    Default Bad Script Causes Web Browser To Crash

    I have been having this problem the past couple of days. Whenever I try and list something, I select the category without issue. However when I go to select the sub-category, the list doesn't drop down and after a while a message comes up saying that there is an unresponsive script. When I try to end it everything freezes and I wind up having to close the browser.

    Between this and issues with my image/template hosting service, I have had a very hard time getting any new items listed.

    I have also been having problems with slow running scripts recently, not on eBid, but on other sites. This started happening along with other problems following the latest windowz 10 downgrade. Which has transformed my fairly fast 2 year old machine into an old knacker overnight.

    My desktop is currently running Windows 7 Pro. I don't think the problem is with any of my hardware or software since outside of eBid everything else is in working order.

    You could try using a different browser. Chrome, Firefox and others sometimes slow down after a while, perhaps because they are holding so much cache.
    Deleting cache and installing latest version can help if don't mind losing saved passwords

    Now that you have revealed your OS, how about revealing what browser you are using. Then an attempt can be made to duplicate the problem under the same conditions.

    Under Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1 and Firefox 54.0 64-bit it works fine for me.

    The suggestion to clear your browser cache is always a good first step as it can hang on to old outdated scripts. If that fails to improve things then try temporarily disabling any browser add-ons (start browser in safe mode) to see if one of those is causing a conflict.

    I am currently using Mozilla Firefox. I can't find where it says what version it is, but it should be the latest. It updated a few days ago.

    I cleared the browser cache. It still crashed. Something interesting I found out though. I tried selecting sub-categories in other categories, and those worked without crashing. Some of them loaded slower than others and more so than I remember, but they loaded. I seem to be having this problem solely when selecting a sub-category in Collectibles.

    Here is the window that pops up whenever I try to select a sub-category under collectibles. Sometimes it will fill with black as it is loading. When I try and get it to stop the script, that's when it begins to crash.

    Can you let us know the browser you are using. Does the same thing happen in other browsers?

    Which category are you using? Is this listing from new or reposting an item?

    Anyone else having the same problem when trying to select a subcategory on the listing form?

    Thx,

    I am currently using Mozilla Firefox as my primary browser. I tried it in Internet Explorer and it worked fine there. Selecting other subcategories in Firefox has worked fine as well. I only seem to be having a problem with subcategories in the collectibles category.

    It is under the collectibles category, and it is for listing a new item.
