How to resolve Java Script Error Message when visiting Twitter Website?
When using firefox the following error message appears on the Twitter website regarding Java Script that is already enabled in firefox. It only happens in firefox when I visit the Twitter Website, it doesn't happen on any other website and it does not happen in Internet Explorer when I visit Twitter's website.

When you have a problem with one particular site, a good "first thing to try" is clearing your Firefox cache and deleting your saved cookies for the site.
1. Clear Firefox's Cache
orange Firefox button or Tools menu > Options > Advanced
On the Network mini-tab > Cached Web Content : "Clear Now"
2. If needed, delete your twitter.com cookies here
While viewing a page on the site, right-click and choose View Page Info > Security > "View Cookies"
Then try reloading the page. Does that help? If you restart Firefox does it help? If not, please see the next section.
One common one is the add-on NoScript, which manages scripts on a site-by-site basis. However, you probably would be well aware if you were using NoScript.
Another is external security software that filters pages on a site-by-site basis. Can you check whether your security software includes this feature?
A third possibility is another add-on which for some reason is targeting Twitter. Check any ad blockers, Flash blockers or other "blockers" as well as any relating to privacy.
Finally, there could be other settings, software, or even malware interfering with your Twitter connection.
One standard diagnostic for interference by add-ons is to try Firefox's Safe Mode.
First, I recommend backing up your Firefox settings in case something goes wrong. See Back up and restore information in Firefox profiles. (You can copy your entire Firefox profile folder somewhere outside of the Mozilla folder.)
Next, restart Firefox in Firefox's Safe Mode (Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode) using
Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
In the Safe Mode dialog, do not check any boxes, just click "Continue in Safe Mode."
If the site works correctly, this points to one of your add-ons or custom settings as the problem.
None of it worked, most of the suggestions I had tried already anyway. Here is the screenshot of the error message anyway. I'm having a few problems with Twitter using Internet Explorer. I think it might be a Twitter problem and not a browser problem. Thanks for your help.
On the off chance that the message is a weird artifact rather than an indication of reality, could you try this:
