Trouble downloading my Instructable PDF Answered
I have just published my first Instructable (https://www.instructables.com/id/Gorillapod-cradle-for-a-mobile-device-Pocket-PC-/) and I was trying to download a PDF copy to keep as a record. So I right-clicked the PDF link and selected "Saved Linked Content As..." in Opera 10.53. The save file dialog opened, but then my computer froze and I couldn't move my mouse. Every minute or so it executed my next command, so I pressed Escape and it closed the dialog about thirty seconds later.
Then I tried opening the file in Opera, and a similar thing happened. Then, I opened Internet Explorer 8 (crumbs, must have been bad) and the same thing happened, except that I left it running for about five minutes and it eventually got there. I noticed that whenever the computer froze, the CPU usage went to about 99%.
So it's not a browser thing. I had left the PDF options on defaults. Anybody else experiencing this problem?
