Loading indicator never goes away.

I went in to edit this earlier and I clicked on the page / pencil icon to edit. Having made the change I clicked the save button and window with an animated 'busy' icon and the text 'Loading...' popped up, and never goes away. Using a new tab I can see the update has in fact been made so there appears to be a hiccup with the code.
Also, on a site related note FF Web Developer Tools shows this:
Quote
Expected 'important' but found 'johnny'.  Expected ';' or '}' to terminate declaration but found 'johnny'.  Declaration dropped.

error for default.css line 451, among others for the css files used in this page 'Start new topic'

This has always been the case - only on the quick edit - I have no idea why but a page refresh does fix it
However I have always seen that the change has happened even though the busy icon is still there

Thanks Oldjim I did suspect it had history as I assumed I wasn't the first to notice.

Re: Loading indicator never goes away.

A bit late to the party on this. Isn't this just one of the issues from http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,128159.0.html ?
I still get that periodically, but I'm not sure what a "quick edit" is?

Have I missed something Embarrassed  I thought there was only one "edit" - the Modify button?
I can also get it some times on a normal post  Shocked

Well that's one of the standard workarounds, but can occasionally result in a double post Shocked

Re: Loading indicator never goes away.

Embarrassed Thank you Jim, I had completely forgotten about / "switched off" to that a very long time ago as I always use the "Modify" button as that gives direct access to Rich Text, Smileys and Attachments whereas "Quick Edit" doesn't.
I can get the issue even using the "Modify" button.
