Subject: RE: Tech: Ads have knackered my browser
I've had the flutter on Firefox, too.

If the scripts on Mudcat damage ANY browser, of any age on any platform, they're malware. I have seen enough of this blame-the-victim bullshit from incompetent, arrogant dimwit programmers over the years to recognize a feeble excuse when I see one.

Test what kind of browser you're serving the code to, and unless you know for sure that that browser will interpret your code the way you intend, DON'T serve it. You get all the data you need in the HTTP request that opens a new thread.
