When loading a new web page a smaller box will appear saying long running script.  You then have the option to stop script or let it run.  Why does this happen.  Can I stop it, and should I stop it?

Welcome,

It sounds like something running in the background. If you trust the site, then maybe. If it's a new site, no way. In either case you can stop it. If that prevents the site from displaying correctly and operating as expected, maybe you didn't really need to be there anyway.

Keep us posted

IMO...many websites have scripts buil into the framework of the webpage...see Scripts .  Like everything else, scripts can be benign or malicious...but to expect all scripts to be malicious is a little out there, IMO.

 

Like other web-page coding...scripts can be poorly written and inefficient and may cause problems on the webpage.  A cure for poor coding has not yet been found.

 

Every now and then, I get one of those messages and my response is always to kill the script.  My thought is...well, if the website makes it a pain for me to visit the site...I have little reason to let some arcane script run that may not reflect any meaningful webpage content that I am looking for.

So long as humans are involved I have to agree. Maybe AI will be able to help at some future date.

Stay well
