Anybody else getting a message that a script has stopped running when trying to load pages??? I got it when I clicked "go advanced" on my August Exercise Challenge post in the SBD forum and again when I tried to go to the 300+ forum. This site is the ONLY one giving me errors, so it doesn't seem to be on my end.

***EDIT*** On a side note, it locks up my entire computer when this happens. Not just the internet...I was at work and it locked up my CAD system as well.

yes, me too. but it only seems to be happening at work on IE, not at home where I use Firefox (unfortunately, we can't install a new browser and I don't think it will go over too well if my "business necessity" is that I need to be able to read 3FC! lol!)

It works on 2 out of 3 computers I use- the third is the only one I use IE on- so that might be what it is.

I'm not experiencing any errors. I'm using Firefox on a Mac.

I see that two of you mentioned it only happens when using IE. Are the rest of you using IE or do you also experience it on other browsers?

Also, did you happen to notice if the same ad appears when this happens? Sometimes it can be narrowed down to bad ad code.

Let's get as much info as we can and we'll pass it to tech :)

Ok let me see if i can explain this :D My nephew helped me cause that's that was happening to me on JUST this site also.
There is a compatibility button,next to the refresh button up at the top of the page.I had clicked that once by mistake and he said that's what was causing that "script" message to keep coming up.Once i clicked the compatibility bottom off..I haven't had any problems.

I was having script errors constantly on this site only the last few days too, very frustrating! Thank you Onami, the compatability button clicked off seems to have fixed my problem. Strange that we all just happen to have clicked that button on recently? I was ready to throw in the 3FC towel (yeah right, who am I kidding?)

Stepping Out
09-03-2011, 09:09 PM
I wasn't even able to access 3 FC! The "script error" prompt would come up, and the screen would freeze. One of your sidebar ads must be triggering the problem. I tried the "compatibility view" feature, and it doesn't work :mad:

Suzanne 3FC
09-03-2011, 09:28 PM
I'm very sorry that this problem is persisting. I've passed it on to the higher-ups to take a look at. It is the holiday weekend so I doubt we'll hear anything right away, but rest assured that it will be looked at.

Thanks :)

April Snow
09-03-2011, 09:37 PM
I have the issue using an old version of IE that doesn't even have the compatibility button, so it does seem like it's something else going on.

Thanks Suzanne for getting the tech people to look into it!

I posted yesterday that the compatibility button unclicked helped with not getting script error messages, but I am still having loading issues, screen freezes and I have to reload or restart. It is only happening on this site and not all the time, which leads me to believe it is an ad issue. I am using IE 8 and have been having the issue since about Thursday or Friday. Sometimes I too am unable to even get on the site, but I persist because I am addicted to this site and eventually am able to get in. I have heard that those using Firefox are not having issues but don't want to change my browser, but that may help others.

Suzanne 3FC
09-05-2011, 03:08 PM
I think the IE compatibility button only helped temporarily.

I know everyone must make the choices that are best for them, and in some cases the choice is made for them such as those that access us from work. But if you have a choice and are open to the idea, using a browser such as Firefox is a great option.

Firefox doesn't REPLACE IE so you can still use IE any time you want. It's just an additional browser you can choose to use when you want. It's much faster, safer, and more efficient than IE so most people that try it stick with it.

Google Chrome is also good.

Before posting: Since this does appear to be an Internet Explorer issue, it would probably help tech pin it down if everyone could tell us which version of IE you have.

Also, if possible, please let us know which ad banners appear on the page when this problem happens in case it can be tracked down to a bad ad. Since the problem seems to have started on Sept 1, it's possible it could be a new ad campaign causing this problem.

Thanks!!

I'm using version 8. This time I got a slow script error message. At the time, Fiber Choice was in the ad banner.

I have the same issue when I'm at the office (unfortunately, we have to use IE). We have IE 7. I didn't notice the banner because my screen didn't load the whole way ... it causes my comp to freeze up every time.

I use mozilla firefox at home and never have any issues with it.

When it happened to me it was at work and, as several of you mentioned, IE is my only choice there. At home I only use Firefox and, for what it's worth, I'm having no problems w/ the site from home. ;) Not sure what version of IE we have at work...and I don't know what the ads were either. If it happens again, I'll pay attention to the ad and let you know. ;) Thanks for having everyone look into.

pamatga
09-08-2011, 07:55 PM
I am using IE8 and I will get a pop up box that asks if I want to continue to use this script as it is causing IE to perform slowly then freezes up and I have to reboot my computer entirely. No ads were showing at the time.

OnaMi
09-08-2011, 08:03 PM
It seems to only happen when the Invisalign ad is showing on my Computer.Was able to use this site all day w/o seeing the error message and just now,the Invisalign ad shows up and the script error re-appears.

It didnít happen all weekend, but it has happened twice tonight. I get a box that says:

Stop running this script? A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.

In the box, it gives me an option to click YES or NO. Even if I click yes, my computer locks up. I end having to go to Task Manager to end the program.

Most of last night, as I tried to get on from time to time, the 3FC page just kept freezing up...again...

then at the bottom it says IE Explorer is trying to locate the page...3FC is not responding....same as before....this happens a lot....

not a problem on anything else...FB...ESPN...not one other site for me.

I saw that Suzanne, the 3FC administrator was on here making some inqueries last week but has anyone found out any more?

It has been happening to me for a few days. I do not desire to change my browser as this is only happening on 3FC and I don't like to run a lot of different browsers on one computer. This did happen here to me months ago and cleared up. It is not on my end. No worries, just sayin' ... :)

glynne
12-22-2011, 09:21 AM
I have had the problem from time to time, but not very often. But in the last few days, several times during a few minutes as I try over and over to use 3FC (:o sorry ~ I'm addicted ~ LOL). I have IE ~ not sure what version. Didn't know to pay attention to the adds, but this morning when I got the script error message ~ the add was for Migraine Centers of America.

Amarantha2
12-22-2011, 10:16 AM
Thanks to everyone who shared about the recent problems. Lol, I always think it is only me if no one else is having a problem.

I have been stopping the script from running instantly and that seems to have cleared it up for now.

I also am addicted to 3FC, especially at this point in my journey, but I just want to use the browser I like, which is IE.

Amarantha2
12-22-2011, 08:35 PM
You know, you are right. If that ad is not there on the right, that is when either the script error occurs or the screen locks on the site. Thanks!!! :)

Re the add-ons. I am afraid to try that as I really need all those add-ons and probably would mess up the computer trying to do that. Thanks for posting it, though. Might be an option.

I am not too computer savvy. But I did upgrade my browser.
And it took me about 3 hours to figure it all out.
That did not help at all. I get more script errors now.

Doing the add-ons, then undoing them is just too much for me.

I am looking for another diet site without so many ads, where I won't have the problems. It's too bad I have these problems, as I really like this site.
But I am just too frustrated to continue anymore.

Amarantha2
12-24-2011, 07:25 PM
Hmmm. I found some advice on microsoft.com to click "no" when script errors happen on IE. I had been clicking "yes" to stop it from running, but all that happens is it stalls the 3FC page and I can't shut it down and so I have to completely shut down my computer.

So just now I clicked "no" when the error popped up (it has been continuous for about a week) and the page stopped its stalling act.

I'll browse some more and try it again when it pops up.

I really love this site, wish this would stop happening.

Amarantha2
12-24-2011, 07:39 PM
Woot! That seems to work. I've been on here a few minutes and moved about the site and posted and nearly every time I click to open a thread the script thingie pops up and I click "no" and in a second the page stops trying to lock and becomes responsive.

I hope this is the answer for moi! :)

12-25-2011, 08:07 PM
Thanks Carly! I will try that. I am totally sure the problem is on this site, maybe coming from just one ad. Can't say.

I logged on awhile ago and it popped up and I clicked no but it kept popping up over and over and I kept clicking no, over and over. It did not lock the screen though but it would not stop.

I will find somewhere to report this because maybe the thread hasn't been seen with the holiday and a lot of us are being affected. Maybe there is an easy solution that we don't know about.

Violet73
12-26-2011, 03:03 PM
It's becoming really annoying and it's actually making me not come to this site as often. Every time I click on something new on this site I get the script error. This does not happen on any other site. Can the moderators not fix this? I don't want to have to use Firefox just for this site as Firefox slows down my computer for some reason. ugh...

I've had this trouble for a few months now. I don't get the script error, my computer just freezes, but I do get a window that tells me that '3 Fat Chicks isn't responding'. It only happens on Chicks. The text usually loads quickly, so I believe its the animated ads, usually the ones on the right of the screen.

Violet - Internet Brands, a company which owns a large number of forums and websites, including FitDay, CarsDirect, ApartmentRatings.com, and others, owns 3FC and has for some time. The moderators and admins still manage the boards on a day to day basis, keep the spam out, etc. Again, this change isn't new, and likely, the forum is somewhat safer from viruses now that the infrastructure is managed by a larger organization.

Another person with the script error. I tried the add-on trick, but it's still giving me errors. At least it's not freezing up as much as it was. I do hope the company fixes it sooner rather than later (although it's been going on for a while now). If there is anything we can do to put pressure on Internet Brands, please let us know.

I haven't heard anything from tech, but I would like to toss out another vote for Firefox :)

I know some people are resistant to use a different browser. And based on some private conversations with a few members, it seems that there's some confusion about using a different browser for the first time.

Firefox will not replace IE so you don't have to give anything up. It is an alternate browser you can choose to launch from time to time as you wish. Most people simply choose never to go back to IE, though, once they realize that their entire internet browsing experience is faster, more efficient, safer, and error free.

Internet Explorer is notoriously buggy, so sometimes the script errors are not actually errors in coding, but simply design flaws in IE. I'm not suggesting that is what is happening today, as I don't have a clue what is causing the problem. I don't even experience it because I use Firefox :)

I sent a note to Internet Brands. The reply (actually there were two replies) sounded as if they didn't realize there's an issue. One response said "We are currently investigating the issue and will fix it immediately." I can tell that hasn't happened, but it was nice of them to reply. I've been a member of 3FC for almost a decade and shouldn't have to change my browser to view a website. I've designed websites--a website should be accessible to all browsers.

I was resistent about using another browser, but missed being able to interact with my group of friends. Several of them were using Firefox and helped others of us know how to get it/use it. So, with their help and the help of my DH, I now have added Firefox and am once again able to enjoy 3FC. I still use IE for all the other stuff, as I am used to it, but sure am glad to be able to come here once more and I don't miss the frustration I was having.

Thanks,

Paul

mandalinn82
12-29-2011, 08:24 PM
Paul,

I was able to replicate in IE only, both last night and this morning. I use Firefox normally, but wanted to try to do some troubleshooting.

Sometimes when I loaded a page, not every time, the ad on the side bar would fail to load. When that occurred, invariably, I'd get the same script error. Because the ad didn't load, I can't point you to which ad it was, but I can say with a fair amount of certainty that it WAS an ad causing the issue.

I can browse for an hour without hitting the problem, with ads loading just fine, then start hitting it every time I navigate to another page (which is also consistent with an ad-based problem - I'll see the same 5 ads for a time period while looking around the boards, then switch to another set).

I also wonder if this ad is in and out of 3FCs rotation, as the problem (and posts in this thread) seemed to spike in Sept and then again in Dec. I didn't see many reports of this issue Oct-Nov, so maybe the ad in question wasn't being rotated in, or we've hit another ad with the same error.

I seem to have the most problems when the top ad is Blue Cross/Blue Shield. When I see that one appear I just give up. I feel the problem is the most animated ads, also, the ones that keep changing even after the text is loaded.

It had been behaving well during the day. I see problems occur from about 3 pm eastern thru midnite. NEver in the mornings or daytime. It started up again today as I was trying to post a quick reply. Lost my reply :( Was on the I'm New Here post, in case that matters.

I downloaded Firefox - works like a charm. Everything loads quickly.

I only have the problem at work when I am using IE. If I had the option to use Firefox there, I would, as it is my preferred browser and has been for years.

Thanks for having it looked into. :)

I use the Safari browser. Don't get a script error but the browser freezes up for minutes at a time and it usually occurs associated with an ad not fully loading.

This morning it was working fine until I went to post something and wanted to go to the advanced posting screen from the quick post screen. Boom .... dead in the water.

This is getting old. It's been at least a month since this stuff started to occur.

Believe me ... this problem has been reported to IB, our website owners. In the meantime, switching to Firefox seems to be the solution.

Now with Chrome I'm getting the "Oh Snap!" errors. I know that's a Chrome thing, but it doesn't happen on any other site.

..........and so then even Chrome started TAUNTING me with hip, cool language, I decided it must be time to grow a long bushy tail and head over to Firefox. I'll let you know how it goes!

I use IE and didn't have much trouble yesterday. Today I got the script error, but it didn't freeze up the browser to the point where I can't even close it (which it normally does).

Has been really bad the past week, could not even get on, box kept popping up, instantly locked computer!

I do not desire to switch to Foxfire, because IE is the more standard browser and works best for me.

But not meanin' to be cranky and Happy New Year to all! Woot!

ETA: Have been posting and reading the site, no problems! Woot again

I'm hesitent to post this because I don't want to jinx it:dizzy:, but Chicks has worked much better these past few days. Still loads very slowly, but I haven't had the 'stalling/locking' problems in the past few days. The last stalling problem was with a rightside ad for a new TV show called 'something of Lies" which just kept shifting pictues, but I haven't seen it since.

Popped back on to see if my luck holds. No box is popping up saying there is a script error and locking my computer.

I don't want to jinx it either.

I am still using IE and intend to continue doing so, so maybe the techs were able to fix that, bless them.

Woot!

the weekend everything was fine but today it took me 8 stalls just to get the first page to load.

Mostly it was that dreaded top Blue Cross Blue Sheild ad again.

I still get the script error. I do not want to go to Firefox because I've been satisfied.
A friend gets frozen out - not even a script error.
Any time table on when this might be fixed?

And I've been able to get in today with no issues for the first time in a long time (using IE). Weird!!

Yesterday and today are pretty good, but I each morning I've had a stall both related to the Blue Cross Blue Sheild ads, whatever is on the right side of the screen never loads.

I've been using google chrome the last couple of days and haven't had a problem. It's been a little slow at times, but no lock ups.
My IE has been locking up off and on. Really can no one figure this out???

I finally started using the Firefox and have not had any trouble. I would rather have stayed with IE, but it was endless frustration, and I missed being able to come here too much.

Froze on IE again for me tonight...

switched to Firefox and it's been fine.

FF has been fine. I've finally given up on IE when I noticed a bug in my BodyBugg application - food logging. Switched to FF to run the application and it worked perfectly. So yeah, IE is full of glitches, it's really not just this site. I think it may not be finely tuned or sophisticated enough to run some of the graphics. I know for sure it could not handle the meal entry on BodyBugg and kept hanging up on a previous meal even when I tried to move on to the next meal. So, if you have any other issues, even small, on other programs that you use, consider it may also be related to IE.

So I got my Hubby to download Firefox. It does work faster but I have another problem now. I'm vision impaired so I can't read 'normal' print, and we can't figure out how to enlarge the print size like I can on IE.

Any suggestions???

glynne

Hi Penguin ~ I had that trouble at first too ~ then my friend helped me to get the letters bigger ~ here is what she told me: two ways to make the print larger: you can go up to the top, click view, click zoom, and increase.... or you can hit the control (ctrl) button at the same time you hit the + button to increase.

I did the ctrl key and the + key and kept poking it until I got it as big as I wanted. Nice ~ and the size I chose kept that same every time I go back in ~ I didn't have to readjust every time. Hope this helps.

We downloaded FF and it worked fine for 3 months but then this past week the computer started to slow again. Hubby checked and found that our WiFi card was slow {?} and installed another card in the USB. This really sped everything up including IE. The 'first unread' option by the thread titles works again on 3FC and its been a year+ since that worked.

My beef with FF is that it worked great on 3FC but was slower on the other forums/sites I frequent so I had FF for one site but used IE for everything else.

Hope this info helps someone else!

For me the script error ended a couple of weeks ago, not sure of date. I was able to come back on 3FC (knock on wood) and post as usual, plus enjoy reading the forum. I don't post here every day but the site means a lot to me.

I didn't do anything. I have IE and like it and never even entertained changing to FF, which is just not a browser I would use for my purposes. I also do not use two browsers on one computer as for me it causes problems.

I only experienced the script error on this site and assume the owners fixed it and I thank them! But for me it had nothing to do with IE.

Huzzah, nice to have it working again! :)

I got fed up with IE for constant locking up, and switched to Google Chrome last week. NO lockups, and NO script errors, either. ~~knock on wood~~
