Constantly receiving script errors with modzilla

May 27, 2012 at 01:19:07
Specs: Windows XP
Constantly receiving script errors with Mozilla. I've tried reinstalling Firefox. It seems to also happen on my other laptop, which is running Vista. When they happen, my browser slows to a crawl and hangs until the pop up finally comes up telling me about the script error. Sometimes the script error mentions chrome, which I'm not using and have deleted. I've noticed I don't get them as much if I disable Flash. Happens most often on Google sites (gmail, google calendar, etc). I've ran Norton a thousand times, and Spybot, etc. I've tried reinstalling Flash. It only seems to stop though when I disabled flash.

Try updating the Flash Player: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

"I've ran Norton a thousand times"

Do you self a favor & uninstall that garbage software & replace it with one of the lightweight freebies. And you mentioned you "deleted" Chrome? Hopefully you meant you uninstalled it? Because deleting it will leave a ton of crap behind. Download, install, & run CCleaner-Slim - remove everything it finds.

Hold the shift key while launching firefox, a safemode box will pop up, now reset everything and relaunch.

"Sometimes the script error mentions chrome, which I'm not using and have deleted."

Did you actually delete it, or did you un-install it properly as you're supposed to do ?
You shouldn't get any messages about Chrome if you un-installed it properly.

If your problem started after you deleted Chrome rather than un-installing it, install the same version of Chrome, and then un-install it properly in Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel..

I actually uninstalled Chrome, sorry - it was late when I posted it. And I've disabled add-ons. That's how i figured out it was the flash causing the problems. I have uninstalled/reinstalled flash and still have the problem. I NEED flash to work on the net -- so just disabling it isn't a long term solution.

Do you have any idea when you first started having this problem ?
Was it after you had installed something, or had removed something ?
Was it after you had used an anti-malware program to un-install something ?
Spybot and AdAware are well known to have sometimes removed the WRONG things.
.....

NOTE that sometimes the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs - a part that runs all the time scanning for suspicious activity - will interfere with the proper installation of third party software, or major Microsoft updates that cannot be installed automatically by Automatic Update, the software will not install properly, and you may get no indication of that at all while installing the software.
To avoid that possibilty, you should always DISABLE the resident module(s) of anti-malware programs, BEFORE you install third party software (software other than most Microsoft Updates, etc., that did not come with Windows ), especially when it's a major or complicated software package.
E.g. if you are using the free or paid version of AVG, you should disable the Resident Shield in AVG's 's settings in Windows (in AVG 2012 that's done under the title AntiVirus). In Norton (Symantec) products, there may be several things you need to disable, or set so they don't load for a specific short amount of time.
If you don't know how to do that, tell us which anti-malware software you are using.
When you are sure the software has installed correctly, re-enable the resident module(s).

" I've ran Norton a thousand times, and Spybot, etc...."

You SHOULD NOT install more than one anti-malware program in Windows that has one or more resident module - a part that runs all the time looking for suspicious activity. If more than one of them has a resident module, they are likely to CLASH with each other and cause you problems !
E.g. Both Spybot free and paid, and Norton products trial and paid, have at least one resident module !!
The free version of Malwarebytes has no resident module that causes a problem, but the paid version of it does have a resident module that might.
AVG free and paid, Avast free and paid, AdAware free and paid, McAfee products, Microsoft's free Windows Defender anti-spyware software, Microsoft's free Security Essentials software, ALL have at least one resident module.
.....

"Sometimes the script error mentions chrome, which I'm not using and have deleted."

As I said...

"You shouldn't get any messages about Chrome if you un-installed it properly."

"I've tried reinstalling Flash. It only seems to stop though when I disabled flash."
" I have uninstalled/reinstalled flash and still have the problem. "

In that case, it's probably not caused by Flash, but Flash is affected by whatever the problem is..

Are you getting specific script errors when you do specific things with whatever that are the same each time ?

If yes, quote the error message(s).

Your problem MAY be caused by a problem with Windows script or Java script.

Do you get script errors when you use IE ?
....

By the way.....

- all XP versions come with IE 6, but it does NOT work properly with most web pages anymore . You should install IE 8.

Download Internet Explorer 8
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/...

- Even if you don't want to use IE
- installing IE 8 installs some files that are not specifically for the IE browser that all web browsers benefit from.

- there are some things you can only do in IE.
E.g. Use the Windows Update or Microsoft Update web pages on the Microsoft web site..

Except for Norton, I'm not running any malware protection in the background that I'm aware of.

Does this help? Here are a few of the script errors I've received in the last 24 hours

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?u...

XstringBundle:57


chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml:0.

Yet, how can I continue to get a script error that includes chrome if I no longer have it? I DID uninstall it - and used Revo to make sure it's gone.

If I turn off flash and my other add-ons, I stop getting them. But uninstalling flash/reinstalling it hasn't solve the problem. Are you saying I should reinstalll them with my security off?

I can't remember when it started, but the odd thing is, it's happening on my other machine. It's also running firefox, flash, and norton. Could it be the new constant guard garbage?

You said in the first post...

'I've ran Norton a thousand times, and Spybot, etc..."

I told you in response 7....

"Spybot and AdAware are well known to have sometimes removed the WRONG things. "

"Both Spybot free and paid, and Norton products trial and paid, have at least one resident module !! "
