script problem with Firefox 1.5

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Trevor Smithson, Dec 16, 2005.

  1. I've just installed Firefox 1.5 on a Windows XP machine. I frequently
    get a pop-up message from Firefox saying something like "A script
    running on this page appears to not be responding. Would you like
    to terminate the script".

    This happens even when I've just started the browser and there's
    no page loading (my home page is set to blank). Also happens
    with various websites, but it consistently happens just after
    starting Firefox.

    Is there anything I can do to stop this? I've tried uninstalling and
    reinstalling, but that did nothing. I have no extensions installed.

    Thanks.

    Start up the Javascript Console from Tools. When it starts, clear it,
    then go to a page where you're having problems, or whatever, and then
    read what the console says, then report back here. You may have a
    problem with an incompatible extension or theme.
