It keeps saying a script is running and says script running. No matter what box i check Stop, run, continue it just stays frozen. It seems this started when I updated Firefox.

If you have problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions then check this:

  • see if there are updates for your graphics drive drivers

If the above does not help,

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
(Mac=Options)
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

Sorry, I cannot figure this out. My updates are automatic so turned up nothing, tried safe mode, no change. the other suggestions are beyond my expertise.
