Script Errors

Post  bobh on Wed Aug 07 2013, 23:22

Recently, when hitting the "Next topic" button, I've sometimes got an error pop-up saying that a script on the page wouldn't run, or something like that. I've usually been able to hit the "Don't run script" button in the error message and carry on, but this evening it crashed Firefox. grumpy 

Has anyone else had this? Obviously there's a work-round if I go "Back" then select the next topic, but since the button's there I'd like it to work! Wink

Oft times FireFox & Forumotion do not see eye to eye . . . There was a time when firefox simply didn't work with forumotion at all.
But if this is a recent thing you have been getting bob, perhaps we should all be taking cover for the next un announced change our hosts are about to unleash upon us in BETA format !!!

I am sorry that's not the answer you would have awaited, and maybe I am in error. Perhaps Wooster could be of some assistance. He has been of great help in the past with things like this left thumb up

Only thing I can think of is that you have an add-on (maybe an Ad Blocker?) that's causing the issue.
I tried them using NoScript, but that was ok.
If you run into the problem again, click on the orange Firefox tab on the top left, select Help and then Restart Firefox with Addons disabled and see if the problem still occurs.

Mines fine on the phone but if I access this site at work it always does it.

It could also be something to do with the icon images themselves.
For some reason they're stored all over the place instead of a folder within the site itself (where you'd normally expect to find them). I'm not 100% sure, but some security suites might see these as redirects..

i.e. Previous Topic icon is hosted on Photobucket: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
but Next Topic is hosted on Servimg: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I don't have any problems using the buttons in Firefox. Actually it's the first time I've used them!

Ah, I see - said the blind man - I used to "borrow" buttons and widgets from other forums as they looked better than the ones on the start-up skin here.
In the early days of the forum, I would 'hot-link' them, a practice I found out later that no only caused problems when the 'host' deleted them, but was also bandwidth stealing ! So I started saving them into photobucket and then adding them to the forum from there.

I am a wee bit wiser now - thanks to the advice from Wooster & others -, and save new ones now to the internal 'host' folder - servimg - .
There have been a few that slipped through the net - mainly because "if it ain't broke , don't fix it" - and I was unaware a problem existed.

I have now moved the arrow icon/buttons to servimg in an attempt to solve the issue you are encountering.
Please let me know if this is the case, and it has or has not worked bob left thumb up

Thanks for all the advice - I'll post if it happens again, or in a week or so if it doesn't.

Btw, I am using an adblocker - my so-called "broad"band here is so slow I try to minimise the amount of unnecessary stuff that gets downloaded.

And I just checked - I was on v22.0. Strange that I hadn't had a notification to update, but just one of life's many little mysteries I suppose.

I'm still getting the odd random error message about scripts. Now it seems to be just when I try to open certain posts. Not a big issue, tho'
