    I think it's the adverts. Since we disabled the adverts, we get far fewer problems - but the whole site 'hangs' at least once every time either of us accesses it.

    Its a real pain and must be easy to sort as doesn't happen on other sites.

    I agree about adverts. I use Adblock Plus in Firefox and never have any problems.

    I get the same problem. How do you disable adverts?

    I suspect it is something the site owner needs to sort when 3 people agree there is an issue within 15 minutes.How do I contact them please?

    Never had a screen freeze here and like GJH I use Firefox and have ABP enabled all the time.

    Google Adblock Plus and install the plug-in for the browser you use.
    You just send a PM to @Jim :)

    I also use "Adblock plus" and Firefox, but I didn't have problems with "Adblock" and Google's Chrome either.

    When I went back to Win 8 and stepped up again to 10 I found out just how annoying the adverts are but reinstalled AD+ and good as gold again.

    The second he starts his RV's engine this happens :eek:

    I always advocate AdBlockers, however I do disable it on sites I want to support as this is where a lot of income comes from for quite a few site owners.

    I thought remote ads were disabled once you subscribed to be honest?

    Me neither. I am guessing that it is more likely to be browser related though.
    I occasionally find a site where I get script errors. I switch from FireFox to Chrome and they all go away. Chrome does seem to have better performance but I don't trust google.

    My firefox is extremely well locked down. It has NoScript, uBlock Origin plus a custom hosts file. My Chrome is naked.

    Yes. Windows 7 & Firefox here.

    They seem to come in waves. Everything is fine for weeks & then several days of frequent script errors, then all fine again. Of the options offered, clicking 'Stop script' seems to give the fastest return to action.

    I don't use Adblocker, because @Jim gets part of his income from displaying the ads. If we all block them, he doesn't get the income & he has to put the subs up to compensate. I long ago (think old technology newspapers & magazines) developed advert blindness. I might be tempted to block them while using a bandwidth limited connection & certainly will be very tempted if the script error problem gets much worse.

    I haven't investigated to see if the script(s) in question originate from this site or from the site serving the adverts. I'll do that if @Jim or @Gromett would find it helpful in troubleshooting.

    I don't have any script errors with Motorhome Fun ever...

    Mind you, I don't even know what a script error is so I wouldn't, would I?

    Are they anything to do with the Bible?

    I think, although I'm happy to be corrected, that you won't get script errors if you access the site, or any other site come to that, via a mobile device. As far as I know the page just won't load at all rather than partially load and give you an error.

    I don't know whether something about OS X/Safari is the same. I don't recall the last time I saw one on anywhere.
