Warning: Unresponsive script

I love using the add-on, Viewmakrs. It's one add-on I can't live without. Every time when I go to add a bookmark or Control-D, Firefox freezes up, and then gives me:

Warning: Unresponsive script

and I get one of these errors every time, even when I open a new Window:

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.

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/model.js:28

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/model.js:69

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/capture.js:83

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/capture.js:98

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/data.js:128

Script: chrome://viewmarks/content/editmark.js:270

Then, once in a blue moon, I get this error, not from Viewmarks:

Script: resource://gre/components/nsBlocklistService.js:771

TypeError: PlacesUtils.nodeIsLivemarkContainer is not a function

Can anyone suggest a quick fix without disabling ViewMarks? I've written to the author of ViewMarks with no reply. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank You.

ps I've included my Troubleshooting information below, if this helps anyone.

Re: Warning: Unresponsive script

This is a problem with the ViewMarks 1.0.4 extension.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.
