Etsy problem

Hi,

I am an Etsy shop owner. I have been told that Firefox is the best browser to use for adding new listings and editing existing listings in my Etsy shop.

However, the problem that I am having with Firefox is this: when I want to either add a listing or edit one, I get a yellow bar at the top that says: A website is slowing down your computer, either click stop it or wait. I have tried both and both give me the same problem. The 'radio' buttons become unusable on the site and I cannot click on them anymore (such as the Publish button, for example). So I am unable to save any of my work and must just shut down. I have also tried do nothing and this just freezes everything.

This is very very frustrating and counterproductive. PLEASE HELP ME!

”Webpage is slowing down your browser” This is the new way the browser tells you there is a problem with the script program(s). https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/warning-unresponsive-script?cache=no

Hi Fred, Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, this did not work. At first I thought it did, everything was working great, but the 'radio' buttons still don't work. I still get the bar at the top too. Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you!!

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}
by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
