    I’m running fully updated Ubuntu 12.10 and Firefox 17. I’ll try those few tips and see what happens. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks, everyone.

    I’m having the same problems with the new changes– only sideways. The new pane they’ve created is too wide for the screen. It attempts to show me literally every image in my library when I’m attempting to upload and view new ones instead, which leads to slowdowns and sometimes browser crashes. Also, it will not ever save the setting when I put a link in the image (so people are directed to my website when they click on an image). I have to manually go back sometimes three times for each image in a post to save this setting. It also does really weird things formatting, like not saving the alignment, choosing its own magnification, etc.
    I’m old school: Win XP Pro 64-bit, current Firefox 17.0.1

    @cosmictigger – I’m not seeing your editor window at anything other than the standard size with new drafts – are you still having this issue?

    @ace5ace – I just logged in as you and saved a blank draft with the editor window much smaller. It looks to me like it “remembered.” Could you check please?

    @gorgewildphoto – I’m not able to re-create the too-wide pane in your blog. Are you still having this issue? Can you start a new thread with your linking issues?

    Cheers!

    Hi, zandyring. The window is much smaller, now, with a quick reference. I’ll be back later, to spend a little more time….

    In the interim, I created a new blog. The window in the new blog, seemed normal, as did the editing features, based on one small post.

    Thank you.

    Well, zandyring…

    In checking the window size, I adjusted it a little, without posting. I just returned, and the window extends way below the bottom of the browser, again.

    The other blog remains unaffected and is the normal size. I did not adjust the size of this editing window, and did not post anything.

    Hi @ace5ace,

    Can you manually make the window smaller again and then save the draft, open a new draft and see if the window has “remembered” the correct size?

    Cheers!

    Hi Zandyring

    I’ve just checked my draft and it’s still huge!

    Ok, thanks for reporting back @cosmictigger. I’ve reported this internally and hopefully I’ll have more to tell you soon!

    Hello again,

    I just put a quick new draft online and all seemed to be going well. Then I tried to edit it (both before and after publication) and the editing pane became enormous again. It’s getting silly now!

    This same issue is also being reported on the WordPress.org support forums. I have tagged this thread for a Staff response. Please subscribe so you are notified when that takes place.

    Okay, will do. Thanks to everyone for your help so far. One of the lenses popped out of my glasses on Xmas Eve, so until they’re sorted out I won’t be able to blog much anyway. :-(

    I’m visually challenged so I empathize. This is an issue that only Staff can address and fix.

    No worries, I can see from further up that they’re on the case. Thanks again for your suggestions. The mystery continues…

    @cosmictigger – can you try clearing your cache and cookies? Here is more information about how to do that:

    If you could also check to see if you have the same issue in a Chrome browser, we can start to narrow down the issue.

    Cheers!

    Hi Zandrying

    I’ve cleared my Firefox cache and cookies again, but it doesn’t seem to have helped. I drafted a new post straight into Chromium (which I’ve never used on this machine before) and at first everything seemed to be going okay. Then I switched to edit mode and the pane got enormous again. I’ve switched back to Firefox now and it’s still enormous.

    Hi there,

    Ok! I’m sorry – I will keep digging.

    To be clear – you are switching between “visual” and “text” on the editor window?

    Cheers!

    Yes, I use both, depending on what mood I’m in. Sometimes I like to draft in Visual Editor, but lately (especially since some of the WYSIWYG features seem to have become unreliable) I’ve been working on the Text Editor instead. (I like to know whether what’s meant to be in bold is in bold, and what’s in italic is in italic, without trying to decode path attributes.)
    The first draft (‘New Post’) always goes in lovely, with a nice compact editing pane, the toolkit at the top, and everything to hand. As soon as I hit ‘save draft’ and start editing, the fun starts… :-(

    Hey guys, I’m not getting too excited here, but I’m putting a new post on my subsidiary blog and so far the editing pane has stayed a manageable size. I’ll keep an eye on it and let you know how things go.
