I cannot save settings in Podium browser
- When I try to change columns to 5  it works but then when saved it than goes back to 3 columns. 

- if I choose 5 columns then close setting panel without saving it will still be 5 for session only. If I then go back to setting panel and choose 4 columns and save - it again reverts to 3 columns so...

it looks like the save command has something tying to 3 columns. 


I noticed you were about to upgrade browser so want to sneak this in before update.

Browser problems are generally linked to browser settings. If something screws around with your browser, it will most likely screw with Podium Browser.

Some of these you can fix by clearing your cache - ugh...

Hate doing this because you lose your saved website settings. Unfortunately sometimes it's the only way.

Which browser and do you know which settings are relavant? This bug has always been this way for me btw. It's not a new issue. Firefox is my primary browser but I would assume this would use the ie engine.

I think it's IE settings on Windows and Safari on Mac

Hi Jlo, just saw this thread.  This is an actual bug, not linked to IE or Safari settings -- the only workaround is the one you've already discovered, which is to just switch the column and close the settings dialog without saving.  But you do have to reset it every session.

There is less pagination in the new version, so skimming through the categories should be faster.  I don't think there are even column settings in the update, so this will probably never be fixed.

Haha it really is the worst!  Luckily with FF you can remove the cache and cookies for a single site only. I'd assume Chrome/Safari have a similar options.

Thanks Justin. I'll just suck it up. I really just wanted to bring it up since I saw you were coming with a new version and therefore this is the perfect time to address it.
