FF hangs on new StartJuno.com page

The (dinosaur) ISP Juno from California just unveiled a new startup page, StartJuno.com.

It doesn't look too different from the previous version of startup page.

It appears to load as usual, but for the time being pops up a box asking to take the viewer on a tour of the page's features.

Whether or not one goes through the tour, which is pretty mundane, afterward the cursor goes to 'wait'.

FF doesn't go into build-up-HUGE-amounts-of-memory mode, but just stops responding.

This appears to be FF-exclusive. No such problems IE or Chrome.

Alternatively, clicking it just causes FF to go solid-white-screen with "(not responding)" in the title bar. dL

The halt comes as it is "transferring data from ...syn-api.com"

Hmmm. I checked the page, and had no problem. With and without the tour.

HOWEVER, each time the web page loaded, I got a notice from Firefox that it block the page from re-directing. When I allowed this, the same page reloaded,

Type about:preferences#advanced<enter> in the address bar. Turn on; Warn me when websites try to redirect or reload the page

Does not change my situation. Still freezes within seconds of loading. (IE is unaffected, and [fyi] the Juno app for years had IE (8) hardwired into it.

Did you change the setting from my last message?

That was a week and a half ago. Never did see a note from 'em. The page does appear to work OK now, though.
