Problems publishing on #4

Scratch the cookie theory. Doesn't work.

Now I'm trying something else out...if (if) you can publish on an older browser, the problem would appear to be browser-specific. It's just a bugger to test. Until you've blogged enough to really test it out.

I will leave you with a really nice episode of Doctor Who. Mind you I'm not the biggest Doctor Who fan, but some of the stuff is beyond excellent. Besides I need to test out my settings.

Okay! I've discovered a few things.

One is that my blog publishes fine in an earlier version of IE, when it won't publish in my (reasonably upgraded) versions of Firefox and IE. You might try using an older browser if you have one around.

Two is that when I turned on this setting in Firefox: "ask me every time," I got a boatload of requests from Blogger to modify cookies. I clicked "allow" each time, and it published without the nefarious "Your publish is taking longer than expected..." message.

It would appear to be a cookie issue of some sort. At least that's my theory du jour.

I finally got the opportunity to test this out: Problems publishing on

i.e. I tried clearing the cache when I saw this a couple of times:

It didn't work.

I got better results logging out, and logging back in again. Actually I deleted the cookie for, then logged back in, then published without any further problems.

I have no idea yet whether this is pure coincidence, but it's better than dorking around with it for hours.
