Firefox 19.0 locks up when trying to load Facebook. This started yesterday, March 5 at about 1300 hrs PST. After a long delay, a Warning: Unresponsive Script dialog appears, saying that "A script on this page may be busy or it may have stopped responding". The script listed is https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yH/r/L
Facebook loads normally in both Chrome and IE8.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.
To Reset Firefox do the following:
Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Thanks for the reply, but no joy.
More of the Facebook home loads than before, but it Firefox still freezes.
Now it locks up on a different script:
"A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.
If I click, "Stop Script" Firefox stays frozen. On force close, the Windows Error Report sequence says I need to update Firefox, but the Mozilla website says Firefox is up-to-date.
Please update the Java plugin to the latest 7U17 version.
See Java Platform > Java SE 7U17 and 6U41 (JRE Download)

You can also check for problems caused by other plugins like Java.
The Java SDK 7U17 turned into a can of worms. The installation stalled twice, both times sending McAfee Virus protection into overdrive. The second time, it also triggered a Windows Data Execution error stop. I used mcsonfig to disable all Start-Up items, restarted, did a complete uninstall/reinstall on the McAfee Virus protection. Then I was able to install the java 7U17.
Still no joy. Facebook still freezes Firefox.
Thanks for the info guys. Is anyone having this issue that isn't using the Facebook Desktop Plugin? We are trying to gather data to get to the root of the issue.
