Hi Dave,
I use Firefox, and at least 3 or 4 times a day everything freezes up and nothing works and I get this message:

I use Firefox all of the time and have not experienced any problems.

I am using an Ubuntu operating system, which uses a different browser than the FF for windows.

Is it possible you need to update your Firefox browser ?
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Hi Lyn. No, my Firefox is up to date. The only way I can get going again is to close down and start over, or kill the script that is running.

Do you have any add-ons or extensions on Firefox.

Try disabling them briefly and see if that solves the problem.

I can't think of anything we have here on Garden.org that would cause this.

I run Adblock+ and have had no problems, so that isn't it.

Still better to try disabling the add-ons though in case there's some conflict that is different, just as a process of elimination. Add-ons are given as the potential cause for this problem on the Mozilla website.

Ok, I've disabled them and will let you know. It's normally later in the day when it starts happening. I'm guessing it could be Pinterest because one time Pinterest was the only thing running that I could see.

I also use Firefox and have not encountered this problem. Does your computer freeze up on other websites or only on this one? I had this freeze up problem a couple of years ago and it turned out to be the voltage regulator...at least when i removed it and then replaced with a new voltage regulator the freezing stopped.

I am online off and on all day with many sites and this is the only one where it happens. Disabling Pinterest may be the answer.

Clear out the cache, if all else fails delete FF and reinstall

Karen I had this issue a lot while on XP and would just hit the continue button. It also was happening on FF. I have just gotten a new computer and am on Windows 10 now and that has not happened yet. Crossing Fingers!

It hasn't happened yet today, but I'm on Windows 10 too. The continue button doesn't seem to work in this case.

I used to have that problem, but it disappeared a few Foxfire updates ago. When I did have the problem, I would have to restart the computer, but I have Windows 7 and I'm not sure Windows 10 offers that option. I remember people complaining about the impossibility of restarting when Windows 8 first came out.

I can still re-start the computer with Windows 10. It's just a pain, because then I have to go through all the passwords again. It hasn't happened yet today, so it may have been my Pinterest add-on which is disabled.

No problems at all with the Pinterest add on disabled. I put my Ad blocker back on and it's ok.
