    Hi Barkley,

    That's most probably due to the lengthy form you have. To my knowledge the "saving" script keeps running on every changes of the field data so there could be a greater possibility for the form to freeze/hang up. For long forms, we'd suggest to prevent the "immediate" save of the data by unchecking the "Save on data changes". This might help.

    However, if the form keeps freezing, you can try this alternative method. How to Save Forms to Continue Later. This saves the data in the server not on the browser local storage, in other words the data can be accessed anywhere by calling the saved session. Make sure to disable the the Autofill feature in your form first, the one you are currently using.

    Hope this helps. Thank you!
