    Re: Freezing firefox

    No java, no js, no adons, no plugins. But there are stupid script errors like: resource://gre/modules/XPCOMUtils.jsm not responding. Question: Why is it even running and how to eliminate any such chrome or other stuff. Google seems to be living inside firefox in many ways. I prefer to eliminate any scripts that collects user info and sends to Google or any other place including Ubuntu. Problem is similar to this: http://www.computing.net/answers/win...rs/199045.html but this happens with linux. There seem to be hidden addons or plugins or other programs which run without user approval.

    If you have used the method that Wacky_Sung showed to block scripts, then you have blocked ALL scripts. That will break many many web pages. IMO NoScripts is better because you can choose to allow some scripts so that you can actually get stuff accomplished on the web. But that's strictly personal preference.

    Maybe the reason resource://gre/modules/XPCOMUtils.jsm isn't responding is because you disabled scripts?
