Here’s a great tip that worked for me to help speed up how quickly Dreamweaver CS6 opens files for the first time:
“When you try to open a document in Dreamweaver CS6, it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to several minutes for Dreamweaver to open it. Dreamweaver stops responding until the document opens.
Disable Dreamweaver’s Resolve To IP Address feature using the instructions for your operating system.
- Quit Dreamweaver.
- In the Finder, navigate to the following location: /Users/Your User Name/Library/Preferences
- Open the Adobe Dreamweaver Prefs file in TextEdit.
- Locate the [REMOTE DOWNLOAD] section in the file.
- At the bottom of this section, add a line that says: resolveremoteurltoipaddress=FALSE
- Save file.
