Project freezing whenever tab switched

My browser / operating system: ChromeOS 9460.60.0, Chrome 59.0.3071.91, Flash 26.0 (release 0)

Guys, I could use a bit of help. Whenever I'm in the project editor, and I tab out, even for a little bit, the editor tab freezes. I do not understand what is going on. Also, not like anybody would use this info, I am just using ChromeOS because it is my school PC. I normally use Windows, but I am not right now.

Hmm, this happens to me on my Windows using Chrome and my iOS using Puffin.

It really is annoying, I have to refresh the page every time I switch tabs

Yeah, I have to refresh, too. I hope somebody from the Scratch team can help us… I dunno if they will, though.

Project freezing whenever tab switched

My browser / operating system: ChromeOS 9460.73.1, Chrome 59.0.3071.134, Flash 26.0 (release 0)

Chromebooks, two different models, haven't tried on my Windows PC yet. But both Chromebooks when using Scratch are fine. Until I switch tabs, then go back to the previous tab. Everything is frozen. I can reload the page but then I lose what wasn't previously saved. I noticed this the other day when helping with the forums. I created a quick example, went back to reread what they wrote, and went back to my tab, frozen, lost the project.

Just happened again on my newer CB, listed above, going back to Griffpatch Platform Tutorial and my current project. Frozen. I will check Windows running Chrome later on.

Has anyone else experienced this?My browser / operating system: ChromeOS 9460.73.1, Chrome 59.0.3071.134, Flash 26.0 (release 0)

Same problem here, but I'm on Windows 10, and I'm using Firefox.

Also, reloading doesn't fix it for me.

EDIT:

Apparently, the problem is mouse input for me. For some reason, it always says the mouse is at -240, and, big surprise, right clicking on stuff makes the little right click menu show up at the left of the screen, regardless of the x position of the mouse. However, the Y pos is normal.

(Windows NT 10.0, Firefox 55.0, Flash 26.0 )

Only happens to me if I'm tabbed out for too long. If you need to change tabs, minimize and put them next to each other so they're both still open, seems to work for me.

Ding dong, your opinion is wrong.
(or maybe it's not. it depends what your opinion is and what it's about…)

I think this is a Flash issue - Flash freezes if you switch away, normally. I don’t know what kind of trickery fixes this for Scratch, but apparently the fix is not infallible.

Basically I’d suggest never switching away if you can help it - or you’re gonna have a few problems.~~~~

No, for me, the editor doesn't freeze, but it stops reading the mouse X input correctly.
Also, it took longer for me to put screenshots on imageshack (because imgur is apparently considered so evil here).

Fix: Press the Fullscreen button so the screen can refresh.

Hi, I'm an individual who sometimes makes good games/animations on Scratch.
I also have two other accounts: this one, and this one.

Doesn't work. Fullscreen button goes through the same bug that everything else in the editor goes through.
Outside of the editor, the fullscreen button locks the project into fullscreen and activates the same bug, too.

Apparently, the problem DOES NOT persist on any browser other than my main one.

Yeah. I've been getting the same problem.
But for me, let's say I'm on the sounds tab and I press the play button while my screen is frozen, it'll still play the sound. So I can still interact with everything but my screen is frozen

Just your casual Eddhead passing by~

This happens to me ALL. THE. TIME. I've noticed that it only seems to happen when I'm currently typing anything into a block input and I switch there and back though. If I'm not doing that, it's usually fine. Though I will say I've been saving a lot more often recently.
