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?

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 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

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?

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.

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!

While playing FarmVille 2 foxfire keeps hanging - says at top "not responding". I can load game and play for a few minutes but then hangs. Sometimes it hangs right after loading. Will not come back so I have to quit foxfire. I have been having the problem in last several weeks but yesterday it got really bad. I usually only had to restart foxfire once to get it to work. I have tried refreshing foxfire. Also disabling hardware acceleration. My plugins are up to date. My computer is only 1.5 years old and I have windows 10. I can play FV2 on Google Chrome and MSN edge but both are slow and jerky. I really prefer foxfire over the other ones.

These appear to be related to a couple of different javascript errors, but my "expertise" goes little further than that. This problem DOES seem to occur more often when there is video on a (even unloaded) tab, but can happen when looking at any page with any type of content, or while not looking at the browser at all (inactive window). I have also recently been getting "This browser does not support video playback" on Twitter, but I assume that is related to the change from anigifs to HTML5. I have tried refreshing Firefox, as well as completely restarting from a fresh install. My video drivers are up to date, moreso than my on-board Intel hardware. Hardware issues MIGHT be a possibility, so if anyone sees evidence of such a problem from the dumps, please advise me of it so I can close in on the root of the matter.

While trying to enter this info and search for answers, I also had these crashes pop up: 73e8fb64-d0f9-4be2-9c5f-310c3313a6e9 10/4/2015 6:03 PM 21cb12f7-f658-4976-9baf-3fe5bcd58e78 10/4/2015 6:03 PM bp-a83a747f-45e8-4c93-a3b8-af4da2151005 10/4/2015 6:00 PM bp-2f3617c3-159a-4d24-9a8d-bff172151005 10/4/2015 6:00 PM

Someone, please get back to me, even if to say I need to start using IE. I will laugh at you, but at least appreciate the attentiveness. Lee

I have an application at work for which I need Java 7. The newer versions of Java do not work with it. I've been using Firefox 41.0.2 just fine with Java 7R17 (32 bit), but now that I have upgraded to Firefox 43.0.1, Java 7R17 no longer works. Even if I just go to the "verify java" page (https://www.java.com/verify/), the Java plugin in Firefox locks up and after a few seconds I get the following pop up window:

Warning: Unresponsive plugin

may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plugin now, or you can continue to see if the plugin will complete.

Don't ask me again Continue Stop Plugin

I encountered this in Firefox 42 also, and was forced to roll back to 41, which I will be doing now as well. Please let me know if there is a way to fix this.

Recaptchas do not appear the little box you have to click to say I'm not a robot does not appear and it seems that the concensus is to upgrade my java to the current release.

That would be fine but im running a 32bit XP system and java no longer provides updates for 32bit systems.

My video drivers are up to date.

Internet explorer displays them correctly despite the old version of java so this is a firefox only problem.

the little icon to the left of the address is a green padlock which should mean that none of the info being loaded is from an insecure source so firefox should not be blocking anything.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
