Glad to hear it.

Unfortunately, it's quite difficult to determine which script eats up 
the system's resources, notably its CPU and RAM). Moreover, NoScript can 
only blacklist domain names, not offensive (probably defective) scripts.

NoScript, though, shouldn't take the blame for this problem.  A lot of 
websites use javascript and use it too much.  In addition, many websites 
use code from other sites over which they have no control.  And Firefox, 
which is in many ways a really effective and useful browser, provides no 
tools (none I know of) which allows users even just to track processes 
launched by a visited website, let alone throttle or kill those which 
are causing problems.  It's a serious problem which deserves a lot more 
attention than it's getting.
