Fix Firefox "Unresponsive Script" warnings

Recently i was facing this problem while writing some Automated Web Functional testing using selenium that firefox pops a warning for unresponsive script (for some how i had to use Thread.sleep(1000)).

This is not only annoying but also hearts the efforts for producing unattended scripts.

Google again come to rescue and i got this from. So the solution goes like:
Go the hidden configuration page in Firefox by typing about:config in the address bar . (make sure that you are doing this for the profile you are using for selenium)
In the 'Filter' box, type script_run_time. This will narrow the options to dom.max_script_run_time and dom.max_chrome_script_run_time.

Right-click it and choose Modify. A box pops up. Change the number to something bigger like 40. This is the maximum time a script can run before Firefox considers it 'unresponsive'.

If you can’t find the string in the about:config page, create it by right-clicking anywhere and then choose New—> Integer and enter there name.

Training videos for Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers

Lately I've been doing Web service testing using Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers. When I started testing using Team Edition, the features available in the "Software Testers" version were new to me and very confusing. I was able to quickly overcome my inexperience with a set of videos found at ASP.net. There are 27 in all, and the series is entitled: Videos on how to improve the quality and integrity of your software solutions. I didn't watch every one of them but I intend to. Check 'em out if you're just getting started with VS 2005 for Software Testers and I guarantee it'll give you a serious boost and make you productive a lot faster.

There is also a great video series available on MSDN entitled How Do I?. They have a specific subset based on testing entitled: How Do I: Use .NET Code to Customize Coded Web Tests?

Avoid the fumbling around and watch somebody do it first. It makes things so much easier!
