Thanks Mayuri i have a problem which sounds similar, and support told me the same thing, but it didn't cure my issue, so much i don't even know the problem anymore.

Nicely done. I've never had to go through all these steps. I've had this problem 3 times, but always emptying my cookies and caches, then a reboot solved the problem.

But I'm bookmarking this training, in case I have to go the extra mile(s) like you did, thanks a bunch!

Thanks, I had this problem months ago after installing the CKeditor, I have now a test website, where I have installed the Tiny MCE advanced, and I use it there to create all kind of stuff, then I just copy my creations to my real website, that works terrific:)
