I did a new install of WP for a new site. I'm using the popular theme called "Responsive" as "active". When I install a new theme I still don't get any messages back from the system beyond the initial one "... getting xxx.zip".
I don't have any active plugins except Contact Form 7 and even without that (using 20-11 theme I get no messages.
I'm on an iMac, Lion, using latest FireFox.
The browser icon spins and spins and when it stops the theme is installed... but no progress messages. It also takes far longer than I think it should.
I set permissions for WP to 777 in all folders, etc, but a few would not let me... different owner or something.
I'm to the point where I'll just do all theme installs and upgrades manually... but this is crazy. I wonder if it is a problem with 3.4.1 or something? I know it I used to get progress messages... but can't remember when it stopped.
Anyone have any ideas at all?
