I spent a couple of hours tonight trying to isolate the problem (which is more widespread than I had realized) of my blog causing Firefox on the Mac to freeze. It wasn’t the most recent entry that was at fault at all. It seemed I was offending Firefox/Mac in several ways. As nearly as I can tell, Firefox/Mac:
- Doesn’t like it when I have italics in the title of a post
- Doesn’t like it (sometimes) when I have an Amazon ad for a book in a post
- Doesn’t like it (sometimes) when I use blockquote in text
It took a while to root all of those out, or at least those going back a little over a year. None of them caused trouble in Firefox/Windows or Safari/Mac (that I know of). Anyway, this blog no longer freezes my wife’s Mac, which is a hopeful sign.
I’d appreciate hearing from anyone who has had trouble viewing my blog in the past. If you could leave a comment letting me know if you can view it now, that would be very helpful.
