Hi there,

Have you tried running firefox in safe mode?

It could be a corrupt add-on that is causing you problems.

Now we tried to make a new profile, but it also doesn't solve the problem...

We installed the old version 3.5 on a test pc and it does help , we can save documents..

Then we installed the new version 3.6.13 and we can't save anything --> it hangs....

Hi Taum00,

My only suggestion then would be to downgrade to 3.5 for the time being.

Hopefully somebody else has a solution cause I'm out of ideas.

Sorry and good luck
