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?

Screens don't change or update when I hit Submit or other buttons. Explorer, no problem. Firefox seizes up. WHY?

I go on my banking website, and it shows recent transactions for last 10 days. Change the number to "last 31 days", NOTHING happens! Change to other viewing options. Nothing again!! If I replay the exact same choices out of Explorer, the screen updates immediately. I have noticed this happening more and more, recently. Various other websites offer buttons to select something, I click on them or hit Submit, and NOTHING happens. Replay in Explorer, it goes along fine. THIS NEVER USED TO HAPPEN BEFORE! WHAT'S WRONG, MOZILLA ?!?! I've used Firefox for a decade without this crap happening. Now I have to keep switching over more and more frequently to Explorer just to get past certain screens. Even when I was on the Mozilla site and described this issue in this "Questions" section, when I hit Submit, NOTHING HAPPENED! I had to re-do the whole bloody thing via Explorer. I tried rebooting Firefox in Safe Mode, and nothing changed, for ANY of the websites visited. You're losing it, Firefox. Fix this issue, or you'll be hearing the sound of thousands of users rushing out the door.

Note in the attached image, I switched to May's statement, but it's still locked on September. In Explorer, the update is immediate. This happens several times a day now. Getting exasperated. Will switch soon to something that WORKS, if this isn't fixed.

the problem is there on a particular site only that we have in our company. the page hangs at times or the unresposive scrip message pops up. It works fine also some of the times. The problem has been for almost two months after a particular firefox update. Also whenever there is a firefox update, the problem becomes more acute

I refreshed Fire Fox earlier today. Then attempted doing online jigsaw puzzles at http://www.jigidi.com/ and a few other sites. When I attempt to drag and drop, the puzzle piece often jumps away from the cursor, or entire puzzle jumps into upper left of screen. When I finally get hold onto the piece, it drags very slowly. I realize it's a javascript problem, but don't know how to correct it without going back to my old version of Fire Fox. Using Windows 10 and Fire Fox 43.0.4

The error message I get is Warning: Unresponsive Script and it contains: A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, open the script in the debugger, or let the script continue.

Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/text.xml:70

I've tried stopping it, opening it (no idea what to do with that) and letting it continue. Nothing helps. I had FF version 44 but on the advice of Kaspersky, I went back to the ESR Extended Support Release which is version 38 I think and voila! I still get the same error coming up. What can I do about this? FF is starting slowly and running slowly with long pauses when I click on something.

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.
