I am trying to start a new worksheet. Every time I hit "New Worksheet", one of my already created worksheets opens up, but the title is now "Untitled" and if I do "Discard and Quit", then my previously created file still shows the title "Untitled". That's a bit weird and makes this much harder to use. Am I doing something wrong, or is it a bug?

I'm using Sage 4.7 in Windows 7 through Virtual Box.

Update: The problem was in Firefox 5. But, I closed it and opened it again and it worked fine. And, IE9 worked fine. So, no idea!

Wow, that's bad. It's conceivable that there's some weird default, but I am very interested in hearing what happens here. Unfortunately, not many devs have easy access to Windows boxes, and even fewer with Win 7. Does it matter what browser you use?

@kcrisman I am using Firefox 5.0. I will try IE9 later, but I am running something right now and I don't want to risk messing it up!

Thanks - though I doubt that IE will be better than FF for Sage, given what the developers mostly use :)

@kcrisman The update is that IE9 worked fine, and I closed Firefox 5 and opened it again and it worked fine.

Huh. Well, update here if you ever encounter this again. Once it's reproducible, it's much easier to track down. Thanks!

Sage 4.4 and Sage 4.7 under Firefox 9.0.1 is doing something similar to me right now. Whenever I hit 'new worksheet' it just pulls up the last worksheet I created. I tried updating Firefox but it hasn't helped.

I'm using Mandriva Linux 2010, which for some reason wants to use Sage 4.4 by default. But both are giving me this issue... Am I only allowed to have 20 worksheets or something?

No. Is it perhaps a cache problem? As to the 4.4, is it possible that the older Sage comes earlier in your PATH, or that you've made an alias for it? Just a wild guess, probably wrong.

Oh, I just meant that installing Sage via the package installer on Mandriva gives you Sage 4.4. I installed Sage 4.7 myself after I realized this wavelet module (pywavelets) wasn't working correctly. But I haven't cut ties with 4.4 completely. I use 4.7 if I remember to. :)

Yes, it was a cache issue! I don't understand why. Thanks kcrisman! I cleared the cache in my browser and I can create new worksheets again.

I don't understand why either, but sometimes this sort of thing happens. Glad it worked!
