  1. On my "new post" window, the "Categories" and "Tags" controls aren't working. If I click on "add tag" or "most used," nothing happens. This is a new issue.

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are, please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If you are not successful let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.

  3. I was using IE9, and I think I found the problem. I recently activated the browser's Tracking Protection. When I switched it off, the problems went away, and buttons and things like stats worked normally again. I don't know the exact reason why Tracking Protection should cause problems.

    Thanks!

    That's it private browsing mode can cause the issue you experienced. It's good to know you have resolved this. Best wishes for happy blogging.
