Alert! Google Chrome May Be Incompatible with WP 3.5.1
A few weeks ago, I started using Google Chrome browser instead of Firefox, which I have used for years.
I had also just found a new web host who did a great job migrating my existing WP blogs for free. I also installed a few new WP blogs to work on, all in 3.5.1.
At first, I thought it was a problem with the widgets; then with WP; then possibly corrupted instals. I was giving my web host grief, for which I have apologized, because the problem turns out to be Google Chrome!
Chrome misbehaves inside WP 3.5.1 on the widgets (sidebar) page. Chrome will NOT click on “Delete” or “Close”, or additional commands on widgets installed in the sidebar.
Fortunately, my old sites were still up, so I went over to test, and I found that clicking on widgets didn’t work there, either, which had never happened there before.
Only one thing had changed between my old sites and my new host. I had given up Firefox and started using Chrome.
I launched Firefox, and was immediately able to edit, close and delete widgets again — it was Chrome that had been the problem, not the instals, not WP.
Has anybody else experienced this problem with Chrome? If so, have you found a way to fix it? I would prefer to stay with Chrome, as I find Firefox a bit slow.
I’m using the current Chrome in Windows XP, Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3, with Net Frameworks up to 4, and Intel(R) Pentium(R) III Mobile CPU 800 MHz 526 MHz. 256 MB of RAM.
Thanks, if you have a solution.
