Specifications: I am using Math Stack Exchange in Google Chrome, on my laptop which is connected to the internet by an ethernet cable. I am located just outside of Paris, France. Edit: Google Chrome Version 17.
Problem: For some reason, while typing out an answer on Math Stack Exchange, or editing an answer, the site will freeze. (Similarly for the meta.math page) Google chrome itself does not freeze, I can open other tabs and visit other sites. I can open a tab and visit the same page, closing the frozen page, but the problem is I lose the answer I was typing out. Sometimes a partly saved version will still be there, but the most recent part will be lost. (Or all of the edit will be lost) This is extremely frustrating, and on more then one occasion I have just altogether abandoned the attempt to provide an answer.
Cause: Unfortunately, I don't even know how to recreate the error. It seems to happen almost randomly, sometimes I can go through an edit or writing an answer without anything happening. I am not sure if this is Google Chromes fault, as this doesn't happen for any other webpage I use, and Chrome seems to be running normally.
Any help would be appreciated, this has been happening for about 3 weeks, and I find myself answering less questions from inconvenience.
Edit According to this post, as of February 13, 2012, Google Chrome version 17 is unsupported by Stack Exchange. However, according to this, Google Chrome was updated, and version 17 became the stable current version on February 8th 2012. This is roughly the time these problems started occurring. It seems plausible that this could be causing the problem.
