Why is My Blogger Template Freezing?

Does your blogger template keeps freezing your browser whenever you try to edit the template? Here's a question i kept seeking answers to several weeks ago when i encountered the same problem. What happens is that when you click on 'Template', then 'Edit HTML', due to some bugs or errors, the resulting page loads continuously until the browser you're accessing the page with pops out an error message and presents a dialogue box for you to choose if you want to close the page. One good thing about this is that it does not affect other tabs but only the tab on which the template was loading.
