IE7 Locks Up when saving Web Archive, Single File (*.MHT) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have installed IE7 7.05730.11 on a laptop and desktop system, both running XP Pro. On about 10% of web page Saves - as an MHT file only - IE7 locks up, while showing 0% of document is saved. Cancels of this dialog do not work immediately, and sometimes never. XP continues to function normally and I can open other instances of IE7 while the original lockup continues. The Save on some web pages never locks up, others pages lock up occasionally (one time), and still others lock up consistently (every time). Are there any solutions or updates on the way? How can I report this serious bug to Microsoft?

  • I get exactly the same - it's a total pain in the neck and seems to happen without rhyme or reason.  You never know when it will occur but suddenly, out of the blue, IE7 locks up when you try and save a page.  I've reluctantly started using Firefox, which is a little slower but saving pages is so easy.  I'm surprised more people are not shouting out about this problem.
