When I try to apply tags it seems I can only do a handful of books before the site becomes unresponsive.  Other websites I have open are fine.  It is just PBS that stalls out on me.  I have to restart my computer to fix the issue.  Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Yes, thought it was just me.  Does it not only on tags, but other things too.  I just start over.  Pat

Pat, on what other things does it happen?  If I was still on dial-up i would have chalked it up to the slow connection, but I'm on DSL now so speed isn't a problem.

Mary, your kitties are so cute!  As you can see from my avatar  I have a tabby too and your tabby kitty reminded me of him when he was little.

Thanks Michelle!

I would try using Firefox if you have it downloaded now.  DO NOT download the 6/30/09 version (3.5) there are some known javascript problems and they are working on a patch.

They are supposed to have a patch ready soon.  Since PBS runs a LOT of Javascript, I put off downloading it until the patch is ready.  The link below has more details.

Not java - javascript.  Two different things.   PBS is designed/programmed for Firefox.
