Try clearing your browser's cookies and cache and trying again.  If that doesn't help try temporarily disabling any anti-virus or firewall software to see it that's stopping it.

Cheers Steegle. 

I've now set Chrome to block Google Sites from storing cookies (hopefully) - useful if that stop local page caching too as I keep coming up with a reversion, following an edit, to a cached page and having to refresh the page to see what it really looks like. I may have Windows firewall activated but the primary firewall's in the router. Anti-virus !!! nah - haven't installed one on any of my computers. The only virus I've had is Windows itself. Malware if ever there was such!! :)

If you block Google Sites from storing cookies you will probably stop Sites from working: you just need to clear cookies and cache when there's an issue, then Sites will create a new copy of cookie it needs.

Well there two other OSes you can use: Mac OS X (this is my first choice but the expensive route as it requires a Mac) and Linux that I and Google recommend, especially Ubuntu, as it's free and it's what a lot of Google employees use.

Yup - can't 'log in' to Sites to edit :( The problems are random one-offs.

Still on OS X - thought they'd be up to 12 by now ("B" ?!) No probs with the general workings of Apple OSes but the GUI's limited - the common comments relate to 1-button mice and window sizing only by dragging one corner. I've not looked at it for years though. Linux took be back 20 years - having to mount and unmout media manually. That's back to the days of using XPARK to park the hard drive heads prior to switching off. There's also the Sun Workstation option with its window-based GUI open-something. In the lead as far as optical mice with 3 buttons! Still, the GUI wasn't stable.

I will say I liked the Amiga GUI. In fact, I liked the Amiga full stop. It made the possibility of wiping all your files without realising, so easy. That, for me was the nail in the coffin for it but it has come out of retirement some times for video work.

The conclusion was that despite MS Windows not being very good, it's still better than the alternatives - despite MS making it worse with every reincarnation. Hence my wanting an upgrade for Windows 98SE - although actually, I've got used to XP - reverting to 98 for document scanning and printing - for compatibility with the appropriate hardware. XP will use the printer but it's tediously slow and the results aren't as good.

OS X has supported more that one mouse button for some time.

The latest version of OS X (Lion) supports resizing from all edges.

LOL you need to get up-to-date: download Ubuntu and burn it to a CD and you can try it by running it from the CD without having to install.  Did you bother reading the article I linked to?  There's a whole video by a Googler on how and why they use Linux, Ubuntu in particular.

Well that's only your opinion and it's based on out-of-date information: bring yourself up-to-date and you can make an informed choice rather than an uninformed choice.
