Hello,

I'm using a .js that I obtained that is responsible for a slider that shuffles through a set of images, then repeats.

The timer is set to 6 seconds, but (on some machines/browsers more than others) the slider speeds up to <1second - which means that it is impossible to read the information. It also cycles, i.e. starts at 6 seconds, drops to <1 second, then makes it back to 6seconds, etc. As if it is out of sync with something.

I'm not too familiar with .js so I've been pulling my hair out for 5 hours now researching this

I would really welcome any help - please let me know if I need to give anymore information.

Code from the page requiring use of the slider:

Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
		$(document).ready(function() {
			$('#slider').s3Slider({
				timeOut: 6000
			});
		});
    </script>

Code from the file featuredlist.js

Code:
