Can someone please tell me what to do to stop getting the below Warning about a script?

Posted

I have been using Firefox for several months, and in just the last 2 days I have started to get a Warning that states: A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script: http://c.betrad.com/geo/ba.js:18

It is really slowing me down, and I will have to go back to Internet Explorer if I cannot get this resolved.

Chosen solution

Clear the cache and the cookies from sites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).
