Firefox crashed: now unable to use WordPress visual editor

User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Post Posted May 13th, 2007, 5:46 am

I use Firefox 2.0 (Mac) as my primary browser and it crashed (closed without warning) a few days ago... since then, I've been unable to use the WordPress visual editor as there is no edit box shown between the Visual/Code tabs and the Save and Continue Editing/Save/Publish buttons. It works on another machine (so I can rule out the server) - something must have been corrupted when Firefox took a dive.

After <a href="">posting at the WordPress Support forums</a>, I've been directed here... has anybody seen anything like this before?

I've cleared the browser cache and disabled my plugins but no change.

Does anyone have any suggestions so that I can regain my ability to edit WordPress posts in Firefox?

TIA, Mark

What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

Thank you :-)

I created a new profile and copied across key settings. Now everything is fine again.
