Unresponsive script

Posted

I get an error "Script: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsAddonRepository.js:338" Saying "the script is unresponsive". What does this mean, and how can I fix it?

This happened

Question owner

I got this one. file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsAddonRepository.js:342

Question owner

It's usually a different component each time that generates the error.

Question owner

Same issue with 3.6.7. Please fix/provide a workaround

parmoni 0 solutions 1 answers

Can I get any help with this one? Is it WiseStamp's fault? Mozilla's fault? Or caused by a conflict incompatibility issue with another simultaneously running script? or perhaps something else I'm not even thinking of?

Running FF 3.6.1 Win XP SP3, with all of the latest MS updates

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")
