This is getting infuriating

    Creating a hub at the moment is driving me crazy, i have to close out my browser, and restart it every time i add a new capsule, and every time i add a picture, the screen freezes and i have to do it all over again. then when i publish a hub i have to go back into the edit screen and re order everything to the way it was before i published it, hubpages is getting slower and slower every day to load , if it decides to load at all.
    i use internet explorer 7 which has been like this for a while.
    i also use aols browser and in the past few days the problems have started there.
    i wonder if anyone else shares these problems?
    another of jimmy's rants lol.....jimmy

    To be honest, I've been making hubs frequently as of late, and I've not had a single problem.  (Sorry to say that to the folks who've been having trouble... I keep reading your posts.)

    I'm on a Mac, running the older OS 10.3.9, using the latest Firefox and it's been doing just fine.

    Im on an Intel Mac running 10.4 and Firefox and Ive had tons of problems with photos and moving capsules around for the last couple of days. And when merging photo capsules with text capsules, it would do it and then scroll to the bottom of the page.

    And I had a really hard time today getting the text in some capsules to sit at the top of the box, it kept inserting a line of space.

    Ive had lots of problems with firefox lately, so maybe its just the browser, Ill make my next hub in Safari and see if theres a difference.

    Guess I won't use Safari then.

    I use it for surfing the site and leaving comments sometimes, I assumed it would work.

    Not for me it doesn't - Camino is a better browser though. i was having trouble, but I updated Firefox and the problem has gone. I am using now and it's much better.

    I've only had 1 instance and it was my connection/ISP. Since then I've had no problems. Try Fire Fox and see if it's better for you.

    I use Opera and have had no problems.  However I was doing some caretaking-type work recently and was hoping to get some more Hubs written during the quiet times.  I barely got any done, because they used Internet Explorer and I was having all the problems JimmyJock mentions.

    Jimmy, I have problems with IE 7 across many sites.  It crashes and hangs on just about everything. I switched to firefox as my main browser.

    I wrote two hubs in the past few days and had to enter text into the text boxes more than a few times because sometimes it seemed like it was updating things backwards... that is, unupdating them... or something.  I don't know.  It's frustrating.

    I'm on a Mac with Firefox, if that means anything.

    I published my first hub tonight using firefox, although it worked a little better, it did freeze once when i was adding a picture, i will use it for now until ie7 works better with hubpages ,thanks guys for your help and advice.....jimmy

    I have an idea. Sometimes its the cache in IE that bogs up the refreshing and loading of a page. I would suggest that you clear cookies, offline content and wipe the cache then close IE and reboot the page.. this may solve it. Sometimes its cookies, cookies are problematic (rarly though) when the data in it becomes corupt for whatever reason, this can stop you from logging into sites and other things so I though its possible that clearing all these things can possibly solve it. A test we used to run as a tech support agent is we'd have them downlaod and try a different browser (i.e mozilla) and see if the problems persisted, if they didnt you could possibly see that its the cache (its easy to just clear it then try it but some people wouldnt do it without being sure so we had them get another browser and try it)..

      Hope this helps you.. also realize that 85% of computer errors like freezups happen because of memory issues (meaning the electronic data in the memory is or became corrupt for some reason, it happens) so you can just cold boot your computer, completely shut it off wait 30 seconds and turn it back on (some people never turn their computer off and thus the problem happens, when you reboot your machine every day it actually helps this problem not happen to you).. of course their are other possibilies but this is the easiest to test and risks nothing, and usually works.. if you never turn your computer off this is most likely the cure.

    Hope this helps.
