    Hi

    I use Firefox as my browser and often leave multiple forum tabs open.

    Lately I have been getting error boxes coming up saying something like 'unresponsive script" and 'badgeville' in a weblink. I then need to click on a box to stop the script or to wait. It only seems to happen on this webiste.

    I don't know what that means? I have been posting here 10 years +. These badges are a bit of a wank if you ask me.

    According to the badges this is your first question you have posted.

    ROFL… mate that one had me in fits. Totally agree. I thought I left stars, stamps and that rubbish at primary school.Suits the narcissist I suppose.

    All this rubbish down the sidelines absoluty $#@! me off. These pages are the slowest clunkiest pages on the entire net and I've got a fast connection. I can pull down media at between 600k – 1MB (and that's bytes not bits). Some days I wonder why I even bother here. The old site might have been an ugly old girl but it worked seamlessly.

    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.

    I'm no IT tech head but I've just started using google chrome and find it heaps better than Mozilla.

    Cheers

    I use Firefox, albeit on a Mac and haven't had issues that you describe Terry.

    Have you tried to clear the cache and/or cookies? Might or might not help.

    Cheers

    Yep, but no help. I leave the tabs open for hours sometimes and I guess something behind the scenes starts to time out or something.

    Chrome is must smoother for viewing this forum on. I do use chrome too, but for some reason I find firefox more convenient.

    re the badges, ROFL !

    At the risk of being a whinger, in all seriousness the new site does worry me because I think it conflicts with the key message Steve's trying to get across to people.

    If you take a look at what Steve leverages the site for (selling information products) and what he values (the sharing of knowledge about investing, and a passion for ensuring other people do well through the property investing vehicle), you'd think that the website should exhibit the same core values.  Accuracy, good use of language, reliable systems, and timeliness.  I don't think the site does that.  It's not really in line with what I have figured Steve's mission statement to be.

    A lot of things on this new site scream of having been built by someone offshore that does not speak English very well at all.  Some of the words being used are very strange decisions.  Pulled straight from a dictionary or something.  I also have trouble with Firefox, which is one of the major players in internet browsers, so it's not ideal the site keeps crashing out error messages in Firefox.  The refresh speeds are very concerning… I don't understand how it got signed off to replace the old site which had nothing wrong with it at all.

    An American perhaps?

    Its those marketing 'gurus'. $2500 for a course where you can learn the 10 ways to post a post, but only $500 if you sign up now. And as a bonus we will give you a valueless ebook valued a $299. Plus you will get, at no extra charge, another course for your partner on 'the 5 strategies to get a badge on the leaderboard".

    Somersoft is a good forum…

    I use a Mac but with no Firefox, Mozilla or Chrome, just Mac's standard Snow Leopard OS and have no problems at all. The website pages seem to load up quickly and I haven't had any problems what so ever.

    Terryw I usually open up 5 to 10 tabs at a time and sometimes leave these tabs open for hours, yet I haven't had any issues at all.

    I don't mind the Leaderboard and awards thingy, I just see it as a bit of harmless fun.

    Hi Terry,

    I used to get the same script error message – haven't seen since a couple of Mozilla upgrades ago.

    Like you I have PI Forum on screen for long periods of time.

    I must admit my IT knowledge is lacking so can't provide much assistance beyond comment above.

    Bugger – seems I spoke too soon.

    My other puter got the same error message today while I was using Mozilla.

    This problem won't go away so I have installed a little addon called Yes Script

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/yesscript/?src=api

    THis allows you to block scripts. Probably won't assist in keeping my points high but:

    About this Add-on

    YesScript lets you make a blacklist of sites that aren't allowed to run JavaScript. Use YesScript on sites that annoy you or hog your system resources. One click to the icon in the status bar turns scripts on or off for the current site.

    Unlike NoScript, YesScript does absolutely nothing to improve your security. I believe that Firefox is secure enough by default and that blocking all scripts by default is paranoia. YesScript strives to remove hassles from your browsing experience, rather than add them.
