I've noticed that over the last while (month or two), when browsing BC not logged in, "http://cdn.static.zdbb.net/js/walker-min.js:1" gets loaded, and does not function properly. This freezes the entire browser temporarily; eventually a prompt comes up asking if I'd like to stop the script. This issue doesn't occur when logged in on BC, and therefore I assume it is related to the advertisements (which aren't present when logged in). This issue does not appear to be on my end, as I've tested it under both Pale Moon and Mozilla Firefox on 2 different computers. I've posted here, because I'm not requesting support, I'm just reporting it.

Yes I'm experiencing the same issue since my subscription here, unless I use an extension called Ghostery

Your saying this is occurring offsite or only on BC?

Yes it's concerning BC it's the only one that freezes Firefox comparatively with the other web sites I frequently visit, but it seems that the problem disappeared now!

I've experienced the same problem numerous (> 50) times on Bleeping Computer on both my laptop and desktop computers (all running Firefox).  I suspect the problem lies with an advertisement because the undesirable behavior happens about ~40-60% after opening a BC link (typically 1-2 seconds after opening a link on BC)

 

I also perceive the behavior to be more prevalent when I'm not signed into BC (e.g. browsing, but not signed in on my account)...but don't quote me on that because I'm usually viewing the forum without being logged in.

 

Another point to keep in mind if you're trying to repro -- I typically open every link in a new tab or window (vs. left clicking links, forward, back, etc.)

Just wanted to pop-in and say this issue still happens for me even though I've updated Pale Moon and Mozilla Firefox on my main computer.
