Where are you and what are you doing when this happens? If you are browsing online then let us know which browser you are using and whether you have checked to see if it also happens on an alternative browser (to determine whether it is a browser issue).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Update your Firefox to the latest version 43.0.4 released today. If you still get the script error, see if anything from the following Mozilla article helps

If you still have the same problem after the suggestions at #3 then try IE for a bit. Just long enough to see if it happens on there too or whether the problem is only with Firefox.

Try the NoScript add-on.

To eliminate most of the script errors, I set Firefox to use private browsing as default.

Firefox Private Browsing:

You might not find it convenient and there is no certainty it will cure your issue. Plenty of folk (including me) run FF quite normally without script errors so something must be wrong.

Do you get this on any old webpages, this one for example?

I had this problem on multiple computers for months. I found this post https://forums.adobe.com/thread/134... made the changes, and it's finally fixed. No more script errors

I'm not the original poster but I'm interested. In terms of the two links you posted, which setting or settings do you think cured the script errors?

Derek, I accessed the second link, which showed the Global Storage Settings Panel. I clicked on the Website Storage Settings tab (second from the right) and changed the setting to None and Never Ask Again.

After I did that, I have not had any problems with Shockwave or Flash script freezing in Firefox.

Thanks for the info. Mine was set that way so maybe that's why I never see script errors.

Does this happen on any old website or is it just YouTube or ones with videos on them? Is there a particular URL (address) that gives you trouble - if so please paste it on here.

Have you tried running without add-ons?

If it is then OK, disable them one by one to find the culprit.

There is a possibility this is due to malware so run these three freebies in the order given (the first two are focussed on browser issues):

AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
Download the free version.
Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

Please copy/paste the logs on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
