Try rebooting your computer it might do the trick, if this fails, make sure your internet connection is working properly.

If the above doesn't work make sure that –
File > Work Offline Is not checked!

Good luck.

Syntax errors are the most common problem for developers. A single syntax error can cripple even the best applications and websites. You can correct syntax errors easily once you find them. Typical errors include missing commas, semicolons and parenthesis. Debuggers are available in many software development kits to aid you in the location of syntax errors. However, you can find and correct syntax errors manually as well. Learning how to correct syntax errors is an essential part of being a software developer.

Locate the syntax error manually. Step through each section of your code. Most code will be sectioned off into groups or functions. Carefully proof your code. Be sure to pay close attention to how lines are grouped. A common syntax mistake is incorrect grouping.

For instance, if you have an If Else statement embedded in another If Else statement, be sure the embedded statement is surrounded by a separate set of parenthesis or brackets, depending on your language. Double-check notes sections. Notes are only for the developer to see. However, if the syntax isn't correct, the notes may become part of your application, which may not agree with existing code. Ensure the syntax around your notes is correct. Run a debugger if possible. This will make locating errors much easier. A debugger will be found under a menu such as Debug, Run or Tools or as part of your SDK's toolbar. Allow the debugger to run. Errors will be listed at the bottom or right side of your screen. Many debuggers will highlight possible errors in your code as well. A line number, along with the possible error, will be listed in the error message. Locate your syntax error if the debugger isn't correct. Sometimes a debugger will show you where your application stopped working correctly. The syntax error itself may be above or below the line listed in the debugger message. Check all syntax within the surrounding area, especially within the line's function. Run your application after correcting the syntax error. Check every possible function of your application to ensure it works correctly. If you find a problem, double-check the syntax in your code that surrounds the problem area. For instance, if your application has a log-in screen that isn't accepting passwords correctly, check the code for the log-in screen. Remove Syntax Error syntax error typically occurs when the Web page you are loading causes a script error in the browser. This is caused by incorrect code that displays an error message or results in a Web page that does not load correctly. You can remove a syntax error by making a change to the settings of your Web browser. Common Web browsers that can experience this type of error include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Safari.
Double-click the "Internet Explorer" icon to open the program. Click the "Tools" drop-down menu and select "Internet Options." This will display the Internet Options window. Go to the "Advanced" tab and scroll down to the "Browsing" section. Remove the check from the box for "Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer)," "Disable script debugging (Other)" and "Display a notification about every script error." Click the "Apply" button to save the changes. Click the "OK" button to close the Internet Options window. Close and restart the Internet Explorer browser for the changes you made to take effect. b> Mozilla Firefox b> Double-click the "Mozilla Firefox" icon to open the program. Type "about:config" into the address bar and press the "Enter" key. Type "dom.max_script_run_time" into the Filter text box and press the "Enter" key. Double-click "dom.max_script_run_time" to display the Enter Integer Value dialog box. Enter a value of "10" or "15" into the text box and click the "OK" button to save the change. Close and then restart the Firefox browser for the change to take effect. b> Safari b> Click the "Safari" icon to open the Web browser. Select the option for "Preferences" from the menu bar. Go to the Advanced tab and click the option for "Show Develop menu in menu bar." Click the option for "Develop" from the menu bar. Click the option for "Disable Runaway JavaScript Timer." Close and re-open the browser for the change to take effect.

Firefox Tweak to max speed


There are dozens of articles on how to speed up and optimize Mozilla Firefox using various tweaks to the default Firefox settings. I've used Firefox for years now and when I upgrade from one PC to another I always forget my top tweaks I use to make Firefox faster and then have to research them again. So now I'm going to document my favorite speed tweaks here on my blog for future reference.<br /><br />1) Tweak the page render time from 250ms to 0ms.<br />This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it displays the web page. Mozilla applications render web pages incrementally - they display what's been received of a page before the entire page has been downloaded. Since the "start" of a web page normally doesn't have much useful information to display, Mozilla applications will wait a short interval (default: 250ms) before first rendering a page. But with fast broadband connections you can set this to '0' and get a nice speed boost!<br /><br />How:<br />Open the Firefox "config" page: click into the Firefox address location bar, and type about:config, and press Enter.<br /><br />The Config file will appear in the Firefox browser.<br />Right-click, New, integer. Type 'nglayout.initialpaint.delay' and set to '0'.<br /><br />2) Turn on http pipelining, a technique in which multiple HTTP requests are written out to a single socket without waiting for the corresponding responses. This results in a dramatic improvement in page load times. Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time, but when you enable pipelining it will make several at once.<br /><br />How:<br />In the about:config page, filter on this text 'pipel', which will display this:<br /><br /><img src="havingline.jpg" /><br /><br />Set your settings as follows:<br />network.http.pipelining: true<br />network.http.pipelining.maxrequests: 8 (screenshot shows '100' but it maxes out at 8)<br />network.http.proxy.pipelining: true<br /><br />3) Increase RAM cache setting value for 'browser.cache.memory.capacity'<br />When images are loaded, they can be cached so they don't need to be decoded or uncompressed to be redisplayed. This reduces the amount of network activity to reload previously viewed messages. This preference controls the maximum amount of memory to use for caching decoded images, messages, and chrome items (application user interface elements). By default it is set to '-1' to automatically decide the maximum memory to use to cache decoded images, messages, and chrome based on the total amount of RAM. Here's the default values depending on your RAM:<br /><br />Physical RAM Memory Cache (in KB)<br />32 MB 2048<br />64 MB 4096<br />128 MB 6144<br />256 MB 10240<br />512 MB 14336<br />1 GB 18432<br />2 GB 24576<br />4 GB 30720<br />8 GB and up 32768<br /><br />The default values are a bit on the low-side. For instance, I have 16GB on my PC, so I can easily bump the automatic 32676 setting to double or even triple that. If you set this to a high fixed value you will see noticeably improved back/forward button performance while going many steps back/forward within Firefox.<br /><br />How:<br />In the about:config page, you can search for 'browser.cache.memory.capacity'. If it's not there, just add it with the type 'Integer' and set the Integer value to a high value. I set mine to 131072.<br /><br />4) This tweak is debatable. I've read changing content.notify.backoffcount can improve performance. What does this parameter do? According to Mozilla, "Rather than wait until a page has completely downloaded to display it to the user, Mozilla applications will periodically render what has been received to that point. Because reflowing the page every time additional data is received greatly slows down total page load time, a timer was added so that the page would not reflow too often. This preference controls the maximum number of times the content will do timer-based reflows. After this number has been reached, the page will only reflow once it is finished downloading."<br /><br />So, if a page reflows too often, it can slow down your browser. This was probably more true when on pokey dial-up connections where some of the images would load but not finish and depending on the size of the image, it could reflow the text incorrectly until another image loaded or the css stylesheet finished loading, etc. Nevertheless, if you want to try this tweak, I read setting it to '5' works well. So Firefox will reflow 5 times, and then on the 6th time, it will just wait for the page to completely load instead of reflowing the entire page again. But if you want to give it a go:<br /><br />How:<br />In about:config, set content.notify.backoffcount = 5<br /><br />5) Enable Windows to swap memory Firefox is using from RAM onto the hard disk. Benefits: Frees up RAM Firefox is using, so that Firefox is only using about 10MB when minimized. As a side benefit, this seems to help with the "memory leak" that Firefox is known for. Somehow when you minimize Firefox, and then restore it, Firefox does NOT use as much RAM as it did previously. So no need to restart Firefox periodically! Drawback: It can cause a delay when the program is restored since it has to read from your hard disk instead of RAM.<br /><br />How:<br />Set config.trim_on_minimize to 'true' (If this doesn't exist in about:config, add it as a Boolean value)<br /><br />So those are my top 5 Firefox tweaks. Now close and restart your Firefox browser and you should see an immediate increase in page rendering, web page transfer speed, and faster loading of all your tabbed windows. Enjoy!<br /><br />Update:<br />Make sure Network.prefetch-next = 'true'. Mine was already set, but just in case, make sure yours is on for the best page load times.<br /><br />

Web page performance is a measure of the response load time of a web page. The slower a page loads, the higher the page's visitor bounce rate will be. There are quite a few free tools available on the market designed to conduct diagnostic performance tests on web pages. These tests analyze a select page, based a set of rules that are proven to speed the load time. You can use a web-based performance analyzing tool. Or you can install tool add-ons to your Firefox web browser.

Open your computer's web browser and go to GTmetrix.com or http://www.pagespeed.googlelabs.com/ Enter the complete URL of the page you would like to measure in the provided field. Press "Enter" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using Page Speed Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the Page Speed add-on from the Google website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page you would like to measure in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "Page Speed" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Analyze Performance" to get the results of your performance test. b> Using YSlow Firefox Add-On b> Launch the Firefox web browser. Download and install the YSlow add-on from the Yahoo website. Download and install the Firebug add-on from the GetFireBug website. Enter the URL of the web page in the Firefox address bar. Click the Firebug icon located in the top right-side of the Firefox window, to open the Firebug window. Click the "YSlow" button in the Firebug status bar. Click "Run Test" to get the results of your performance test. Hope this helps.
