how to stop Bon Echo warning unresponsive script
« on: February 06, 2009, 11:09:05 PM »
I have been encountering a warning in Bon Echo lately which told the that a script on the current website was unresponsive asking me if I wanted to stop or continue. That’s a pretty vague warning and I was puzzled at first about the cause of it. The strange thing was that the website seemed to have loaded completely and that the warning was displayed despite of this.

There are two possible causes for the error. It could be caused by a Bon Echo add-on or by a website which uses faulty JavaScript code. It’s actually pretty easy to discover the cause for the warning message. Users need to stop the script and access the Bon Echo Error Console. The last error message there should hint at the cause of the error.

Generally speaking it is more likely that an extension is the cause if you encounter the error on several different websites while a warning on the same website points to a faulty JavaScript on that website.
If you suspect that a script just needs a few more seconds to run you need to edit a setting in the Bon Echo config. Type about:config in the address bar and filter for the string dom.max_script_run_time. The default setting is 20 (seconds), just add a few more, raise it to 25 for instance.
