I’ve been driven a little (more) nuts lately with my iGoogle popping up with the following slow script error:
Slow Script – Safari is no longer responding because of a script on the webpage “iGoogle” (http://partnerpage.google.com/denverboulder.com?tab=mS). Do you want to stop running the script, or let it continue?
Here’s the solution…
I’ve isolated the problem to the chat widget in the left column. I use iChat to connect to the google (Jabber) chat service, and that causes other errors about being logged in from multiple locations. So, how do you just want to disable it? Google doesn’t make it especially easy to find, but here are the instructions for turning chat off in Gmail and iGoogle:
- Visit the iGoogle Preferences page at http://www.google.com/ig/settings
- In the top section of the ‘General’ tab, click Hide chat.
- Click Save to save your settings.
That’s it! No more slow scripts. No more multiple location errors.
