    Question Browser crashing when trying to edit post


    My browser crashes every time I try to edit a post. This has never happened before. Is this happening to anyone else? Site problem? Any ideas?

    What browser are you using?

    F.Y.I. - I changed my Message Editor Interface from 'Enhanced' to 'Standard' - and so far, no crashes when I edit...

    EDIT - I have gone back to using 'Enhanced' - so far no crashes - however, sometimes (only some of the time), when I click on 'Save' - it actually changes the post, but doesn't "revert back" to the normal post view (like it's stuck in edit mode)... I have to do a page reload to correct it. The rest of the time, it works fine. (so far, so good?)

    It just stopped working for me as well (it doesn't crash my browser though)...
    Before that, it caused an overload making my scroll wheel unusable for about 30 seconds.

    Not sure about your particular situation, but browsers will sometimes crash due to the fonts being used. You could play with them to see if it still crashes.

    Sweet, that works for me as well.
    ...it's still a hack though.

    @Ozar: so it does work for you(by simply clicking)?

    Yeah, it has been working fine by clicking, but I'm on a Windows box right now and that's working fine, too, but I'll check it out again under Linux when I get back to my Linux machine in a couple hours.
