Hey! I updated Lr to 3.3. Since then, after a certain period of time open, it doesn't save any version nor edit I do, and if I try close it, with every command, it doesn't.
Everytime I have to close it through the activity monitor.
Please help!

It sounds like you may have a bad install. Try resetting you preferences first: 

Reset Procedure:

1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.

I have the same problem. Updated it through app store for mac. Super annoying issues. Also it suddenly crashes/freezes and it is in general slowing down the computer. It has to be something really bad with this version!!

Ale, Sara, just try uninstalling Lightroom, rebooting, then reinstalling it. It could be a bad install.
