    I just spent two hours plus putting together a hub and I was almost finished when.  I went to change a picture in a photo capsule and it would not let me delete the one that was already in there.  And now the screen has just gone white - I can see my hub but it is faded and I can't save it or change it or access it in any way.  What is up with this?   Any ideas?

      That happens to me sometimes, usually I have to come away from hubpages and go back in, then it's all fine.

        It will probably still be saved (the bit you'd done before the photo)

      That happens to me all the time.  It seems to happen more if I've already moved the picture capsule up where I want it, and then try to change the size.  It happens less (if at all) when I edit the size of the picture before moving the capsule up.

      I'm almost afraid to tell you this, but I what I do I hit the "back" button.  Then I'll get the "are you sure...  you may lose stuff"   message.   What happens (at least for me) is whatever is already in there gets saved as unpublished draft.  Then I go find it in my account and edit it.  Most of the time, everything I have is there.  Sometimes the one picture capsule I was doing will be empty, so I'll have to re-load the picture.   (If, by any chance, you try this, do any editing of a new capsule while it's still on the bottom).   

      One thing I think is worth noting is that I write my text into Word Pad and copy and paste them.  If you've written y our text directly into the text box on the Hub, you may want copy it before trying what I just said.

      P.S:   I want to reserve the right not to be held responsible if any disaster happens.   hmm   smile

      I had that happen to me today for the first time.  I was using Firefox, because IE does not want to upload the photos--it just sits there "thinking" for several minutes.  Usually, Firefox uploads the photos in a very short order.
      Tonight, however, Firefox apparently crashed on me, and I had the white screen.  I mean it was WHITE--not grayed-out or faded--plain blank white!
      Maybe I just had too many other tabs open???

        I use Firefox, but I always get the thing where I can see the Hub "underneath" the white.

      Log out and back in after a while. It seems to be "hanging" there and nothing works. Not to worry smile

    Hey Raisingme, refresh the page. That's all required.

    Edit: then go back to the capsule, delete the capsule and reinstall a new capsule. smile

      That's never worked for me, but  I've never tried working IE.  I wonder if that makes a difference?  Do you use Firefox or something else, Cagsil?

      That did not work for me.  Refresh did nothing; I had to resort to Ctr+Alt+Del !!!

      There is a glitch in hubpages at the moment . It is very slow and not saving pictures. Don't worry you will have all that you saved before the picture intact. I just got through this whole mess and  decided to finish my hub later when the net is faster.
