From manual page:
For virtually every page in the documentation when the page loads I have to wait 20-25 seconds. The browser then shows an unresponsive script message with the line: Script: . I then hit stop script and the page works fine. 

A very similar problem occurs in IE8.

This happens on every page. It has been happening since you released the new web theme (2013-11-20).

I am using not a mirror

Is there a way to get a backtrace to see which event is being executed?
It could be the #anchor fix, "scroll to top" script, the elephpants, ... anything really

This bug specifically states Firefox 9; in the Firefox world this is *sorely* outdated. I have confirmed that Firefox versions 23-26 on OS X work correctly. I'm not sure that we've defined which browser versions we support; if we have I am not aware of it and have working under the premise of 'modern' browsers.

I agree FF 9 is out of date and so is IE8. I do freelance software development and I find I have less forward compatibility issues than backword.

two notes: I followed the page load in the console and consistently go this message: 
[16:23:34.351] uncaught exception: [Exception... "Persistent storage maximum size reached"  code: "1014" nsresult: "0x805303f6 (NS_ERROR_DOM_QUOTA_REACHED)"  location: " Line: 251"]

Also (it might be related) I notice that sometimes the search function can't find anything ($_SESSION, global variables, datetime object). Sometimes I have it won't work for a while during the day and then suddenly it find any of these things. This just happened again ta 4:28 EST. I mention it because I get the same Persistent Storage error message.

I realize that I am using an old browser and I appreciate the quick response. So if you want to close this I will understand.

After thinking about this a bit more I have decided to close this issue as a Won't Fix. Firefox 9.0 is really old. We may support other older browser versions such as IE 8 (undecided) but I don't think we'll support old Firefox versions.
