I'm using Firefox in a slackware64 14.1 environment. Lately when
I look at Google News it makes long delays and then posts a box
about a Google script program holding up the work and do I want
to stop it.
This box has a 'Debug' option and if I choose that, I find the
script is a 7000+ line monster full of tightly packed text. It
raises several questions that I find this thing intruded into
my personal business, but the two I think I most want answers
1) Can somebody suggest a good news resource, something like
what Google News does when it works but without the egregious
intrusion and nuisance?
2) When I have chosen the 'debug' option upon seeing the script
box, I see that immense Google script file and I can read it,
but I don't see an option to save a copy of it. I'd like to
save a copy of that so I can examine review it and try to guess
what it's up to. So when I'm in that script 'debug' mode, how
do I save a copy of it so I can try to guess what it's up to?
Or communicate it to others? ??
Note: I spend a lot of time in cyberspace environments, and I
don't get upset by facing something 'techical'. However, I'm
retired age 87 and I am not a techie. ...Interesting world
out there but I'm extremely doubtful about the goodness of
some of it. Anyhow,
