Seems like for about 5 or 6 months, my DW will freeze up for a brief time.... "not responding" in other words. As this is the message thats displayed. Not only does this message display at the top of DW window, but in popup windows sometimes, for instance when I am uploading files to my server, the window will freeze as well.
Maybe it has something to do with an extension I downloaded awhile back...Konductor I think it is. because everytime I close DW now, a js error message comes up saying something about "getDocumentDom: argument number 1 is invalid" and has a filepath of "C:\Program Files(x86)\Adobe DreamweaverCS5\Configuration\Shutdown\KonductorShutdown.htm"
I went in a deleted my the .dat file as suggested by David Powers in his FAQ here in the DW forum, but just as soon as I opened DW, I got the same two issues.
Is there anything else I can try short of completely deleting my personal config file? If I do that what will be the results?
Thanks in advance!
Can I simply disable it, and if so how? I've never even used it. Or do I need to uninstall it? Thanks
for the reply.
Actually now that I think of it, I installed the same CS5 Master Collection on my desktop as well, and did not install the Konductor extension and have similar "not responding" issues with it as well. So I'm thinking its not that, but will disable anyway to check!
And nevermind, The Extension Manager is where I disable, which I have done and will test the next few hours or couple of days. In the meantime, if anyone else has had this issue, and can provide more ideas, thanks again!
Well I didnt disable my other extensions. I have the html5 extension pack, the html5 IE js fix, the Adobe Air ext, and the browserlab extension. The DW on my desktop has no extensions at all, and it still "freezes up sometimes. When this happens, it will "unfreeze" itself in about a minute. Its just very aggravating, especially when my employer is standing over my sholder wanting to see some code or wanting to view a page live in a browser.
Do your files/sites use externally hosted resources (like, say, goolge analytics? Or a hosted jQuery script?). This can cause some lagginess as Dreamweaver "fetches" this external material to be able to use its "related files" feature.
During development you can comment out those external resources until you're ready for testing (and then remove the comments to enable them).
Ok still testing this issue. I have disabled ALL extensions and still DW CS5 freezes multiple times a day. Maybe someone could point me to where I can submit a customer support ticket to Adobe?
I have no external js files, or any files for that matter. Just a moment ago, it froze just from trying to upload a single file to my remote. Then it froze earlier just becuase I clicked on my component tab in the application panel.
