Error Code: Script: chrome://wot/content/search.js:360 causes Firefox 8.0 to freeze

Posted

I had also recently had Google Chrome installed on my XPro 32-bit operating system via the backdoor when upgrading my Real Player. I thought it might be a conflict with Chrome & Firefox as Chrome wanted to be my default even though I tried very hard to remove that default. I removed Chrome but let it have a toolbar on my Internet Explorer ver 8.0.6001.18702. I still have the freeze although not as often. Do I have to wait for a Firefox update to fix this like my similar conflict with my AVG 2010 that took several updates on both sides to resolve?

Additional System Details

This happened

Not sure how often

This started when...

after installing Firefox 8.0

Your UserAgent string in Firefox is messed up by another program that you installed.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Agent

type about:config in the URL bar and hit Enter
If you see the warning, you can confirm that you want to access that page.
Filter = general.useragent.
Right-click the preferences that are bold, one line at a time, and select Reset.
Then restart Firefox

Question owner

Thank you. You forced me to do some housecleaning I didn't really want to do. I usually have 10+ windows open at any one time & crash Firefox so that it will reboot them all when I open up the first window. That's all gone. Ce la guerre...

Only time will tell if my original error comes back. My guess is it won't as this house cleaning did fix another nagging problem I was having with my Google Calendar that insisted I was operating an out of date Firefox version that Google no longer supported. In the future I will remember this "about:config" then "Reset" everything in bold not just >br which brings up everything starting with "br" -- for browser. Basically a wildcard search alphabetically. Yep there were a lot of lines in bold. So I rest everyone.

Thank you again

That is a problem with the WOT (Web of Trust) extension.
