Add a link fails
There are some Internet Explorer issues right now in the editor. If you can at least temporarily use Firefox or Chrome, the issue will go away, and hopefully they will get the IE issue fixed soon (the editor is developed by a third-party so they have to wait for them to fix it).
Aha, thanks for your quick reply. I’m sorry, I hadn’t noticed that was going on.
It’s happening with my posts too, and it’s driving me crazy!! I imagine a lot of us are affected – I hope WordPress will let us know when it’s fixed!!!

I too have been having this problem. A quick search brought me here and I can solve my problem quickly.
These are the workarounds that some have successfully used:
if you are on windows XP and cannot then even if you have IE8 upgrade your IE8 version
insert links by using the HTML editor instead of the Visual editor;
copy and paste links.
