Scripting


Recommended Posts

Just curious and not sure I'm in the right forum, but on some websites I go on it is very slow and Windows has a pop up on the bottom that says "Windows has blocked scripting on this site" or something to that effect. Huffinton Post is a good one for that and some Yahoo sites. Once I click the X in the Windows pop up box it speeds back up again. Does anybody know what causes scripting and why only on some sites. Is there a fix for this or a setting Windows to stop this nonsense? I'm running Windows 8.1 on a laptop. Thanks

yes i remember you ocean,been a long time. anyways i just did a fresh install of W 7 and a couple days ago got the same pop up on firefox, now i have to figure this out.

Well I remember that happening a few times when I had Windows 7 too. JC say's it's Java scripting and has left an informative link. I will have to check it out. I understand that in Windows 8 that Windows has it's own sort of built in version of their own java and aren't using Java anymore. Will research this some more and get back with you on this.

what? O.o

 

windows hasn't had their own java version in about 10 years or so. if you have java it's from oracle and nobody else, and it's not installed with windows. it must be installed by itself.

difference between java and javascript

http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/java_javascript.xml

 

why some websites use javascript

http://javascript.about.com/od/reference/a/javascriptpurpose.htm

 

how to make sure javascript is enabled in your web browser

http://www.enable-javascript.com/

 

the reasons why some pages you visit are slow is probably because you have javascript disabled in your web browser, so i'd suggest enabling it.

 

java is unsafe and recommended not to even be installed on your pc unless needed.

javascript is considered safe and should be enabled in your web browser.

Well that's very strange since I don't have Java or JavaScript installed on this computer. Can you explain the scripting?

javascript is not a program installed on your windows os like java would be, it is a feature built into web browsers.

so it is in your web browser settings that you would check to see if it is enabled or not.

everything you see on a web page is code (html usually) that your pc reads and then displays, javascript is a different type of code that is part of that web page your seeing that enables you to interact with the page where needed better than html code allows.

html :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML
javascript :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaScript

so usually if you see a javascript error, it is either because you have javascript turned off in your browser or the person who coded the web page your looking at made a mistake in his code causing something on the page not to work correctly and give you an error.

:b33r:

just read the topic from the beginning and should mention scripting is not just javascript, there are loads of scripting languages, activex for instance is also a form of scripting and could be (not sure because i'm not a windows os user.) what your browser is blocking with this error message "Windows has blocked scripting on this site"

think of scripts as just being little programs built into the web page that can do something, this could include installing malware onto your pc, but are usually needed for one reason or another for you to best interact with the page your looking at.

scripting :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scripting_language

activex :- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Active_Scripting
and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActiveX

some info i think you'll find interesting about activex and it's security settings and how scripting works :- http://blogs.technet.com/b/fdcc/archive/2011/11/03/enabling-initialize-and-script-activex-controls-not-marked-as-safe-in-any-zone-can-get-you-hurt-bad.aspx

no i don't think java has anything to do with it and i'd recommend uninstalling java again.

if you needed java you'd get an error message saying you need to install java plugin click here to download or some such thing.

Very informative article, but it's about older versions of Java. Java recommends removing older versions with a removal tool and downloading the latest version. I still would not trust it, but I do choose to disable it in my browser until I need it. There are some apps I run that do require java such as internet speed test and some 2D apps.

Not sure what speed test you're running, but I run speedtest.net and need no java. In fact I uninstalled it a long time ago and have never gotten a notification that it was needed. :shrug:

Just my 2 cents..........

http://www.dslreports.com/stest There are many that java isn't required, but I prefer this one, it seems to give more consistent speeds and a bit faster for some reason????
