…You can fix unresponsive scripts?

Firefox Unresponsive Script

Whenever I use my RSS reader (NetNewsWire) to read Digg and then open tabs for the interesting sounding stories in the background in Firefox, I’m always greeted with an “Unresponsive Script” warning.

Fortunately, the error is just a timing issue, and if you’ve been receiving the same error, then the fix is an easy one:

  1. Type about:config into Firefox’s address bar.
  2. Filter down to the value for dom.max_script_run_time.
  3. Change the value to something higher than the default.

Yes, it’s that easy; and you’ll soon have uninterrupted browsing of your favorite social bookmarking site.

…Firefox can be tweaked?


One thing that makes Firefox so great is its customizability. Lifehacker has put together a nice little tutorial for changing values and tweaking the little known and littler used about:config settings. It looks daunting at first, but by following the guide, you can’t stray too far off course, and soon you’ll find yourself tweaking with ease (doesn’t that just sound illegal). Give it a try, you’ll be glad you did.
