    Just throwing my name on the pile of folks affected by this annoying issue…
    I’m a Mac 10.8 using Chrome – just trying to add links to images and all I get is unusual arrow and resizing augogo – I thought I was going bananas until I found this thread…
    Whew.
    Hope it gets sorted soon…

    It may in fact be a Chrome issue… Everyone I know who is suffering from the stupid doublespace need and arrow takeover is a Chrome user.

    Hopefully WP will step up on this one, because once I went Chrome, there was no going back.

    They must be working on it, as it got about ten times worse today.

    Ok, I am somewhat able to reproduce this reliably now, but it seems to actually be an issue with Webkit (the rendering engine used by both browsers).

    Once you click the image, the edit/delete buttons actually appear momentarily and are clickable. Though, they will disappear if you move the mouse far enough away.

    Since these buttons appear in the image’s top-right corner, try initially clicking the image there. Does that work for anyone here?

    @macmanx-you mean the “other” top-right corner? :)

    Yes, the other top-right corner, the one on the left. ;)

    I’m still having problems. I can’t delete or resize my photo. I’m using Safari and Firefox.

    The arrow resize is still very aggressive; it’s better than before, but really, not very smooth. I simply avoid it; I don’t find it useful at all.
