Steps to reproduce:

At first, I deleted all add-ons which I thought could conceivably cause the problem, and which were not crucial.  This helped somewhat and reduced the incidence. The text detail accompanying the message helped to locate the problem. I had thought it was cured, although the machine did speed up somewhat, it continued slower than it should be.

Actual results:

Now, I have received once again the "script failed to terminate" message, indicating looping. The accompanying text is: Script: resource://gre/modules/XPCOMUtils.jsm:323, which is identified as belonging to XPCOM utilities within mozilla.
For what it is worth, I am sending it along. I do not yet know what triggers this. The CPU is a Q6600 quad, fast enough that delays are quite obvious. The OS is W7, though that should not matter. The detailed version is 15.0.1. I am not clear as to just when it started. Sorry I cannot supply more info, but would be happy to if I know what.
