When ever I am on line reading email, or a forum I get the spinning circle and everything goes a little white, like whitewash over color, can't scroll up or down , can't close out a window or anything I just have to wait it out, it just happened after I wrote the word out. What is causing it? It only happens when Sea Monkey is open, Doesn't happen with IE or Firefox.

RE: Help with a problem

Are you using the latest version of SeaMonkey? If no, then update it. If yes, do you have any add-ons installed with it? If yes, you could try uninstalling them to see if the situation improves. One of them might be causing a conflict. Another option would be to uninstall SM and then install it again. Nothing like a clean slate to get a fresh perspective.

RE: Help with a problem

Yes I am using the latest version of SEA Monkey. It started after updating to the new version.This morning I got the spinning circle just after opening Sea Monkey. Didn't get to go up to the tool bar to open up the email portion before it started spinning.

You might have to move backwards until SeaMonkey address it if it's there issue.....

RE: Help with a problem

Hi Zep,
I did un-install the latest version , installed the 2.1 version I had in my Downloads folder. Then I got an email from File Hippo that a newer version of Sea Monkey so I downloaded it from File Hippo and installed it. So Far I haven't had the spinning Circle issue yet.

RE: Help with a problem

I still have the spinning circle problem . I am beginning to think it is a Windows problem. I don't even have to start surfing the web before it happens, just opening up Sea Monkey I got the spinning circle.

RE: Help with a problem

Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

Download TFC by OldTimer From here click Here
to your desktop.

Double-click TFC.exe to run it.

Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator

TFC will close all programswhen run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin

* Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
* Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
* Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.

Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.

RE: Help with a problem

I downloaded TFC and ran it after I had closed all programs . It cleared about 856MB of temp files . Then it said it needed to reboot computer so I allowed it to reboot. But after it was back , I opened up Sea Monkey and went to the knitting forum I go to and got the spinning circle again. I do not know what is causing it
