5. Troubleshooting

5.1. Chrome freezes when trying to print from Google Drive

If you are using Google Chrome and it runs slowly or freezes or seems to cause your computer to freeze, this can be due to too many open Google Drive tabs.

Be sure to close Google Drive and Google Drive docs when not in use to preserve system resources and to avoid page errors.

Downloading copies of the docs to your computer and printing locally is also helpful.

5.2. Mail "Loading" Error

When using Mozilla Firefox, you may see an issue after you send an e-mail, the yellow "Loading..." status appears and never goes away, possibly leaving mail unable to be sent.

This issue is caused from the "Send in Background" Lab in GMail. To resolve this issue, please disbale this Lab in your Mail Settings.
