I use firefox and am getting a message everytime I click on a thread on mumsnet that says

'NoScript filtered a potential cross-site scripting (XSS) attempt from [http://www.mumsnet.com]. Technical details have been logged to the Console.'

Does anyone know what it means (in simpleton language)? How do I make it stop?

It's on a little box at the top of the screen btw and I don't see it when I am on the index etc, just on threads.
