I hope you can help me, too.
I also have a problem with the widgets. I can add them to the sidebar and footer areas, but I CANNOT edit them - I don't get the menu where you can find below 'save', 'delete' or 'close'; I can't add images, texts, headlines, my gravatar isn't shown. My 'category' and 'archive' widget doesn't show the number of posts (because I can't edit it).
Another thing: The new page for the site stats (views per country) can't be load.
I got the information from the WordPress team to use the NEW Internet Explorer, but I still have Windows XP, I can't upgrade my Explorer; and I don't want to use the Firefox browser.
Am I really forced to get a new browser to use & enjoy my WordPress blog + its features the way like I did before, or do I have these problems due to other things i.e. maintainance by the WordPress team?
Thanks in advance for your reply & help!!!
