"Script Warning" popup with Search->AdvancedSearch


Interesting. A day or so ago I started getting the popup dialog box below when I click on "Search->AdvancedSearch". Anybody else seeing this? I haven't upgraded anything or changed any configs recently.
Code:
SCRIPT WARNING:

A script on this page is causing Mozilla to run slowly.
If it continues to run, your computer may become unresponsive.

Do you want to abort the script?

+------+    +--+
|CANCEL|    |OK|
+------+    +--+
I kill the script per the dialog box and everything procedes normally.

Using FireFox 1.0.7 (yeah, I know it's old) and Debian SID with 2.6.14 kernel. I do not have any Firefox extensions or plugins installed.

Additional info:

I now see this only happens when I first go to "Forums" using the upper nav bar and then click Search->AdvancedSearch from the nav bar.

This issue does not come up if I invoke the search after any other previous nav bar jump (e.g., to Home, HCL, Reviews, Tutorials, Articles, or MyLQ) It only happens if I first jump to "Forums", then invoke "Search->AdvancedSearch".

I have also been getting this today, but I thought it was just me. It usually happens when I try clicking on "Quick Links". I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.7, with no extensions installed.

I'm running Firefox 1.5.0.7 and can't reproduce the problem.

Odd, it seems to have gone back to normal for me now :/.

Edit: nope, I'm still having the problem.

It's a 100% repeatable problem for me.

No more problems for me. I just tried my repeatable failure scenerio about 6 times and it now worked perfectly every time!

It was a minor thing, and I was almost embarassed to bring it up, but thanks for fixing it!
