I have the following Javascript code which has been working for over 10 years and still works on Chrome, but does not work on FF 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

```

/************************************************************************

*  timer														        *
*																		*
*  This timer is started whenever the user presses a key in the input	*
*  field and pops if 0.9 second passes without a new keystroke			*
************************************************************************/

var timer = null;

/************************************************************************

*  function onKeyDownName												*
*																		*
*  This method is called when a key is pressed in the Name field.		*
*  A timer is set so that when the user stops typing the selection		*
*  list is repopulated.												*
*																		*
*  Input:																*
*		event	if passed, event.keyCode identifies the key pressed		*
*				in older releases of Internet Explorer use window.event	*
************************************************************************/

function onKeyDownName(event) {

   if (timer)

clearTimeout(timer);

   timer	= setTimeout(update, 900);

} // function onKeyDownName

/************************************************************************

*  function update														*
*																		*
*  This method is called when the user stops typing to repopulate		*
*  the selection list based upon the current contents of the Name		*
*  field.  It is also the onchange method for the following fields:	*
*  'birthmin', 'birthmax', 'incMarried', 'includeParents',				*
*  'includeSpouse', and 'Sex', and it is called by the onchange		*
*  method for the field 'treeName'.									*
************************************************************************/

function update() {

   var	form	= document.nameForm;
   if (form)
   {		// form present

var url = "/FamilyTree/getIndivNamesXml.php"; ... code to complete url by appending values of elements from form // invoke script to obtain list of names for selection list HTTP.getXML(url, // see O'Reilly Javascript gotNames, noNames);

// clear out the old selection list while we are waiting var select = form.individ; select.options.length = 0;

// put a dummy entry at the top of the selection, otherwise // selecting the first name does not call onchange var name = '[choose an individual]'; var option = new Option(name, -1, false, false); option.innerHTML = '[choose an individual]'; select.appendChild(option);

   }		// form present
   else
       alert("nominalIndex.js:update: cannot find form");

} // function update ```


When I put alerts into nameOnKeyDown and update I see that nameOnKeyDown is called but update is never called.

You can see the above code in action at https://www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=allenby,%20a&treename=&lang=en

This code has worked for over 10 years, and still is working today on Chrome, but the timer never pops on Firefox 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux 19.10.

Long running scripts have been a constance daily occurrence every time I use my desktop computer since seems like forever. This is the latest one: chrome://calendar/content/calendar-base-view.xml:198..... Not sure if they are all calendar scripts because I'm not always given any script info, just a non responding error message sometimes. I asked for help once before and tried what was suggested, as best I could, but I still have the aggravating problem just as often as ever. However, admittedly I'm not all that computer savy and am more of a user than I am a fixer. My browser is up-to-date and I also reloaded a new one recently. Add-ons are also disabled. Any help at all will be appreciated, thanks.

On sites like forums.lutron.com many of the features just don't work. When I hover over "like this post," a box pops up that says "javascript://" I am unable to click the text. This applies to many of the features like reply, reply with quote, thanks for this post, et. al.

I have checked and Javascript is enabled (about:config). I have tried IE and it does not have this issue. When I hover over and item in IE the pop up box says something like "http://forums.lutron.com/newreply.php?do=newreply&p=32524" and it does work. 

I'm not sure if this is related but when I click "+ Reply to Thread)" any formatting I do is lost. Carriage returns are stripped so everything is just one big run-on sentence. This occurs in both FF & IE.

Lutron suggested I switch to Chrome. That is NOT going to happen!

I have the following addons Adblock - I've tried disabling, text in the popup box changes but still does not work. Facebook Container - site is not in a container tab. Firefox multi-account containers - site is not in a container tab Ghostery - just added today. Google analytics opt out - disabled, no affect. Pop up blocker ultimate - disabled, no affect. Replace Rotate and zoom image.

I get a yellow bar all the time that is preventing pages from loading, it is always prompting me saying a page or script is running slowly do I want to wait or abort.. This is poping up in far less time than it usually takes any webpage to load with any browser on my system. I have stupid windows 8.1... I would prefer 7 as it is easier to use, but there is little that I can do about that other than wipe the disk and put linux on it.

Anyways, how do I give that yellow bar a REASONABLE wait time about 30 seconds instead of a few miliseconds?

Hello,

 This is more of a search for others with this exact notification.

It started about three months ago. I've disabled all add-ons, but that did not help. I tried disabling Javascript, that also did not help. I've always been on the latest Firefox release. I'm running Windows 7 Pro. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I am using Firefox version 59.0b4 (32-bit) and last night Hulu stopped working. Now when I log in to the site it gives me the message:

Watch TV shows and movies free online. Stream episodes of Family Guy, Grey's Anatomy, SNL, Modern Family and many more hit shows.

It appears that software on your computer is blocking JavaScript. To enjoy Hulu.com, you'll need to enable JavaScript in your web browser. Please configure your security software or browser plugins to allow Hulu.com to load JavaScript.

If you require assistance, please contact customer support.

I checked on Microsoft Edge and it is working just fine, so it is not my Kaspersky that is causing this issue. So this is obviously a Firefox problem. I realized I am using a Beta version, so perhaps this is some functionality that has not made it in. But beyond uninstalling Firefox and installing another version, how do I fix this?

Hi all,

     I'm using the latest version of FF 53.0.3 (32-bit) on Windows 7, and lately, every single tab loads slow with a momentary pop-up stating "a web page is slowing down your browser".  The pages do end up loading, and I see others have this problem as well.  I am wondering if it's because Flash (again using the latest version) no longer works as Firefox has done away with all add-ons??  Getting extremely frustrated with Firefox.  I don't get these error pop-ups in Chrome!

Firefox suddenly stopped working today. When I open it, it tells me that it's already open (which it isn't) and that it can't find or load my profile. If I go directly to profiles and create a new one, I can open it, but all my bookmarks are gone. And then if I close and try to reopen it, the same thing happens--I can't open it and get the same error message.

One thing I figured out is that the profile can’t be read only, and I discovered that mine was (why I don't know), but when I try to uncheck read only, it instantly reverts back to read only, which is weird.

I’ve tried reinstalling Firefox several times, but it’s always the same, even with a brand-new installation, I can’t open it and get the same error message. What can I do if reinstalling doesn’t even work?

Any web site that has a Javascript media element isn't working through Firefox on one of my computers. Other computers are working fine, so it's clearly a problem with my machine.

For example, the play button on this site doesn't do anything: http://radiodeluxewithjohnpizzarelli.com/. There are no obvious errors in the console log. Also, when I test to see if Javascript is working at this site: http://www.javatester.org/javascript.html all seems fine. I'm running Javascript 1.5 with Firefox 50.0.

I tried restarting with add-ons disabled. I also tried doing a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Can you suggest additional diagnostics that I can try?

Thanks.
