Description

4 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:28.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/28.0 Iceweasel/28.0a2 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131215004001

Steps to reproduce:

Saw "
A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://ecn.dev.virtualearth.net/mapcontrol/v7.0/7.0.20131202145924.46/js/zh-tw/veapiAnalytics.js:1 "

and then the "Don't ask me again" checkbox.



Expected results:

"Don't ask me again" needs to say "about THIS script" or "about ANY scripts... ever again"... else it is not clear.

Yes it probably means THIS script...

Well perhaps also add a second checkbox "... about ANY scripts".

We may want to dupe this to something like bug 614438. 
There are several bugs discussing the unresponsive script warning. 
jst, bz, do either of you know if there's a particular bug we should pick to dupe the others to? 
Or, would it be useful to go through them sometime and figure out which ones are still current? I'd be happy to help with that.

I don't really have a strong opinion on this.  Trying to stay out of UI design.  ;)

Liz, I'd recommend reaching out to the UX and frontend guys on this one, and work with them to dupe/fix etc. Thanks.

This seems like a pretty serious problem to me. In bug 1091705, we're finding that people have unknowingly disabled the slow script dialog.
