Hopefully this makes sense (apologies if it doesn't) but today I started noticing sometimes when I try adding a section to a hub, nothing would happen and the side button would be "stuck" saying cancel. It would also move with the page as I scrolled. Is this just something that happens or is it possibly me?
For more background info, I generally use Firefox as my browser.
The problem isn't too bothersome but because of it I now make sure I have two HP tabs open to see if my changes take while the first one is frozen.
I'm hoping this problem is just a bug in Firefox or something. Forgive me if this is normal, I've only been here a week, lol.
Welcome, HarperDavis. I was having trouble, too. I finally stopped using Firefox and started using Google Chrome. My hubs finally stopped freezing during editing. I also make sure that I delete the history more frequently.
Thanks for replying! I might try it out on other browsers and see what happens. I recently set my computer so it doesn't log history at all (thought it was extra work for no reason), but I'll look into it again.
History and cache are two different items. Clearing history does not necessarily clear the cache as in most browsers you have the option to pick either or both. You may want to see if you are clearing the cache as well.
Always happens to me. I just add new capsules from the top right and after a bit it fixes itself.
Welcome to HubPages HarperDavis. I am happy and proud that you figured out the right place to post your question.
I also use Firefox and that happens to me from time to time. Even if it is "normal" it shouldn't be happening.
I assumed that the issue was my computer and not HubPages, because it generally happens when some program kicks in the background, like my Virusscan kicks in, or Windows decides to upload an update. It has happened (rarely) when there isn't background stuff, but mostly at the end of the day after I've viewed videos or otherwise taxed the system. Probably I need more RAM (or better yet a new computer).
Do you know if your issue happens when there is background stuff happening?
Thanks for replying and the welcome Millionaire Tips.
I almost always have something running in the background, but only programs like iTunes for music or Word to help me edit. I do have CS5 and other RAM heavy programs but I only open them when necessary. I'll see what happens when I only have Firefox open though. I own a Mac so I'll test our your hypothesis with Safari as well.

I was trying to comment on a hub but it won't accept my comment. I refreshed the hub but my comment did not show up. I went to Hubtivity and there is no record that I placed the comment. One thing I noticed is that when this happens (this is not the first time), the comment box is...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

I'm still having problems saving text capsules that have links in them.I've been having the problem for months now. Every now and then I can't save text capsules that have contextual links within the capsule. I'm using Firefox and I've tried Safari today. I can only get it to work most of the time...

I know the question has been asked before. I have searched the forums, previously asked questions, and hubs about backlinking. Most say how important it is, that there's a place you can do it, what you need to do it (URL), but I can't find any step-by-step info on how to do it. Do you look for...

Hello Staff,I remember someone else starting a thread on this topic and I went back a 2 weeks looking for the thread, but unable to find it.However, I came across "ad code" being displayed on one of my hubs and I took a picture of it, so Staff can see it for themselves.I hope it's just a...

It appears the suggest links tool is not working as intended. When I launch it, it appears to work, but click on an existing link, such as to remove it, results in the dreaded "Working" dialogue and just a hang. Refreshing and trying again does the same thing, and on all Hubs.Using...
