    Every time I've made a new hub today, I'm getting an error when choosing what topic it falls under.  This has happened under multiple topic choices.  I'm using the latest version of Firefox.

    If you hit "Okay," it gives you another error.

    It didn't seem to affect anything else I was publishing, but it was more annoying than anything else.

    carpesomediem: I just installed Firefox 5 and wasn't able to replicate this. When exactly does this come up?

      When I click the "Start a new hub" link and it asks me to choose a topic I'm having the issue.  It's only when I use the search feature for it, I just realized.  It's still happening to me.  If it's on my end, I have no idea what conflict is causing it.  It only started happening today.

      Maybe someone's trying to tell me to make the switch to Chrome, lol.

        I tried this again, and the search feature worked when I used "real" words (i.e. gave real results) as well as with nonsense words (when it said there were no matching categories found).

        You're clicking the "start a new Hub" in the header, and then entering in a title for your Hub, and then you're seeing this?

    Yep, I'm following the steps you described to create the hubs.  I really have no clue what could be causing it.

      I even tried logging in as you and tried with Firefox 5.0 on my PC (Win7). No luck - I didn't experience that problem.

      Maybe restart your browser or see if there's an update possible for it?

        I've tried restarting it, no updates available that it's telling me.  I've refreshed the cache, cookies, everything I could to no luck.

        Everyone has been telling me to switch to Chrome, I think I'm that point where I finally will.

        Thanks for trying to figure this out for me Jason!  I do appreciate it.  smile
