This blog has been quiet for the past month mostly because I wasn’t able to edit photos without deleting the whole blog post and starting over. This was exceedingly annoying, because lots of times I want to resize a photo, or relocate it within the copy. For yet-to-be-determined reasons, that function stopped working altogether sometime between my previous post and the first of the year. I checked the WordPress discussion forums, but didn’t find any solutions that worked for me, and frankly, I was too busy with family stuff and one particular client to give it much attention.
Then in January, I noticed that Safari was crashing a lot, sometimes three and four times a day. Consulting the Apple discussion boards, I wondered if the problem was a conflict between Safari and a plug-in Older Son installed or downloaded while he was using my computer to apply for graduate school (and check Fantasy Football…).
However, yesterday an email discussion among Working Writers revealed that Safari, which I have used as my default browser completely without problems for more than four years, has gone weird for several other writers in the past month, crashing at random intervals no matter what version of OSX they’re using. Can’t lay all of that on Older Son’s late-night forays into cyberspace! (Besides, he’s always used Firefox for his browser.)
Wondering if it was not WordPress that had gone twitchy, but Safari, this week I went back to Firefox for my main browser. I felt a pang when switching, but I’m happy to report that it worked. I now can upload images to my blog, resize them, and move them around. I also can browse all day long without a single crash.
Any other Safari users experiencing similar glitches with Safari?
