I've tried a number of settings, with no success. Then I clicked the little R, and it switched to reader mode. Now I can't switch it back and there are no menu bars anymore. Quiting and restarting doesn't even get me back a menu bar. I'm stuck - with nothing.
A) How can I switch it back to editing mode?
B) How can I figure out why it is bombing?
Can't help with Point A, but regarding Point B, I had the EXACT same problem yesterday with BD. It gave me the same message, and did the same thing. I had to de-install it and then, instead of going with the full release update, I used the beta one on the Wiki page, the last one dated 5-30-2007. It worked fine after that.
I don't know why it hung up. I run Windows XP with no service pack. All I know is that the full release update won't work, but the 5-3-07 one will.
