Subject: Tech: 'Long running script?'
From: Don Firth
Date: 07 Jul 13 - 02:43 PM

Although I have seen it a number of times before, within the past few weeks, when I try to read a thread on Mudcat (or sometimes when I first access Mudcat itself), the page freezes, then after several seconds (sometimes many, many seconds), a box appears at the bottom of my screen that says,
"Mudcat.org is not responding due to a long running script."
This message is followed by a box within the box, in which it says, "Stop script." If I click on this, some seconds later, I can begin to scroll down the page. Otherwise, it will sometimes just sit there.

If I'm trying to access a thread with several pages, this can happen a couple of times before I can get to the posts I'm looking for.

Is this Mudcat? Or is it me?

I rarely have this problem on other web sites.

It may well be a script (indirectly) executed by the "2345" object now embedded in Mudcat for unknown reasons. If it runs for a long time, it has a lot to do, probably not what you like to be done. You can tell your browser not to execute any scripts, or try to block 2345 as described in the other thread.

Not necessarily the iframe script. I have begun seeing this at msnbc every time I open it, where it's apparently the javascript that loads the 5 or 6 completely useless "photoblog" images on the front pages for the:

http://www.nbcnews.com/

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3032525/ns/us_news/

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/3032507/ns/world_news/

The script means that it takes 40 to 105 seconds before the page will scroll to let you see anything but the top of the page, and more than half the times when I click the "stop script" it crashes the browser completely, and I have to start over. If I just try to close the tab before the script finishes, it usually means IE crashes and restarts, but usually recovers all the other tabs.

I've only seen the "explanation" if I try to scroll before the script finishes, as a "slide up" at the bottom of the page.

This "new feature" appeared at about the same time that ALL OF THE subpages, except those three, on the top bar at the three pages linked were converted to "blog format" completely useless for anyone not enamored with the "new Win8" display styling, apparently to disguise their admission that they have no news worth reading, and you should be happy with lots of pictures. (The "breaking news" feature at msnbcnonews currently includes several stories more than three months old, indicating there's no new news that they've heard about.)

On the msnbc sites, it appears to be all jscript stuff that's the hangup. I didn't find any iframe usage the last time I looked at their 45 page "view source," and there were no obvious links to Chinese partners.

Microsoft has deprecated Java usage, and with default settings may require that the Java applet be downloaded "temporarily" for sites that require it and deleted when you leave. Although I had installed (and turned off) Java, it no longer appears in "add ons" in my IE.

Well... I have clicked a lot of ads to support Mudcat but after this last week or so I am simply tired of waiting for Mudcat to load the ads. Been a rather supportive member of Mudcat over a dozen years with outright donations and bidding in the auction and even clicking on the ads but, as I said, whatever happened since Mudcat was down for a bit in the past short while... I CANNOT take this any longer.

I use Internet Explorer. What ad blocker should I try?

Thanks.

There is a simple browser called OffByOne. It is a free, fast download and is perfect for Mudcat. No popups, no ads and no interminable waits for a page to load. Try it..

I get it sometimes when I try to open a news item on my cable home page.

I stop and start over and the problem disappears. I didn't really want that item anyway.

Don't want no "simple" browsers. IE usually works, and change might give my other programs fits.

Tried AdBlock at the suggestion of a Mudcat bud... no work. Unless... hmmm... close all browser windows and try again. We'll see.
