Sometimes you get error messages whether the feature is on or not. Always download the patches for your web browser. If you’re upgrading the browser, check the readme.txt and help files. It might contain vital information.
Also, your online connection might play a part. If it’s choppy, loading the page will take a while. This could result in error messages popping up as well.
Some scripts can inflict damage on your browser. Don’t go to suspicious looking websites. In particular you should avoid sites with pirated software. Although most of these scripts are harmless, you should keep your antivirus software updated.
