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 script 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 script process. If we are not so patient, we can stop the script by pressing stop script button. Reason for getting "Unresponsive Script" error message is the long time taken by the script to execute than the expected time set in the Firefox configuration.
