I do not know if this is the right place for this problem or not, if it is NOT then could one of the Moderators please move it.
My problem I am posting about is: I get Script Errors on various websites. It does NOT happen all the time, but when it does happen it raises all kinds of havoc with my computer! For example just a few minutes ago I was trying to read an article on www.grit.com after I clicked from an email I received. The webpage I was on when it began:
I was on page 2 of the article and was scrolling down to read further when I started to receive the script error message. I clicked to stop the script. I started to read further down the page again, I again received the script error message. I again clicked to stop the script! I then went to click to go to the next page and I again received the same script error message! I again clicked to stop the script!! This time it froze my web browser! I tried to click a check mark for "Do not ask again" and clicked stop script! It froze the webpage! and my web-browser! I tried to click "debug script" and that froze my computer for a few seconds! SO I clicked: Ctrl +Alt+Delete it took about a minute to bring up the screen, I then clicked "cancel". I tried to close the web-browser but was unable to! I tried closing the web-page I was on and was unable to! I even tried to close the other Tabs that were open and was unable to! So I was forced to restart my computer!
This has been going on for a while. It affects several websites at various times. It happens when I am on Yahoo.com fantasy sports pages, it happens when I click on news articles on my Yahoo.com home page, even happens when I click on a news article or story on MSN/Hotmail home page, click on a news article on my AOL home page, occasionally it will happen on Facebook ESPN.com fantasy sports, and other webpages.
Java is up to date, Adobe is up to date, and all of my programs are up to date! The only thing that I can think of that might be causing this is an "add on" in Firefox that has been disabled due to vulnerability issues. that add on is: Java Deployment Toolkit 8.0.910.14 version 188.8.131.52
Here is the webpage on Firefox about the add-on:
Can anyone help me figure out why I keep getting these "Script Errors" and why they keep freezing my Web-Browser and my computer and how to fix it?
