Warning Unresponsive Script

by FarmerBlusWife / January 26, 2014 8:05 AM PST

I have a business page on Facebook and post a lot. I schedule posts every day. For the last 3 days I have been getting warnings of an Unresponsive Script. I use Windows Vista and Firefox as my browser.

It says Script:

https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net/rsrc.php/v2/yy/r/-avW-Qqk8iu.js:5

I have to hit stop script and my post will usually then go through, but I have to refresh the page to do anything more. It does not do it every time, but about every other. I need to know what to do to get rid of it. I have asked and no one else seems to be having the same trouble with Facebook.

I get this at Samsung.com too.

It's not a sign of anything wrong as we know that people like you and I write the code. It only means they need to re-write the code.

Wouldn't everyone get that?

I have talked to others that schedule just like I do. They are not getting that message. Wouldn't we all get it?

No.

That's what makes it hard for the web master/author to work with. They need to see a machine that shows the symptom.

You bring up a good point. Is it time for the Personal Computer to end? That is, time for no more choices for browser, antivirus and such?

No, it has not been taken care of and it is really slowing me down as well. What is weird is that if I refresh the page each time schedule something it does not do that. It only does it on the second time I schedule without refreshing. It is a pain.

All this means: the script for some reason takes longer than Firefox allowes. Luckily, it's just a setting how long it waits before getting impatient and giving that message.
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/warning-unresponsive-script tells how to have it wait longer.

Did you already complain with Facebook? If they don't know this happens, they won't fix it either.,

I just reset Firefox (although I had to re-install some things) and so far I am not getting that error.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
