I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

Firefox keeps freeing/hanging. First you will see the errors that pop up for me. Then the troubleshooting I have done to solve this problem.

Script Error: Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/imageBlock/imageBlock-3190704718._V1_.js:773

Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/digital/sitb/reader/v4/201411111537/en_US/sitb-library-js._V319867744_.js:34


Script: http://z-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/browser-scripts/site-wide-js-1.2.6-beacon/site-wide-5809221203._V1_.js:184


For troubleshooting I have tried the following: disable addon's and restart in safe mode (did not help) disable theme and restart in safe mode (did not help) reset firefox (did not help) uninstalled Firefox & removed all traces of browser from my computer (yes even the registry was removed)


after doing the above I still had all my previous settings. I used IE to download a fresh copy and tired again. Still have all my settings, plugin's, tabs, and unremoved cookies and a little history

I am not tech savvy but the script errors made me think of Javascript. I went to about:config and searched for Java when javascript.enabled showed up I disabled and the problem has disappeared.

I know I need this javascript enabled. I cannot do much of anything at my site with is disabled.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this script hanging problem.

Thanks for any help.

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.

When I bring up a spreadsheet online in google docs Firefox starts dimming the screen, others tabs run slow. The screen dimming will last, for 2-3 minutes, and then clear up, 2-3 minutes later it will dim again. The fewer tabs I have helps, but not the answer. IMO the problem has gotten worse over the few upgrades. I have an HP 2000 Laptop, CPU 1300.000 MHz, memory 7586 MiB.

Thx, Larry

Hi, I have been searching through the internet for a resolution, but each mention of an add-on or such for firefox leads to no-longer working pages it seems.

When I visit a website that has,for example, a list of 12 tips on a subject, (like 12 ways to annoy your cat ;)), it might show he first one, then i am supposed to click the forward arrow to see the next tip. However, i often find that it will not advance, unless i first refresh the page, then re-click the arrow, every single timei want to advance!

Is there a fix for this, or a good, updated add-on to auto-refresh?

Thanks for any help!

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.

I had problems with Firefox crashing lately, and it may have something to do with one of the plugins. So I checked the plugins I have, and I noticed that I have Java DT 8.0.660.18 installed, yet there is a warning that the plugin may be vulnerable. I have Windows XP, (yeah I know, stupid Microsoft doesn't support XP help anymore), and so getting the latest version of this will be tricky, let alone impossible. Should I change the setting in my Firefox to "never activate"?

Hi, I have gone through all the troubleshooting procedures you suggested to fix the problem of a script running that causes extreme slowness on my computers (I have 3 so it is not a computer issue). It only happens when I am looking at facebook posts in my email, or at least that is when it begins. My firefox is up to date, that is whenever I get an update from you it is installed. Firefox works fine so long as I am not going through my facebook posts in my email. The last time I did the troubleshooting process it cleared and messed up all my settings so I am not willing to do that again. I am looking for a real solution that will not cause a reset to all my settings but will enable me to actually look at my email without the computer creeping along. I have more than adequate internet service, I have AT&T Uverse 12 meg, so it is not my internet connection, I believe it is a problem with an incompatibility between firefox and maybe my email service (AT&T) and/or facebook. The solutions AT&T offered did not take care of the problem either, hence my letter to you. I have also eliminated any unnecessary programs at start-up so I do not think there is a conflict there. Please, what kind of solution do you have now? I did your troubleshooting process in March of this year.

Thank you for your consideration in this matter, Jenifer Stabler

I updated to the latest version of java a few days ago and now I can't watch any videos that use flash based players, like the ones on twitch.tv. I've tried reinstalling firefox and completely removing and reinstalling java but that didn't help.

I know mozilla feels java is vulnerable, and it probably is, but I'm going to watch the videos I want to watch regardless of what they think and making me switch browsers to do it is just going to annoy me, not save me from security risks.

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?

Today just after the latest auto update to 32.0.1, firefox keeps crashing on certain websites. For example signing into gmail.com it crashes every single time.

I tried a complete reinstall with a complete wipe of everything firefox related in program files, various appdata folders and ran a registry cleaner in the middle as well. I disabled all plugins and extensions and tried safe mode also. No luck.

Firefox does not give any crash report. I checked about:crashes and the actual crash report folder in the appdata/roaming/mozilla/firefox/crash reports. Yes, crash reporter is enabled. I only get the windows crash report, which is as follows:

For the last week every time I start a flash game it crashes before it even gets past the loading screen and I've uninstalled Flash downloaded the latest Flash, refreshed Firefox, disabled Acceleration, turned off Protected-Mode, even used Firefox in safe mode. Nothing has solved my issue I installed Windows 10 awhile ago so don't know if that is the issue.
