The problem is usually caused by errors in the markup. Have a look at this Showing results for http://specktaker.com/salt.html - Nu Html Checker which shows that there are unclosed elements in the salt.html document.
That's not the issue, I had already corrected those issues that show up on the validators (other than the tables which he wants to use the old things he had on his old site even though not responsive). The tables were on his old site and he had no problems with them before so I'll assume those are not causing the issue as well.
Do you think it's because he's on CS6 PC version and I'm on CC2015 Mac version? (PC and Mac not really making a difference I don't think, but I've had a few people tall me that the CS6 version isn't very responsive compatible. Do you think that's it or is it something else in the code.
Just so you know, the issues with the stray Div tags, the duplicate Footer and Main tags are taken care of already and were prior to posting here, but I didn't realize he didn't upload those updated pages yet is all. He has tried editing those updated pages though and still crashes as soon as he hits the refresh for the Preview. I'm guessing turning off the preview may prevent the crashes somewhat, but have to wait for him to return home from a short trip to test this as well. Of course even if that works, it's not a fix, and it's a deal breaker for him as he wants me to do another site, but if he cannot edit it, he will not do so.
I created the site with a 3rd party software and really have no idea if anything in the code there could or would create this issue. I've used it for many sites and it has worked very well for them, but ... this is the first site that the client is insisting on doing the editing themselves, so I don't know if there were any issues prior to this or not. So what I did was send the client a freshly created template mockup that DW created for me for a New > Responsive > can't recall which template it was. I'm going to have him try editing that and see if it still crashes. I can at least rule out whether or not it's CoffeeCup's software code causing the issue or not that way I would think, and whether or not it is a Responsive issue with CS6 as well.
Any other ideas while I wait on this?
Which page is the problem page?
It would be the Salt Water and Fresh Water pages that he will do editing on, but I imagine the home page will give him issues as well, I'll have to check that when he gets home.
It might be easier if I give the temp address for the corrected pages since the client isn't home yet to get them uploaded lol. Here's the corrected pages that had already been sent to him and that he tried already and still crashed him:
If you check those pages through the validators, you'll see that those errors have already been corrected, but unfortunately they didn't fix the issue for the client crashes.

There are still validation errors.
I have loaded the file into my CS6 and it all behaves well. The only thing I can suggest is that Bootstrap may be causing the problem. To find out remark (<!-- --> all the links to css and js out and see if that has any effect.
If CS6 does now not crash try adding the links back in, one by one, to see which one causes the problem.
It may also be an idea to have CDN hosted files like
My Client has returned home, and has since uploaded the correct files.
The good news is that he is able to edit the DW created template that I sent him to test without any problems at all. The bad news is that we still don't know what part of the uploaded site is causing his issues.
So far as we can see, all of the errors are coming from the Bootstrap CSS which is currently Bootstrap 2. The program I use has this built into it, but unfortunately it's falling behind as the versions have increased for Bootstrap since then, we're hoping soon for an upgrade, but I won't hold my breath that we'll get version 4 when it's ready.
Anyways, if someone could please check this page and see if there's anything else I'm missing? Most of it is Bootstrap stuff, some of it is Unknown Vendor stuff, that's all I can find in there that would be messing anything up.
@Ben: I will see if I can get him to try that today and see if it makes a difference, but I'm pretty sure it's in the Bootstrap since the pages I sent him have no CSS errors in my custom file. Also the only other problem with having hosted CDN or CSS or any other files is that other servers go down, or decide to stop supporting that particular version of file you're using and then your site stops working, so I'd rather not if I don't have to. I will have him try that though just to see if we can find out if it's the Bootstrap generated by the program or just Bootstrap 2 in general which gives us a little more to go on as well. Thanks much for your suggestion.
