Question

firefox freezes windows 8

Since installing windows 8 firefox keeps freezing. I waited to install FF17 but even that freezes the very same way.

  • The only way I have found to solve it is to restart the computer and once in a while it fixes the issue till the next restart when the same happens again.
  • I have used FF for long and never saw this till I installed Windows 8 Pro few days ago.
  • I opened FF in safemode and the exact same happens so I guess this is not an add-on problem.
  • I reseted my FF and same problem is there.
  • After resetting, I opened FF in safemode, and still problem is there.
  • This happens when I open a webpage (most pages but not all), and after a long freeze FF says "Unresponsive script" and depending on the webpage gives a line, for example this when I tried to open www.BBCpersian.com:

Script: http://node1.bbcimg.co.uk/glow/glow/1.7.3/core/core.js:19
