I installed parity wallet and deposited 5 ether. Now I am trying to transfer it to another address and "parity signer:pending" appeared and it is going on for three hours and on.
How long does it take to transfer an ether to another address?
It takes only seconds to send a transaction, and only a few minutes for the transfer to finalise.
What you need to do is use the Secure Transaction Signer to authorise the transaction. The documentation is sparse, but this is what you should see: https://github.com/paritytech/parity/wiki/Parity-Wallet.
The Secure Transaction Signer is a feature of the Parity wallet, but some people prefer to use the official Ethereum wallet (Mist). It is possible to use Mist with Parity.
To use Mist, you must first run parity with the
--geth flag like so:
parity --geth. (If you are on Windows, just modify the shortcut
parity.exe --geth, it works the same).
Now open Mist, and you can send transactions without the additional transaction signing step.
