    Edit post Screen locked up on me.

    OK tech gurus... I just tried to edit a post, to add a URL to a post in Rob's Heater thread. When I did so, I could get the quick edit screen up, and I could type in the text box, but when I tried to switch to the advanced edit screen it froze up on me. I couldn't get to the advanced edit, or save the text I had input. Using Safari on my iMac OSX Lion I believe it is (one edition behind the latest and greatest release). Am about to restart Safari, and see if that helps.


    testing one, two

    Seems to be Safari Specific, Firefox works just fine

    I think I see yer problem there, Nedly.

    Seriously, no idea why you're seeing the problem. Did the reboot fix anything? How about the universal "whap the side of the monitor a time or two" trick?

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Hmm...I just tried to edit my post upthread, and it took less than a second for the Advanced Edit screen to show up. Are you guys getting the same behavior on multiple tries, or has it been a one-time thing?

    I only did it once today and had to wait for the message that I wanted to edit to come up that was the slow part it opened the edit window but no message
