Option to disable warning "Notebook not responding"

When working on a notebook I frequently pause script execution. Recently this has been triggering the “Notebook not responding” warning, which can only be dismissed until the page is reloaded.

I’d like an option to globally disable the warning because it’s slightly disruptive and, at least for me, unneccessary.


They could also try to detect if the dev tools are open and disable the warning.

This is, in fact, exactly what we shipped yesterday. (Suppressing the loop warning if the devtools appear to be open.)


Works for me, although I have some notes:

  • When a new notebook is opened while the worker thread is stuck/paused the message never appears in the new notebook.
  • The message should probably contain a hint that the origin of the bug or problem can be another notebook.
