The other day I decided to go ahead and upgrade from Version: 126.96.36.199 to 5.2.5.
After I did so, files opened painfully slow. Most noticeable on large spreadsheets. I have one particular file that has a lot of history in it. When I would go to open it, I would stare at a blank screen for a good 30 to 45 seconds before the file came up. I never had that issue on my old version.
My fix was to uninstall the 5.2.5 and reinstall 188.8.131.52 - problem gone - everything now loads like it did before the upgrade.
Not sure what’s happening in the 5.2.5 but something’s amiss. I am not running a “state of the art” computer, but it’s not weak either. running an i5 with 8 gigs RAM and 3.30 ghz cpu, on Windows 7 pro.
So what might have happened?
