Google Gears and WordPress Crashes

computer-crash

As I have exchanged links with a fair number of bloggers who are using WordPress I thought this might help out some. Earlier this week a problem developed where WordPress would crash while uploading pictures if run in Firefox. There was no problem in Internet Explorer. This began on both my notebook and my home desktop. I tried replicating this on a computer in an exam room which I don’t normally use for blogging and found that Firefox did not crash. After comparing things like version of Firefox I finally found one thing which was different. I had Google Gears enabled on my notebook and home computer, but not on computers at the office which are not used for blogging. I just disabled Google Gears on my notebook  (through the tools menu in Firefox) and the problem seems fixed. I will also check this out on my home computer, but for now I think that Google Gears was responsible for the crashes.

    I’ve never used joomla but have used Blogger. Blogger might be simpler in some ways but WordPress is more powerful, which winds up making it simpler to do more complex things with blogs. Perhaps that is because after moving to WordPress I just know it better than Blogger.
