Quote from: fred999 on October 25, 2011, 01:52:14 PMSometimes when I go to a web site, my pc seems to hang, and then after some minutes Windows pops a message saying "a script is running, do you wish to terminate it?" and of course I respond yes and then I can proceed with whatever.
QuoteDoes PL work on restraining these scripts?
QuoteIf it does lower the priority of the script, does that mean the script might run forever, since there will never be an opportunity for me to cancel it, since Windows won't have the need to send me a popup?

The foreground application is the one which has the keyboard and mouse focus. So, if you don't click away, or aren't engaged doing something else, then nothing happens.

QuoteSometimes PL shows the plugin container is the culprit, sometimes not.
Quote from: bitsum.support on October 25, 2011, 09:10:50 PMWell, if it is causing a big responsiveness problem, then you can click away, but if you are browsing and this happens, there is nothing that can be done. In simple terms, if you are actively browsing, you want all your CPU resources to hopefully get through that script, ya know? Anyway, Process Lasso can do nothing to fix 'hung script' problems.. it is a totally different issue, and not at all resolvable. The only way to resolve it is by doing what browsers do, ask you if you want to give up .. or keep waiting. HOWEVER, if you were doing something ELSE, and this script problem happened in the BACKGROUND, then Process Lasso's ProBalance would help keep it from affecting whatever you were doing in the FOREGROUND.
QuoteMiroku4444 : when disabling in firefox so only one process is running did you notice any ram saving or it just adds what usage plugin-container uses to firefox.exe process , just curious if you noticed any difference .

It doesn't hog anything from firefox.exe. It uses memory and is a CPU hog at times to your PC on its own. Open the task manger when its running and you'll find it there sucking resources.
