Stack overflow question

    Occassionally when on Facebookwith MSIE if I have 2 instance of
    Facebook open (Different pages) I will get an error message of "Stack
    Overflow at Line: 31". When I click OK the page finishes loading
    fine.

    Any suggestions as to what is going on?

    Running:

    <<< System Summary >>>
    > Manufacturer : eMachines Inc.
    > Mainboard : eMachines WMCP61M
    > Chipset : nVidia GeForce 6100V
    > Processor : AMD Athlon Neo MV 26 @ 1600 MHz
    > Physical Memory : 4096 MB (2 x 2048 DDR2-SDRAM )
    > Video Card : NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
    > Hard Disk : ST3160815AS (160 G8)
    > DVD-Rom Drive : HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH15F
    > Monitor Type : L1975NW - 19 inches
    > Operating System : Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.01.2600

    Service Pack 3
    > DirectX : Version 9.0c


    All that was running other then virus and 2 instance of Internet
    Explorer was what Windows itself had running in background.

    TIA

    The "stack" is an area of RAM for temporary storage of the variables in the
    registers and other things; eg, when a program "calls" a subroutine a value
    is pushed onto the stack; when the subroutine terminates, the "return"
    removes the variable pushed by the call and program execution resumes at
    that address.

    If a stack overflows, something is trying to store too many variables there.
    Another possible cause is not removing previously stored values. In either
    case, it is due to poor programming and there is nothing you can do about
    it.

    Not necessarily, Facebook might well have been running scripts.

    Thanks for the reply. Thought maybe it was something wrong on my end
    but I never have had problems running anything else. Just on
    Facebook.
