It's good if Script Shield works, but it's not the end of the world if it doesn't at the very moment for this very build of the browser. There are other shields that still keep you covered, like Web Shield, Network Shield and File System Shield. Those work regardless of the browser version and they also check scripts.

I do not think that that is correct .. because then we might remove this shield .. I think that every shield fulfills his function ... ???

Interestingly the system hang problem which some users (me included) experience with some websites appears to be fixed in FF 23. That was my first observation, my second was could it be that it was the Avast script shield that was causing the problem?

I personally wasn't/haven't been experiencing any hang time in FF.
Website hangs can be caused by many different things as I'm sure you are aware; limited RAM being one of the main culprits.
Can't say for sure about Script Shield. :)

Script Shield doesn't seem to be working in Opera and in Mozillas's SeaMonkey. Details here:
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=131605.0

@RejZoR, if the other shields do the job, as you menioned in Reply#15, shouldn't we just uninstall Script Shield?
Or what does Script Shield do special when it works?
1. Toshiba Satellite A75, Windows XP-Pro-SP3, Avast! free v9, Sunbelt Firewall 4.7.4.0, SSM, Opera 12.17, SeaMonkey+NoScript, mvps hosts, (MalwareBytes updated and run on demand only, rarely used), Acronis v11, SUMo
2. Toshiba Thrive tablet (rooted) ICS, AdAway (hosts), Opera, Avast Mobile Security 3.0.7801, Titanium Backup, App Backup&Restore

Script Shield does additional analysis of scripts on runtime, but in general Web Shield checks the .js files before they enter browser and Network Shield checks their URL. And File System Shield also checks the files.

So if I use my own .VBS script, or someone gives me one, will ScriptShield check it as well in addition to files shield and behavior? Or if some .pdf file has scripts in it will the other shields check it?

Are they even aware of this problem.
