddit, Mozilla, and sometimes YouTube. It has said many times that websites like youtube have an untrusted connection, and shockwave flash crashes. I tried uninstalling , cleaning, and reinstalling Firefox, I tried repairing it also.. I updated java, Flash, and shockwave. Did a complete scan of my computer with my Antivirus and Malwarebytes.

None of these problems are on Chrome or Edge.
