I saw a lot of discussions on this topic, so I tried some of the things that worked for other sufferers:
I removed and restored preferences.
I un-installed and re-installed DreamWeaver CS5.5
These had no effect.
I have no browser plug-ins to remove.
I have no HP software.
I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.8.4 and DreamWeaver CS 5.5.
Anybody got anything else for me to try?
I really miss GoLive ...
Can you check out the solutions in this doc and let us know if you still have problems?
Thanks Preran, but I looked at this help doc before I posted.
I don't have HP RocketEngine, HP Photo Creations or any other HP software installed on my Mac.
I have no plug-ins installed in either of my browsers (Safari and Chrome).
Oh --- I failed to mention in my original post that I also repaired permissions, which also did not help.
Thanks for the suggestion, Preran --- can you think of anything else to try?
Have you tried clearing the cache file?
Don't know if it would have any affect on this, but it is something that would not get affected on a plain old reinstall (you would need to use the cleaner tool IIRC)...
Thanks for the suggestion --- I don't get to bring my own computer to work, so I'll have to check that tonight when I go home --- I presume you're talking about browser cache files, right?
I'll post after I try it.
Quit Dreamweaver. Find all the files listed below and move to desktop or delete them.
Bhawna and Preran:
I'll have to wait until I get home tonight to try the things you've suggested, and it may need to wait until tomorrow -- as soon as I've found out whether you've solved my problem I'll post the results here.
Thanks again, Larry
I've realized that there's one step I neglected --- over the weekend I opened this same website with a different computer, running the same version of DreamWeaver, and DreamWeaver crashed immediately, same as on my laptop.
This ordeal may have occurred simply because something was wrong with my newly-constructed website, not with DreamWeaver. I will, as soon as possible, start a new website to see if starting over solves my problem.
As soon as I've tried this experiment I'll post the results.
Reset my PRAM, and it did not solve my problem.
Resetting PRAM went out with OS 9 and "Classic" envorinment, niether of which will work with Intel processors. It's a useless step anymore, much more easily accomplished by rebooting.
