The countdown timer scripts hang on Firefox 20.0 but work on Firefox 19 or earlier.

Reverting to Firefox 19.0 and the countdown timer works again


Actual results:

Firefox became non-responsive [Beachball Cursor] with CPU usage near 0%
Other Mac OS applications were not affected


Expected results:

The countdown timer script should have counted down for 30 seconds

WFM with FF20 on Win 7. Firefox doesn't hang and displays fine the remaining time to download in the download panel.

Did you try with a fresh profile?

In addition, what's the error message about script unresponsing?

WFM on FF20 on Mac 10.8.3.  The countdown displays, and the download also appears to work.
Douglas, can you still reproduce this?
Have you tried following the suggestions of comment 1?
