It's not common, but you've told us nothing about your system. We need to know your version of InDesign, you operating system version, and exactly what's happening.
I'm working on a late 2013 iMac with IOS 10.9.5. and using the latest version of InDesign CC.
This problem started a while ago where I would have trouble creating a certain link. Now simply opening the Hyperlinks palette is enough to crash InDesign within a couple of seconds without me having to do anything else.
Thanks for taking an interest in my problem here, I really appreciate any help I can get with it.
