On sites like forums.lutron.com many of the features just don't work. When I hover over "like this post," a box pops up that says "javascript://" I am unable to click the text. This applies to many of the features like reply, reply with quote, thanks for this post, et. al.

I have checked and Javascript is enabled (about:config). I have tried IE and it does not have this issue. When I hover over and item in IE the pop up box says something like "http://forums.lutron.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=32524" and it does work. 

I'm not sure if this is related but when I click "+ Reply to Thread)" any formatting I do is lost. Carriage returns are stripped so everything is just one big run-on sentence. This occurs in both FF & IE.

Lutron suggested I switch to Chrome. That is NOT going to happen!

I have the following addons Adblock - I've tried disabling, text in the popup box changes but still does not work. Facebook Container - site is not in a container tab. Firefox multi-account containers - site is not in a container tab Ghostery - just added today. Google analytics opt out - disabled, no affect. Pop up blocker ultimate - disabled, no affect. Replace Rotate and zoom image.

I get a yellow bar all the time that is preventing pages from loading, it is always prompting me saying a page or script is running slowly do I want to wait or abort.. This is poping up in far less time than it usually takes any webpage to load with any browser on my system. I have stupid windows 8.1... I would prefer 7 as it is easier to use, but there is little that I can do about that other than wipe the disk and put linux on it.

Anyways, how do I give that yellow bar a REASONABLE wait time about 30 seconds instead of a few miliseconds?

Hello,

 This is more of a search for others with this exact notification.

It started about three months ago. I've disabled all add-ons, but that did not help. I tried disabling Javascript, that also did not help. I've always been on the latest Firefox release. I'm running Windows 7 Pro. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I keep getting error messages about unresponsive scripts

When I'm browsing on Firefox (always different websites) I often get error messages that say "A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue." The script identified is nearly always something different.

Frequently I'll be on one website and it will suddenly slow down or freeze, and I will get a series of these error messages - often a minute or more apart from one another - and I will be unable to do anything else on my computer (on or off firefox) until the issue has resolved itself, because things will move so incredibly slowly. Even just minimizing firefox may take up to five minutes. Sometimes I stop the script, sometimes I let it continue, and I always check "don't ask me again," but it doesn't do anything.

This situation happens perhaps eight times a day and I'm easily losing 15 minutes PER HOUR to it. This can't possibly continue, and I'm not sure what to do.

Recaptchas do not appear the little box you have to click to say I'm not a robot does not appear and it seems that the concensus is to upgrade my java to the current release.

That would be fine but im running a 32bit XP system and java no longer provides updates for 32bit systems.

My video drivers are up to date.

Internet explorer displays them correctly despite the old version of java so this is a firefox only problem.

the little icon to the left of the address is a green padlock which should mean that none of the info being loaded is from an insecure source so firefox should not be blocking anything.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hi I've instlled Java6upd7 for a legacy Oracle system we need to use but it doesnt appear in the addons. Browsing to our page states In order to access this application, you must install the J2SE Plugin version 1.6.0_07. To install this plugin, click here to download the oaj2se.exe executable. Once the download is complete, double-click the oaj2se.exe file to install the plugin. You will be prompted to restart your browser when the installation is complete.

I've done this too but to no avail.

For the last week or so, (today is 012216) Firefox has continually been locking up and/or giving me script errors that do not go away even after a Refresh. I've had to set Chrome as my default because I keep losing too much data due to these lockups. I've been having to use Task Manager to shut Firefox down. PLEASE HELP!!!

While playing FarmVille 2 foxfire keeps hanging - says at top "not responding". I can load game and play for a few minutes but then hangs. Sometimes it hangs right after loading. Will not come back so I have to quit foxfire. I have been having the problem in last several weeks but yesterday it got really bad. I usually only had to restart foxfire once to get it to work. I have tried refreshing foxfire. Also disabling hardware acceleration. My plugins are up to date. My computer is only 1.5 years old and I have windows 10. I can play FV2 on Google Chrome and MSN edge but both are slow and jerky. I really prefer foxfire over the other ones.

The error message I get is Warning: Unresponsive Script and it contains: A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/text.xml:70

I've tried stopping it, opening it (no idea what to do with that) and letting it continue. Nothing helps. I had FF version 44 but on the advice of Kaspersky, I went back to the ESR Extended Support Release which is version 38 I think and voila! I still get the same error coming up. What can I do about this? FF is starting slowly and running slowly with long pauses when I click on something.
