Firefox is having difficulty with a script and it appears to be having difficulty with a script in outlook.com or at least with one of the internet sites i have open, outlook.com, gmail, or outlook contacts "people". I get this script error and slow response often but not every time i'm logged in. However, it always happens with outlook.com open. Scrolling through the debug window has some references to outlook.com. It is always this same script and when it happens, stopping the script or clicking continue does nothing but hang up firefox. I have to use task mgr to kill firefox and then restart it. Can i do anything on my end to fix this very annoying issue? I have clicked on share data with outlook.com open but i'm not getting this script error at this time.
