I get a popup at the top of my reading pane that says "A web page is slowing down your browser" what would you like to do - stop it or wait. Why/What can I do?

Posted

As I said in my question - I continuously get a popup window at the top of my browser reading pane that says: "A web page is slowing down your browser". What would you like to do. Stop it. or Wait. This is seriously slowing down or locking up my computer and, now another feature of that popup window has started occuring - instead of always staying there and permitting me to click on Stop It, it is scrolling up and down just enough to see it but not being able to click on it.

I've run various virus (AVG) and malware (Malware Bytes, IObit Malware Fighter) and Spybot and if there were any issues I'd have them cleaned or quarantined.

Yes - I believe I'm running Firefox 53.0, do have Windows 7 and believe I have Shockwave Flash 25.0 r0 installed (not sure).

Wondering what the cause of this problem is and, is there any way I can fix it.

Thank you kindly, in advance.

Very respectfully and sincerely,

TheSoftballJunkie

PS - this is driving me crazy

”Webpage is slowing down your browser” This is the new way the browser tells you there is a problem with the script program(s). https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Fix-slowness-crashing-error/Warning-Unresponsive-script-What-it-means-and-how-to-fix-it/ta-p/2561
