When I try to preview my web page using Previw in Browser I get the follwoing message. Is this a bug? If I close DW and reopen it, the preview works fine.

That's  called Real-Time Preview which works sometimes and sometimes not.  You can turn it off in your Preferences and use static browser preview instead.   See screenshot.

Static browser preview is exactly the same as old fashioned Preview in Browser.

 

Real-Time Preview has to connect to Adobe's web servers first. Real-time preview allows you to preview pages in the browser or on mobile devices and view code changes in real time.
