Why do I persistently get this particular script error that makes my browser hang for dozens of minutes?

chrome://global/content/bindings/tabbox.xml:73

It has nothing to do with any of the extensions or plug-ins I have activated. The only ones I ever have activated almost all of the time are Status-4-Evar in the Extensions category, and Adobe Acrobat in terms of Plug-ins. Both of these are up to date. It's also not about hardware acceleration, I don't believe, because I've disabled that feature in my options.

No, the error seems to pop up when I'm dealing with "busy" webpages with a lot of graphics and such. I've tried all of the little tricks they have here in the help, and it's still not stoping the script. I use to get a similar perisistent script error on older versions of Firefox.

A little help, por favor, to solve this once and for all, because I know I'm far from the only one experiencing this.

I have seen that there are many questions about dealing with unresponsive scripts, scripts that stopped responding, script busy, for various programs. Entering "script stopped responding" produces 1000 results.

So this seems to be a general problem, and is not tied to any program (though my problem lately is gmail).

It's very annoying to have to wait until the script problem gets to the point where all open windows freeze, slow down, move in jerks rather than smoothly, without knowing what is causing the problem, since it seems that a script problem can happen with just about anything you want to do.

What I want to know is whether there is a way to set up some sort of automatic system to deal with it.

Something like "if a script is unresponsive for X amount of time, stop the script". Ideally with that amount of time being less than the amount of time it takes for the unresponsive script to interfere with all functioning.

Or some way to limit its disruption to just the window/application with the problem - so if gmail is having the problem, youtube or nytimes.com will not be affected.

Even an early warning system would be nice, like a message popping up identifying the application with the script issue and that it is going more slowly than it should.

I am no expert, but I am thinking that most of the applications or activities involving scripts should work within a few seconds. If this is the case, a pop up saying, for example "a gmail script has been spazzing out for 15 seconds now".

Basically, anything that sends an alert or that stops the problem before it affects the entire system would be very very helpful.

Firefox will not open. I tried every single troubleshoot recommendation, and it still won't work. I thought it may be under the "corrupt profile data" troubleshoot article, but when I followed the recommendations to change to a new profile, the profile manager would not open or run on my computer--as if it never existed. I tried downloading a different browser, and as soon as I imported my firefox data, it started misbehaving in the exact same way.

This is getting extremely frustrating. Anybody know what to do?

I have tried nearly everything I have seen suggested so far, but nothing seems to work. Firefox started hanging and lagging randomly a few days ago. When scrolling, hovering over buttons, clicking and typing, there tends to be a half-second or 1 second delay. Youtube videos and other video websites are basically unwatchable because they lag so much.

So far I have tried:

- starting firefox in safemode - resetting firefox - using hardware accelleration and not using hardware acceleration to see if there was any changes. - disabling all plugins and extensions and disabling each one-by-one to see if any took up a lot of memory usage. (Firefox memory usage was sometimes over 400 Mb) - downloading a freeware program called "Firemin" which apparently stops memory leaks when used to launch firefox. (Memory usage went from 350-400 Mb to 4-8 Mb !) This helped slightly when watching youtube videos but not with any other hanging and lagging problems.

I'm currently using Firefox 22.0.

Please if you have any suggestions respond because I do not want to have to resort to using Chrome. I am too used to using firefox and don't want to lose my bookmarks.

Why is my Adobe Flash slow and laggy on Firefox, no matter what I try, but works just fine on IE7?

Whenever I watch anything requiring Adobe Flash (a YouTube vid, an anime episode on Crunchyroll, the latest episode of a show on RoosterTeeth's website, etc) on my Firefox (Version 22), it's horribly laggy and slow, with the picture AND sound lagging and 'skipping', and occasionally for YouTube the image will 'pixellate' and/or the sound quality will nosedive. According to the right-click option, my Firefox uses Flash 11.8. However, watching a vid on my Internet Explorer 7, which uses Flash 10.0, produces no such problems; the picture and sound are excellent. This problem has persisted ever since shortly after I first installed and began using Firefox earlier this year, when I (apparently mistakenly) accepted the offer to update my Firefox's Adobe Flash to Version 11 (it kept giving me "your Flash is outdated" messages that I had to click away to watch a vid, and that annoyed me so I wanted to make it stop).


This problem has been plaguing me for several months, and now that RoosterTeeth no longer supports IE7, I am unable to properly watch their new episodes. I have tried nearly everything - disabling Hardware Acceleration (with Firefox AND with Adobe Flash), having other tabs closed, several Flash updates as they become available since this problem's inception, upgrading my graphics driver, desperate prayer to God (and I'm a fairly secular man), EVERYTHING.


Could someone please tell me what is causing this months-running problem and how I could possibly hope to fix it?

Each time I use firefox popup ads for items like video players, download "assist" programs and other spam appear, some in large weindows almost filling the screen. Many have Mozilla Firefox as a label in the title bar. Popup blocker is enabled and does not stop them. I have also tried blocking the URL of the ones that have one, this also did not stop them. They are becoming more frequent, and are not connected with any particular website. Asking for advice on how to stop these, otherwise I may have to abandon Firefox. Thanks, Rokahaszn

How do I remove an auto-completed address entry from the address bar in firefox.

Every time I start typing, firefox auto-completes a url address I do not want.

Please take note, this is NOT the same as removing a history entry from the address bar (start typing -> select entry -> SHIFT-DEL). I know how to do that.

I do not want to delete all my history if possible.

Thanks in advance.
