Script Warning?

Anyone else getting a pop-up box notifying that a Script is Unresponsive?
I have Firefox with Ad Blocker and it started happening yesterday. I keep checking the box not to notify me again but it keeps popping up.
I sent a message to GW, but wondering if it is GW or Firefox or my computer?

Nope, it's not your computer. I also use Firefox with ad blocker and the same thing has been happening. Maddening!

RE: Script Warning?

Thanks for answering. Hopefully they fix whatever is causing the issue. So annoying.


 o
RE: Script Warning?

Yes, it was maddening. I thought something was wrong with my computer. I installed YesScript on Firefox and blacklisted this URL, and now everything loads at once.

Annoying script messages

If you add YesScript (and blacklist this site), you should get rid of those annoying messages

I'd been having problems with Internet explorer too so I've switched to Google Chrome lately-no problems so far.

so glad someone else brought this up. I thought it was AOL or my computer. Glad to hear it's GW but sure hope they fix it soon or are at least aware of it.....Maryl

Warning?

I'm afraid the problem is with Firefox and certain other browsers, in combination with the javascript on GW. Firefox recommends installing YesScript. I had no problem with Safari. Now, with YesScript, I have no problem with Firefox either.

I got a security warning when trying to install YesScript. Did you have that happen? I didn't install it as I was unsure about the security issue.

Does Chrome have Ad Blocker?

I know GW posted a notice at the top of the forum yesterday afternoon regarding the problem and they sent me an email regarding a "work around" till they fix the problem.

Well, I hope GW fixes this because if they leave it to me it won't get fixed. I have very little clue as to how to manipulate software or even what software I have or don't have with AOL. I read what GW had to say about it, and all I can say is I hope they fix it soon because, like electricty, I just want to flick a switch and have the lights come on...... Maryl

RE: Script Warning?

I don't recall if I got a warning with YesScript. I just know that I researched the issue on Firefox, and Firefox said that if the issue was just with certain websites, YesScript was the route to go.

I'm no techie, but here is what is said about YesScript: "JavaScript is sometimes misused by sites. They can show obtrusive ads or try to limit built in browser functions such as the back button or the right-click menu. Poorly written scripts can also hog your system's resources.

YesScript provides a JavaScript blacklist, letting you specify which sites aren't allowed to run JavaScript. A single click on the status bar icon can put the current site on the blacklist or take it off."

All I know is that after blacklisting GardenWEb on YesScript (takes a few seconds to do), Firefox works fine for this site. Of course, I could also use Safari, which had no downloading problems or messages. Pages were taking up to 10 seconds to load, and I kept getting messages about loading problems.

RE: Script Warning?

It is back again. :-(.
I can't go from one screen to the next without the script warning coming up again. Is anyone else seeing it again?

RE: Script Warning?

It appears when using Firefox but not with Chrome. You might try switching to Google Chrome at least until they get it straightened out.

RE: Script Warning - try Chrome

GardenWeb needs to do something about this. I would not advise the blacklist on YesScript because no one knows what GardenWeb will do. Last time, the YesScript blacklist worked; then GardenWeb changed things, and the blacklist prevented loading. Who knows what GardenWeb has done now!

RE: Script Warning?

No problems using Chrome. I'll knock on wood though!

I have problems on Internet Explorer. Sometimes it just freezes up and there is nothing I can do. Yesterday during the day, I could not get on here at all because of the freezing and then last night it all worked smoothly again.
