    I think it has something to do with my google chrome but I am unable to edit or publish my hubs when I am in chrome. I switched to explorer and had no problem. Does anyone know of anything specific going on between chrome and hubpages?

      Hi Randi, it may be something else because I use Google Chrome and manage to edit, read, etc. my Hubs. (Then, again, I have the opposite problem; I switched to Chrome because IE doesn't seem to work very well, even though I use my Netbook which uses Windows XP, so should be very IE friendly.) I hope you figure out what the issue is - but I'm glad you've got a work-around for editing your Hubs.

      I'm sorry about that, btrbell! Chrome seems to be working OK for me, too. Are you still unable to edit Hubs using the broswer? Have you tried re-starting it and/or your computer?

      Sometimes web browsers just go kaplooie for no reason.  Chrome is especially noted for that.  I have found in the past, the best way to correct it is to uninstall Chrome then re-install it.

      Sorry to hear about the problems you are having using Chrome.
      I tested editing multiple capsule in Hubs using Chrome 26.0.1410.64m and Windows 7, which you are using, and was unable to reproduce the issue you are experiencing.

      The issue might be isolated to your computer or browser.

      Here are some things to try.
      Disable or remove all browser extensions. … wer=113907

      Clear your browser cache.
      Restart your computer.
      Restart your network hardware (router, switch, cable modem, DSL modem, etc.)

      As @tillsontitan mentioned, if that doesn't fix the issue, you can also try completely uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. … r-problems

    Thank you all for your comments and ideas. So far it is still not working. I have found a couple of other programs that are not working either so I believe it is a chrome issue. I have uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it. I have cleaned out any unnecessary programs and cleared my browser. Since I have been putting in overtime at work, that is all the time I have been able to dedicate to it so far but I will follow up on Matthew's suggestions! Once again, thank you!

    Sometimes things that are downloaded to our computers without our knowledge are the culprit.  When you look for new files and see unfamiliar extensions that's usually the one!  Matthew was right on the money and offered you some great tips!
