Unresponsive Script- A Script On This Page May be Busy,It May Have Stopped Responding

For the last few days I have been getting one error message on Firefox while browsing. The error message is A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. There are two buttons on the error message, continue and stop script. If we press continue button, Firefox start wait for the completion of the process. If we are not so patient, we can stop the code by pressing the second button. Reason for getting "Unresponsive Script" error message is the long time taken by it to execute than the expected time set in the Firefox configuration.

Solution

To solve the unresponsive process error, we should increase the maximum time Firefox wait to declare a code unresponsive. It is because sometimes Mozilla decide a particular program is not responding before completing its process due to the lower time set to decide whether a process is working or not. To do this follow the steps below.

  1. Start Firefox

  2. Type about:config in Address bar and press enter

  3. Click on I'll be careful, I promise!

  4. Double click on dom.max_script_run_time
    A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

  5. Enter maximum  run time 25 and click OK
By increasing the maximum run time, we can avoid most unresponsive code error messages. Each process will get enough time to start work normally before generating alert to stop it.  Just like this, if you are looking for different methods to clear cookies, follow the link below.

As you can see by increasing the time to decide whether a process is unresponsive, we can fix unresponsive code issues. If you are looking for a way to find previously saved passwords and usernames from Firefox browser click on the link below.
