    I can't work out why this website freezes repeatedly while viewing this site and this site only. I get a dialog box entitled "unresponsive script" and the usual continue, stop script, etc options. I have to go into task manager and delete a programme called "plug in container for Firefox". This allows me to use the website for a few minutes before it all starts again.

    Any suggestions as to why?

    Remove flash player - Firefox does not like it! I was getting the same "unresponsive script" box on Ebay until I uninstalled Adobe Flash Player!

    I'm going to do things one at a time, so far I've refreshed Firefox. We'll see how that goes.

    Thanks both for your suggestions.

    Think it's fixed, but I had to use Ash's suggestion. I need Flash Player so couldn't remove that.

    Cheers,

    I had this issue on IE, very annoying so removed flash player plug in and everything is now perfect! Flash player seems to cause a lot of issues...

    I also have google chrome so use this for video, it has built in player and does not require flash:thumb:...
