I'm at WordPress.org using the Lifestyle theme (both the newest versions and the latest updated version of Genesis), a completely fresh install without any plug-ins or modifications at all. I'm doing a site redesign (partially because this problem was already occurring) so I have the new, blank site set up). I'm using Chrome, but I've tried making the changes with Firefox and IE and nothing there either.
I can see the stylesheet and type in changes to it, but when I try to submit the changes, nothing happens. According to the number on the lower left of my browser, it just hangs at 56% and does nothing - I don't ever get an error message because it never loads anything.
I can edit my Theme Functions file, no problem. I changed my Speak Now wording and it went through immediately.
I contacted my host and they don't know what it is. When I originally contacted them when it was (and still is) doing it on my live site, they thought it was probably a plug-in, but I don't have any activated on this new site.
I can use WP's own regular CSS editing feature, but even that's iffy. I have to use !important! in there sometimes and others, it just hasn't worked at all.
My current live site: http://basiasbookshelf.com where it's also happening.
I know this sounds ridiculously dumb, but my host doesn't have an ftp option set up for me to use. If I have a problem, I email them the issue and the change I want to make and they make it for me. They haven't been able to do anything either. I use EsoSoft, btw.
Have you tried a local install of your theme? Can you make changes in the CSS there that stick?
If that works, then perhaps just make all your changes locally and email the amended CSS file to your host to overwrite your current CSS.
Just my 2c worth,
