I have tried the following...
1. I tried a "trick" sent to me by someone at support help...
"It seems that some parts of the visual editor are not loading.
Here's a little trick that may bring them back:
Go to your profile and check the "Always use https..." checkbox.
Try editing a post - make sure you wait a little while when first going to the editor so that all the files are loaded.
If that works - just untick the box in your profile again"
Nothing happened (ie. Didn't work)
2. I logged out, cleared cache and cookies, logged back in and still not fixed.
3. I logged in using firefox and encountered the same issue.
So still no luck.
Is there anything that I can do? Like re install wordpress or will I lose informations or is it not installed locally?
as a side question - can any of you drag your mouse over text to highlight it and copy it whilst you are in this forum? when you are writing a reply? I dont seem to be able to but I can do it as usual on all other sites.
