ok so I'm having issues.

I want to add a web part to the home page of a site that displays a particular view. preferably filtered by a field and the current user.

But I can't even get that far.

I can add a list view web part but I am unable to modift it in any way. I also can't exit edit mode.

In order to delete the list view web part, I have to close my browser and edit the page and do nothing else - just delete. That's the only thing that will work.

What's going on?
