Looks like IE 8 browser is finally history as to editing hubs

    Yesterday, the HP editor just flat out quit working for me.

    Same thing today.

    At first I thought it was a website problem, but the forums haven�t been buried in complaints.

    So I fired up Firefox and was indeed able to do a successful edit.

    I also noticed that processing time and traffic interaction have substantially increased when editing.

    I am curious as to whether anyone is still able to do a successful hub edit using IE 8.

    If they can, while I can�t, then it probably means I�ve got to pry open the wallet and buy some memory chips.


    The text in this note is all scrambled up everywhere I have used an apostrophe. So if it still looks that way after I click Submit, that is why.

      There must be more to it.  I use the latest IE with no problem.  It even has a special "compatibility view" for hubpages.  Perhaps you need to download the latest updates?

    Yep - no problems at all here - worked fine this morning - created a new hub - actually worked better than normal - I usually have to save several times - didn't have to save at all this time - and with 32 text modules and 32 ebay modules that's a record for me!

    It works  fine in Chrome, which is not a memory hog like Firefox.

    No problem - I'm slowly changing to Firefox these days anyways....so if IE is not working, just switch to Firefox and you should have no problems!

    I  use Google Chrome with no problem. It's tons faster than Firefox and doesn't take up so  much memory.

    I use Google Chrome and absolutely love it - it is so fast!  All is working fine here

    For those who may end up in the same situation:

    When all the usual/normal fixes failed, I threw out all the accumulated toolbars and other bells-and-whistles.

    Now everything works fine.
