EG is becoming virtually unusable on my work machine.|
(Insert sarky comment about how I shouldn't be using EG at work, here.)
Every time I come to the main forum page, whether it's first visit, refreshing the page or coming out of a thread, IE hangs for a while, and then I get a popup saying...
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.
And a Yes / No to stop running the script.
Clicking Yes solves the issue, but as soon as I come out of a thread etc, it happens again. If the window popped up straight away it wouldn't be so bad, but you have to wait for between 10 & 20 seconds, every time.
May well be that the problem's at this end : IE 8 on a machine running Win XP Pro, but it's still a right royal pain.

I've been getting this as well.
I belive it conincided with the new Call of Duty video advert on the right of the page.
Make EG a subscription site & get rid of adverts!

This problem is still happening. In fact it's getting worse. I now get the script errors when opening up threads, not just at the main thread list.
I know it's probably something to do with the config of my work machine, which I have no control over, but sadly it's rendered EG unusable.

If you are using IE, im assuming its because you have to. In which case you probably cant install the plugins needed to stop the site from committing suicide every ten minutes.
Sorry, I know thats not very helpful..

I used to get a similar problem. Was able to install Chrome on my work PC (it doesn't seem to require an admin password) and it can handle EG, and other sites, much better.
