Seems I can't post blog content because of the "Sitebuilder Update" trigger

Twice today, in attempting to post into my blog using the specific combi of Mozilla Firefox 24.0 in WindowsXP Professional on a cable-modem interconnexion (in case you need this to aid in server debugging), said posts are being prevented from display with the trigger "Sitebuilder Update--We're updating Sitebullder. Save your site now, and we'll automatically upgrade you to the latest version."

I am not aware of any prior timely warning of such an upgrade as may preclude timely display of blog posts, or how long would be best to wait at this time before the update is finally completed and tested. In the interim, however, I would welcome your timely advice as to why the update is necessary, and what it involves ... as well as possible workarounds in the interim.

Hi Exaggerator,

That message occurs when we are doing an update though it sounds like terrible timing that it happened to you twice in one day!

Our engineers make updates to the Sitebuilder regularly both to maintain it and to release new features. Generally it should only make the Sitebuilder unavailable for a couple of minutes, often less. We strive to do releases during off peak times to reduce the number of customers we impact.

There's nothing that you can do to workaround our release schedule but I will pass your feedback on to our engineering team.
