Pale Moon in Linux having problems with script on weather.com

Unread postby Phoenix555 » Sun, 08 Jul 2018, 12:32

Both version Palemoon 27.9.3 and version Palemoon 28 beta have issues with weather.com. The site freezes upon initial load and then throws up a busy script error message. This happens every single time I load the site. My system is running Manjaro Linux 64 bit 17.1.11 Kernel 4.14.53-1 with 6 gigs of Memory and a dual core AMD Athlon II dual core processor. This is the only site I have a problem with.

Confirmed some script is being really heavy on that website - long delays and almost-hangs on Windows as well.

Blocking scripts from polyfill.io might help.
See here.

It's a serious issue - I've sent them a message about it.

Thanks for your help, I blocked the polyfill page in the hosts file. It seems like it helped alleviate the hang up for now.
