How to Remove the Script Error Pop-Up

By Christopher Hanson

Websites that use scripts to enhance the user experience occasionally cause error pop-ups to appear. These errors may be the result of a coding error or an incompatibility with the specific computer and browser on the website. Most browsers allow users to disable scripts from running.
