    To include its latest version.
    There are a few sites that have forums where pictures are automatically re-sized if they are over a certain limit. If the picture goes over the sites limit I get this message:

    Slow script
    Safari is no longer responding because of a script on the webpage "Topic - Website" (Page). Do you want to stop running the script, or let it continue?


    If I hit the Stop Load Button in time I won’t be kicked out of the forum and have to logon again. When the Slow Script message shows up I hit the Yes, Stop Running Button. There are now literally hundreds of tiny and flat messages showing the dimensions of the picture that was posted and is now junk. Somewhere at the bottom of all those useless sheets are the pictures in their original size. If I’m lucky and fast enough on the draw I haven’t been kicked off.

    I usually use Firefox to go to those sites. For surfing the Web I use Safari because Safari is just plain smoother surfing.

    But what can I do about the Slow Script error? And just what IS this Slow Script Error anyway? Is it Site Specific Based – 3 different sites do this – or is it something that Safari just can’t handle?

    Oh, yeah, I'm using Firefox 3.5 right now. I thought you'd like to know.;)

    You you link me/us so I can see that? I haven't had that issue on the forums I go to. Could just be me.

    There are literally hundreds of lines of this garbage. This is only the top most. If you hit that error everything freezes up. All you can do is watch the spinning ball and control where it goes. I had to use a Force Quit to stop it. Even then it took a while to stop. There are only a few sites that cause it, but that garbage can mess things up BAD.

    Just imagine the only way to stop it is to shut Safari off completely, and on another Tab is/are address(s) you badly need for Business, School or Home, and closing the Tab will make you lose an address you spent a lot time and effort finding. The ghost of Irwin Allen is smirking at you.
