Admin tool: unable to edit/delete custom fields


I have a CES Source configured to index a database table and I've created approx. 3300 custom fields. The issue is that I cannot delete or edit a field from the Admin tool. When i click a field to edit, nothing happens and when i click the field again after a few seconds I get the exception below. If i open up Firebug to check if there are any js errors, the browser just locks up with no end. The same happens when I try to delete the field.

This seems to be related to the number of fields on a source, as I can open edit fields on other sources that have fewer custom fields.

The weird part is that I do not see any exceptions reported in the CES logs or the windows even log.

Any suggestions?

CES Version: 7.0 x64 Build 7914.0

If your problem is related to the number of fields, perhaps that the:

< add key="aspnet:MaxHttpCollectionKeys" value="50000" />

trick of that other question would help.
