Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130910160258

Steps to reproduce:

Since some weeks firefox often shows a 'unresponsive script' dialog. Without flash-extension disabled, this problem does not appear!


Actual results:

They're different javascript-files, e.g. facebook includes some of them. These scripts freeze the whole browser until they're all blocked. So the whole Firefox is freezed although only one page is unresponsive, that should be changed.


Expected results:

- This message should not have appeared ;)
- only one tab freezes and not the full gui.

I have also seen this for the last many (all?) versions of Firefox, under Windows versions from NT4 to 7.

Wonder if this should be considered connected to bug 123908, although that claims to be a Mac-specific bug, even though similar problems appear under Windows.

Sorry, should actually have referenced bug 616843 (not Mac-specific) above.

Niklas, do you still see this when using a current version?
