Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm trying to save changes on iD that I made (just some building outlines, nothing big) and whenever I hit save it flashes the "Connecting to OpenStreetMap" for a second and then an about:blank tab opens up, nothing after that. Any help would be appreciated, thank you! (I'm very much a beginner if you can't tell already)

Windows 10, Google Chrome, iD

Assuming https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/85319021 was you, you may simply actually have/had an issue connecting to the front end OSM servers. Does it actually download data when you pan the map display in iD?

@SimonPoole Yes, that was me. And that seems to be the problem... although at the time I was connected to the internet on my end so I have no idea what could have caused it. When I panned around it seemed like everything was loading in fine, it was only when I saved it gave me that problem of not being able to save. Edit: I will try saving something to see if the problem fixed itself overnight.

Looks like waiting overnight fixed the problem... must have just been a hiccup or something. Thanks for responding in a timely manner!
