I am getting repeated script errors, mostly due to YouTube videos.

Ever since updating to 10.0.2 I am getting a ridiculous amount of script errors. It mostly happens when trying to load a YouTube video, even if not on the YouTube site and embedded on a forum. The whole browser will freeze for 40 seconds or so and then a script error will pop-up saying a script on the page is unresponsive and to stop script or continue. Regardless of which I choose, the browser will then freeze for another 40 seconds and then the YouTube video will load...slowly and eventually play. It is doing this with a few other things as well, such as Facebook like buttons on some sites. I had no issues before the update yesterday.

Chosen solution

I finally fixed this by running the flash uninstaller I downloaded from Adobe, restarting, and then reinstalling the latest version of flash.

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).

Yeah, tried safe mode. Didn't fix it. I also tried creating a new profile. It's doing the same thing in an old beta version I have of FireFox too, so it must not be version related. The exact error is:

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.

YouTube videos are palying fine without error on both Chrome and IE though.
