Been using Camino for years, but recently, I've havCamino crashes on finance.yahoo.come issues with http://finance.yahoo.com. It shows a script error and either stop script or cancel. I just have have to force close the browser. Any idea on this bug?

There's a script somewhere in there that really really really doesn't like older Gecko browsers. There are two solutions:

1) Turn off Javascript.
2) Figure out specifically which host is serving the offending script and block that in your hosts file.

Well, there's sort of a third: don't use Yahoo Finance, and use Google Finance instead. ;)

By the way, this isn't just a Yahoo Finance problem; it applies to pretty much all Yahoo properties including the home page. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=826800 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=825372 .

While surfing finance.yahoo.com I got this error message:

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: http://l1.yimg.com/zz/combo?yui:3.5.1/b ... 2973.js:14
