How to Fix Script Error caused by Amazon Assistant

Script errors are messages originated from debugging different programming language scripts, usually the most commons are JavaScript errors. Although most of the times script errors will show up while trying to load a page, there are some times that software running in the background will try to access domain, ports or protocols causing this errors to appear.
