Does anyone has this problem? I try to post two articles and in both cases google chrome will kill hubpages. I needed to try more than 10 times just to get it to post a photograph from my computer. I am wondering if anyone knows why this happens with hubpages.
it happens to me before. I reported it here http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/82500#post1771792
I changed the os to win 7. But i'm still getting errors and problems while uploading pics to hub from my computer.
I don't use Google Chrome when creating hubs. There are a number of problems--not just with uploading pictures. You might want to check on your sentences--there are no spaces between periods, either.
I am revising thanks for letting me know. This morning I found a couple of things where misplaced in the hub, like a comma in front of a sentence. Perhaps it is best to avoid chrome for the hubs...since I already have the ESL factor. Thanks a lot! Much appreciated.
I have long abandoned Chrome and Internet Explorer. Mozilla is my first choice. Hope this helps.
I also use Chrome with no problems, but you are not the only one finding issues with HP recently - see http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/84589
Dunno if its a server issue or what.
Sorry, Google, but I tried Chrome for awhile, but went back my old faithful Mozilla. As for IE, left it behind and never looked back a decade ago when the first incarnation of Mozilla came out. ;D
Well this delightful computer geek told me Mozilla is run by Goggle anyway ,which I wondered about because even though I hadnt used G.C for some months SpyBot always found tracking cookies (from Goggle Chrome) Hmmm...
..Maybe I just like the Fox lol
Google took over Mozilla? Think your friend is wrong, otherwise Google would've had no reason to develop Chrome.
Wasnt a friend ,and you could be right Jama.
I had a problem with my browser(navigator bar had changed) so I asked the question on 'Yahoo Answers'
Her answer went like this:
mozilla firefox the homepage is ran by google so,Its pretty much the same as google
I would just go to google and click set as homepage.
I didnt actually do what she suggested ,as I chose a different answer,but I do find some of the PC geeks helpful at times
I don't have any problems with Chrome, I am using it right now.
I'm currently using Chrome and have been fortunate that I'm not running into the same issue. For work purposes, I typically have all three browsers open and I find that IE and Firefox are painfully slow compared to Chrome.
I think Chrome's speed depends on the machine it's running on.
Why are you using three browsers simultaneously, btw?
For various Google online accounts (primarily different email accounts, Adsense, Analytics, etc.). If I login to one account, I get bounced out of the session of my other account (with a different user name / login address) within the same browser even if I open up another like browser tab or window. It never used to be this way, but it changed with a Chrome update.
With that said, I stumbled across working around this issue by having different browser windows open (ie: Chrome, Firefox, and IE).
Since I switched over to chrome I have had no issues at all.. Maybe your need to clear your cookies and history sometimes... I find Chrome works well with all the sites I write on... no issues at all.
I've not had problems with Chrome specifically on HP. However I do have endless grief with Shockwave crashing and pages just becoming "dead". Also, although Roboform supposedly now works with Chrome, I am unable to use it.
Trouble is, I feel stuck with Chrome. I went over to it because Firefox became immensely bloated at one point and slowed everything on my machine to a crawl, and IE was bloated from the start.
I do bitterly regret having opted for Chrome though. Don't know if Firefox is better now. However, I have never managed to transfer bookmarks properly between different browsers, and cannot face the idea of starting from scratch again.
In terms of speed, I have a Lenovo Thinkpad SL500. I don't know if it is fast or not. I am plagued with slow connections, computer disk churning away endlessly, etc, etc. This happens on every machine, despite the fact that each time I buy the most powerful laptop I can afford.
I use Google Chrome and had the problem yesterday. Just after I clicked on the photo upload button, the whole screen went dark and I had to clear out and start again. Fortunately, the article was saved and I did not have to rewrite the whole thing.
As with Writeangeled, Firefox proved to be a big mess that just will not work.
it's just too much flash going on that is not compatible with older systems.
I too get frequent shockwave crashes. I assumed it was a conflict with windows 7 as I never had this issue with Windows Vista, but maybe it is Chrome that is at fault.
Thank you folks. I didn't expected that many replies. You make good points against and in favor of chrome. I do like it and I like Mozilla as well. Thank you thank, you!
I switched back to Firefox ,even though it is slower. Chrome has been giving me problems for a week now with double forum posts, freezing up on pages and waiting forever for a webpage to open. I thought I has a virus and ran all the tests.
I guess others are also seeing some issues with it.

Hey everyone. Anyone else having trouble accessing HubPages through Google Chrome this morning? Every time I try to access the site, a "403 Forbidden" message pops up. Works fine on other browsers though.
