I only have this problem on mothering.com, and I am pretty sure it is from the scripts run by some of the ads, as it doesn't happen all the time but it is frequent and frustrating.  Sometimes when I load a new page with a new ad, my browser (either Firefox or Chrome) completely freezes up.  Most of the time in Firefox after a minute or two, I get an error message about "A script has stopped running...." and I tell it to stop the script.  However, recently I have had the freezes with no way to recover but force-quit the program.  Again, I do not have this problem with other sites that I visit, just with mothering.com, and I have done some tests recently with only opening MDC in the browser to verify.  After a few minutes of fighting with it I'm usually just ready to give up and not look at the site anymore.

I've reported this. Can you tell me what version of Firefox and Chrome you are using? Mac, Windows or other?

somegirl99, it would also help if you can tell me what ad and where it is loading - up top, on the right, etc. If thre is a message you can screenshot that would help too. Thanks!
