I keep receiving unresponsive script errors

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.6 GHz / 511 MB

I keep receiving unresponsive script errors, especially when on Gmail. I use Mozilla Firefox 9.0.1. Here are some that I have received in the last 3 days:

When I attempt to CLEAR RECENT HISTORY, I ALWAYS have an unresponsive script error Script: chrome://global/content/bindings/browser.xml:0
Script: resource:///components/nsPlacesExpiration.js:741

The error pops a lot on GMAIL:
Script: chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml:0
Script: resource://gre/modules/XPCOMUtils.jsm:327
Script: resource:///components/nsPrompter.js:68
Script: resource:///components/nsHandlerService.js:432
Script: resource:///components/nsBlocklistService.js:756
Script: resource:///components/nsBlocklistService.js:727

Script: chrome://browser/content/browser.js:10942
Script: http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/rsrc.php...

If anyone can help me get rid of these unresponsive script errors I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!!

Your using Mozilla and your getting a Chrome error? Wow.. maybe it was installed and set as the default browser and an error happened.

Did you have google chrome at some point? Or do you have a toolbar of it installed?

I don't believe I have ever installed anything with Google Chrome.

you probably need the experiment, start with anything java. try enabling Java Quick Starter, If that doesnt work disable it and try disabling the java plugins.

The only thing I can think of is its a virus that is not working correctly.. you get this a lot with browser spyware.

Try this.. download Spybot - Search and Destroy and update it and run it. I have seen cases where script errors are caused by malfunctioning viruses, so maybe we can explore that possibility? Plus the fact you said your computer is slow because of it kind of supports this theory.

I ran Spybot and it found nothing.

Wow, ummm.. okay..

The only other thing I can think of that might be causing this is registry issues. Do you have Registry Mechanic?

Why not just try re-installing Firefox?

Sorry for the delayed response, been out of town.

It's a program unfortunately you have to buy, but it's worth the $20 to have it anyway. You can find it off of the website download.com

RMT2 also has a point there, did you try re-installing Firefox? I know they have come out with tons of updates recently.. this could be something as simple as a browser plug in problem.

Are all of your plugins up to date?
1. Click on the Firefox Button and click on "Add-Ons".
1. Click Tools then click "Add-Ons".
2. Click on the "Plugins" tab on the left.
3. Click on the link at the top that says "Check to see if your plugins are up to date."
