I regularly get a nonresponsive script, especially in a browser session that has been around for awhile. I find that if I end nonresponsive scripts, the browser remains stable. Heaven help me if I leave a browser window open for several hours, and return to the computer to find it tied up and it will take 15 minutes to respond to a mouse click or a keyboard entry until I can finally get Firefox shut down or forced to end.

I tried to use the "Always perform this action" check box and select to end the script. I figured if I choose that option it would always end a nonresponsive script when it's time for the box to appear.

I would prefer that over finding the computer tied up with a nonresponsive browser four hours later.

OS Windows XP SP3 and now Firefox 27.0.1

Gmail and YouTube seem to be two sites that are especially troublesome.

I've successfully updated latest Java plug-in to latest version but Mozilla plugin page shows it's still outdated

Mozilla Plug-in page showed Java was outdated and needed updating. I did do that but the plug-in page still shows Java Deployment Toolkit 7.0.90.5 10.9.2.5 & Java (TM) Platform SE 7U9 10.9.25 as being outdated. But when I go to my add-on page and check my plug-ins, those are both showing up as being installed and enabled and the date I updated them on which was today 12/12/12. Also I went to www.java.com to check what the latest version was and when you click on downloads it automatically checks to see if you are running the current version and it says I am running the latest version. I even went and uninstalled some old java updates that I forgot to remove in my programs. Should I just ignore the *outdated* plug-in reminders for those two on Mozilla's plug-in page since everything else is telling me I did it correctly? Thing is, how do I know when there is a new update if those two never update and consistently show they are outdated? Thanks to anyone that may be able to answer this question.

While downloading a music sharing program called "imesh" a number of different addons were added to my toolbars.I uninstalled the imesh program but all the additional addons stayed. I got rid of most of these but my home page was switched to the "imesh" search page. No matter how many times I have tried to switch back to my preferred home page, as soon as I shut down Firefox and then return to it later, the homepage has been swithched back to the "imesh" search page.

A bad coded web page kept on catching my attempts to close it. And I was stucked in a never ending loop of trying to close it or Firefox down with no possibileties to close. Other tabs were no problems. And I did have more than one open tab when I tried. I know I cant close the last tab. But it must be possible to force close this kind of bad written and bugging web-pages. I was using a laptop with Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and the latest 3.6 version of Firefox.

Gmail gives "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." error message only in Firefox.

When I load up iGoogle and click the Gmail tab in the top menu I get "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete." and like it says never completes.

I have the official Gmail gadget on my iGoogle desktop, and instead of displaying my inbox says "Please re-enter your password to see your information. (Why?)" so I clicked this (the "Please re-enter your password" and "Why?" part were links) and made sure the URL looked safe just in case it was some phishing scam, and it looked fine. My details were already in the username and password boxes and when I log in the message "Please re-enter your password to see your information. (Why?)" pops up again in the Gmail gadget window, same happens if I try and re-enter my details.

I've opened up Chrome and IE and Gmail and the iGoogle gadget work fine with both of these.

It's strange because Gmail and the iGoogle Gmail gadget has been working fine until now, and there have been no network or hardware changes on my end.

Hi, since a couple of days ago, I am having trouble opening a select few webites and get the message that they have timed out. They are popular ones, ebay.ca, BBC, and chapters.ca. I also cannot view the itunes store in itunes, although I am still able to update podcasts. The only thing I did recently to the computer was uninstall norton, and install Microsoft security essentials. I have xp and firefox 3.6.3 I've searched for solutions and have cleared cache, cookies, updated java, ran norton removal tool, removed cookie file, tried no proxy, tried auto-detect proxy...and I am stumped. I don't know what else to try. Any ideas?

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Why is this saying this and how do I fix it so i can see the site I want to see. It has let me see the site I want before...just did this today.

This is my 6th attempt to download a 1.3gig movie file. I have already turned off my virus check so that Firefox will download past the 1 gig mark. However, this morning my internet connection failed and the download was gone, though it is not completed to its full amount, just a little over 1 gig.

Is there any way to recover and resume this download from the existing, almost completed file? The server does support resuming downloads.
