Not providing details virtually guarantees no work around or fix will be forthcomming. The only hope you ever have of getting a viable work around or fix is to provide the details need to reproduce whatever issues you are experiencing.

Your comments above make me strongly suspect you're defining bug as not working as you expect rather than not working as documented.

Mathematica is a fairly complex piece of software. Far too complex to even begin to approach mastery of it in 2 hours. While it is possible you've encountered things not working as documented after 2 hours of working with Mathematica, it is far far more likely you've either misunderstood the documentation (which isn't all that clear in places) or run into one of the many instances where Mathematica does something in a much different way than other software you may have used.
