I keep getting error messages about unresponsive scripts

When I'm browsing on Firefox (always different websites) I often get error messages that say "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." The script identified is nearly always something different.

Frequently I'll be on one website and it will suddenly slow down or freeze, and I will get a series of these error messages - often a minute or more apart from one another - and I will be unable to do anything else on my computer (on or off firefox) until the issue has resolved itself, because things will move so incredibly slowly. Even just minimizing firefox may take up to five minutes. Sometimes I stop the script, sometimes I let it continue, and I always check "don't ask me again," but it doesn't do anything.

This situation happens perhaps eight times a day and I'm easily losing 15 minutes PER HOUR to it. This can't possibly continue, and I'm not sure what to do.

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.

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

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.

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.

I am using Windows XP Pro and Firefox 41.0.1.

Is there an issue with the Java website when using Firefox Version 41.0.1?

When I go to the Java website to check that the latest Java update is installed, the box does not scan for the latest update. I checked that the latest update for Firefox was installed, cleared Firefox cookies, and closed and re-opened Firefox but the Java website is not working.

Anyone aware of this issue?

However, I can go into 'Add-Ons' within Firefox to check that the plug-ins are up to date or manually check the Java Downloads website for the latest Java version., both of which I did, and Java is up to date.

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

Hi I've instlled Java6upd7 for a legacy Oracle system we need to use but it doesnt appear in the addons. Browsing to our page states In order to access this application, you must install the J2SE Plugin version 1.6.0_07. To install this plugin, click here to download the oaj2se.exe executable. Once the download is complete, double-click the oaj2se.exe file to install the plugin. You will be prompted to restart your browser when the installation is complete.

I've done this too but to no avail.
