Why does nothing seem to happen when I click 'confirm' on a new add?

When I have finished making an add and click 'confirm', it flashes up 'saving' at the top of the screen but then nothing else seems to happen, it doesn't seem to have processed the add and nothing shows up in my account history. I have tried again a few times this week but get the same thing every time.

 

Thanks

Hi matthewrhind, and welcome to the forum.  Can I ask for some clarification please?  Where are you seeing a "confirm" button/link?  Creating an Ad ends with a "Save ad" button, not a confirm link...

 

Can you explain exactly what you're doing please?

Same thing is happening to me. It doesn't say "confirm", though. It says "Save Ad". Nothing happens for me. Nothing indicating that it's processing or anything. Like it's just ignoring me. Great. Then I try to go see if it's saved somewhere I can look, like maybe an "ads submitted" or "ads awaiting approval" section - of course there is none of this to be found. Loving Google more and more every day.

Please excuse my cynicism but dealing with stuff like this from Google in every aspect of my life is really getting old. I would sincerely appreciate any help you can offer.

Just went back to try it again and now it works. I love how glitchy and unreliable Google's own systems are on Google's own browser, on Google's own operating system.
